NYC October Activities for Kids

Pumpkin Point

Hello Basically Soho NYC Fam!

We're back with another NYC Kids guide for the month of October!

This week we're highlighting Pumpkin Point 2023 on Governors Island!

Take the ferry to Governors Island and take the short walk up the hill to the left to Nolan Park. We recommend getting there right when they open at 10am.

There are tons of pumpkins lining the grounds and they are all free! Take one and head over to the white tent for pumpkin painting. There are lots of food trucks, beer, wine and coffee available for purchase.
