Come Out And Play!

07/16/2014

Got a hankering for mini-golf? Want to sink someone’s Battleship? Fancy a tan on the beach? Like a cold brew?

Head down to Water Street, where you can do all this and more!

From now through Labor Day, the Downtown Alliance’s new summer pop-up series — “Game On!” — is turning Water Street into your own personal playground.

At Water/Whitehall plaza, you can play shuffleboard, take fitness classes or soak up some rays at an “urban beach.”

Practice your putt at a unique, 3-hole mini-golf course at the Elevated Acre.

Challenge your friends to a game of Giant Connect Four at Gouverneur Lane Plaza.

On Thursday, July 17, from 12 P.M. to 8 P.M. at Coenties Slip, make sure to check out the Pop-Up Market organized by GrowNYC and the Downtown Alliance.  Pick up some fresh produce, enjoy prepared food from local restaurants and, at 5 P.M., listen to live music.

While you’re at Coenties Slip, try your hand at cornhole and quench your thirst at a beer garden.

If you’re hungry, go to Old Slip Park for a scrumptious assortment of snacks. Our rotating series of food trucks brings you some of the city’s most beloved food purveyors. The trucks will be there until August 29th from 11 A.M. to 5 P.M., Monday through Friday.

There’s much, much more.

To get your summer on, go here.
