So you know how you’ve lived in New York City most or all of your life, and there’s all those things you never did until someone came to visit? (See: Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, walking the Brooklyn Bridge, etc.)
Well, how about on a really local level? Are there Sheepshead Bay attractions that everyone talks about but you’ve never gone to? I know people who haven’t been to Randazzo’s or Roll-N-Roaster – and, gulp, I’ve never been on a fishing boat.
Well, for those of you with kids who’ve never really found the time to show them the neighborhood, Time Out New York Kids put together a good roundup of attractions that’ll get you to those sights and keep the kids entertained.
The guide breaks down the day by hours, from 8:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., taking you and the kiddos to some neighborhood staples that, yes, include a fishing boat, Randazzo’s and Roll-N-Roaster. It also has some free and neat activities like a walk through the Holocaust Park, to Manhattan Beach’s impressive architecture, and creating crayon rubbings from the fish engravings along the piers. And a really cool twist is that it doesn’t just focus on the old school landmarks (they never mention Lundy’s); they throw in newer establishments that would be a big hit with kids – like Arbuz Frozen Treats on Sheepshead Bay Road.
