Spring Break in Greenwich Village

From kindergarden to college, students flock to Greenwich Village for fun things to do on an authentic Spring Break adventure. Whether it is a first-time NYC trip or a relaxing staycation, look to the list below for places in the city that will make for a memorable week.

For the kids

Imaginasium (177 Sullivan St.) is the perfect indoor play place for those with toddlers to entertain. The popular space recommends reservations although they are not required.

Bowlmor Lanes (110 University Pl.) boasts 44 immaculate bowling lanes with moderately-priced food and (adult) drinks too! Book a lane and bring the family.

Blue Man Group (434 Lafayette St.) is an international phenomenon. Why not take in the eye-popping spectacle this spring break?

Minetta Playgroud (Minetta Lane & 6th Ave.) is one of the few playgrounds in the Central Village. Take advantage of (hopefully) beautiful weather and a free activity. Fun fact: the playground is a memorial to a long buried stream that ran through Manhattan when the Dutch were settling it? That's something to tell the kids at the water fountain.

Kidville (67 E. 11th St.) offers a wide-range of classes and programs in the arts, gym and more for children up to age six.

For the college student

Washington Square Park is one of the Village's most popular attractions, and the arch is its most iconic landmark. Springtime brings out the best street performers and brightest tulips.

IFC Center (323 6th Ave.) is one the premier independant movie houses in the nation. Don't miss their midnight movie series. There's always a good cult classic to be seen!

(Le) Poisson Rouge (158 Bleeker St.) remains of the neighborhood's premier music/literary performance spaces. Check the schedule to see who's playing when you'll be in town.

Museum of the American Gangster(80 St. Marks Pl.) shows off a different side of NYC history. Discover the seedy underbelly of tommy guns and bootleggers.
