The Duane Street Hotel welcomes family travelers throughout the year, and largely because our neighborhood of Tribeca is an exceptional place to bring kids. Here are five destinations that makes Tribeca great for families.

Battery Park

Located on the west coast of the Tribeca neighborhood, Battery Park is one of the most beautiful and popular outdoor hangouts in Manhattan. It’s a great place to bring the children and show them all of the gorgeous sailboats cruising by.

Hudson River Park

Just north of Battery Park, Hudson River Park is another riverside destination with a number of fun and exciting things for kids to do. There are a number of games and sports available to enjoy at Hudson River Park, some of which include basketball and volleyball. It’s also a great to ride a complimentary rental bike from the Duane Street Hotel.

One World Trade Center

The tallest building in Manhattan, One World Trade Center is an architectural marvel that’s well worth the visit. An easy walk from the Duane Street Hotel, this Tribeca attraction is best enjoyed with a trip all the way to the top, so you can see the city from its best birds’ eye view.

Fun Museums Just To The North

Just north of Tribeca, and also within walking distance of the hotel, there are two cultural institutions that are especially popular with children. Families visiting can be sure that a day spent at the New York City Fire Museum and the Children’s Museum of the Arts will be well spent.

Escape Games

Over the past several years, Escape Games have become all the rage for urban travelers looking for something different. Visit the location in Tribeca with the kids for an exciting day solving clues on how to get out of a locked apartment—don’t worry, if you can’t solve it, they still let you out.
