Treat Dad To NYC
Celebrate Father’s Day in New York. With summer taking over the city, there’s ample NYC family activities to enjoy. The city is a melting pot of arts, sports, and culture. There’s something for your father to enjoy, whatever his interests. Take dad to see sports history, a Broadway play, or a special brunch.
For a special Father’s Day brunch, take dad to Tavern on the Green. The gilded dining room inside Central Park is a New York hallmark. If dad likes local eats better, take him to Smorgasburg, a gathering of the city’s best restaurants, with cuisine from across the world.
Or, take dad out to the ball game. Home of the most successful team in baseball, Yankee Stadium boasts a glittering history of hall of famers. The stadium’s museum honors club legends like Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle, and Joe DiMaggio. Classic ballpark food, like hot dogs, popcorn, and snacks are on offer. The stadium also hosts NYCFC, Manhattan’s newest soccer team.
If he likes drinking and sailing, your dad will love the Clipper City Lobster & Beer Lovers Sail. The two-hour sailing excursion floats on a Clipper City Tall Ship, a replica of a Civil War-era cargo schooner. You’ll be treated to a summertime feast with two Maine-style lobster rolls and unlimited craft beer from local Coney Island Brewing Company. Hornblower’s Father’s Day Brunch Cruise, meanwhile, takes you past NYC’s biggest landmarks while listening to a jazz quartet and enjoying a full buffet along with unlimited mimosas and sangria.
If you’re taking kids with you, the city has plenty of adventure. The Central Park Conservancy’s Family Performance Festival presents eco-friendly plays every Sunday at noon. On Father’s Day, they’ll have a special dance party with Aly Sunshine and Funkytown Playground. Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Family Field Days are an excellent way to get kids running around. All necessary equipment is provided, so you just need good sneakers and a lot of energy. While your kids play, you can relax and take in the breathtaking view of the Manhattan skyline.
Stay with The Lucerne this Father’s Day, and have a New York holiday. Our location on the Upper West Side puts you blocks from Central Park, along with the city’s best dining, museum, arts, and other UWS family events. Make dad feel like the city is his.
