Making the move into a new-to-you building and looking to explore an area you haven’t lived before, but you want to make sure there’s enough to do for you and your family? Fortunately for you, our building is not only a great choice for families but, thanks to its convenient location in the heart of Gowanus, the world is your oyster when it comes to finding local family-friendly activities near 363 Bond Street apartments. Here are some of our go-tos.

 

Walk The Brooklyn Bridge

Yes, it can be jam-packed when you’re on the Manhattan side, due to the influx of tourists. But the crowds thin and there are fewer vendors hocking merchandise as you get closer to Brooklyn. One thing that remains constant: The skyline views are breathtaking no matter where you’re standing. (Pro tip: Be sure to stay in the pedestrian lane to make way for cyclists pedaling by.)

 

Head To The Zoo

Everyone knows about the Bronx Zoo, but fewer know about the 12-acre Prospect Park Zoo tucked away in one of Brooklyn’s most notorious green spaces. Whether you want to see baboons or goats or reptiles of all shapes and sizes, this conversation-forward spot packs in tons.

Have A Picnic

While you’re in the area, why not spread out on the lawn and spend an afternoon eating al fresco. There’s so much greenery to take advantage of in Prospect Park, you’ll be able to temporarily escape thoughts of lockdown while you enjoy a home-packed meal and give the kids the opportunity to expel some extra energy by running around.

 

Stroll the Brooklyn Botanic Garden

With some 52 lush acres to explore, this will keep you and the gang coming back time and again. There are even a series of educational programs, geared both toward adults and children, that you can sign up for if your crew wants to learn even more about the world of horticulture.

And don’t forget the myriad museums that are all within a short distance from our front door. There’s the Brooklyn Museum, Salvator Mundi Museum of Art, Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts, New York Transit Museum, Micro Museum, and more, most of which you can easily walk to if you want.

You don’t have to search very far for local family-friendly activities near 363 Bond Street apartments. But the first step to enjoying them is giving us a call and booking an appointment to see your future home.
