120 Hudson Street at North Moore Street
Bubby’s and I became acquainted in the years before children when there was nothing to quench that 4 am nightlife hunger like a slice or maybe a whole pie.

Play: Pier 25
Mini-golf, a fabulous children’s playground and a great place to start you walk or run along the river, Pier 25 is an incredible outdoor space for families in downtown Manhattan. Plus, frequent celebrity sightings don’t hurt either.
