What’s tall, loved by New Yorkers, and full of life? Sure, skyscrapers are all those things, but so are trees! Architects spend years designing the skyscrapers, but trees have been perfecting their own architecture in response to the environment for eons. On a guided walk through Battery Park City we’ll observe and draw the trees around us and understand some ways they are like skyscrapers, from their roots to their leaves.
This is an in-person children’s program that meets at the Skyscraper Museum, 39 Battery Pl.
You must reserve a place for your child/family by clicking the “RSVP” button above. This will forward you to Eventbrite for registration. After registering, you will receive emails to confirm your attendance through a Google Form (you only need to fill this out once). If you do not confirm attendance by the Friday morning before the program, your places will be canceled. Every child should be accompanied by a parent/guardian.
Family programs are free! Reservation priority is given to The Skyscraper Museum members. Want to become a member? Summer programs are supported by a Community Partnership with the Battery Park City Authority.
