Playscape: Two age-specific play structures connected by “stepping stones,” two small play houses, a sandbox, a sprinkler and water wheel, bucket swings, picnic tables.
Safety notes: This is a small, contained playground, making it easy to manage multiple children. There is a little shade around the edges; the rest of the playground can get hot in the sun.
Public restrooms: No.
Food & drink: The South Street Seaport was devastated by Hurricane Sandy, and only some restaurants and food shops have managed to re-open; call ahead to verify. The nearby Fulton Stall Market and New Amsterdam Market are closed for the winter and will re-open in the spring.
