Domino Park is a five-acre oasis on the edge of the always-hip neighborhood of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Hipsters flock to it on weekends for fish tacos and great views; local families head straight to the playground. Those who love the feel of Williamsburg will love this as a vibrant addition to the scene. The park is only a quarter-mile long, making it easy to navigate—all the major features are easy to spot from the entrance. . https://ny.curbed.com/maps/things-to-do-new-york-city-kids
A stone’s throw from the Williamsburg Bridge, this second Kings County outpost is all about the booth. The huge booths line the dark room, and can comfortably tuck away big families who want to delight in the reinvention of one of the greatest snack-tivities of all time: the (off-menu) pu pu platter, served on the ever-entertaining lazy Susan. Or devour an amazing crispy garlic chicken. Kids love the cold sesame noodles (without the chili paste) or just plain noodles with a little sesame oil. And the cocktails are strong, exotic, and often come in groovy glassware. The original Williamsburg location is great for families too, but this one has more booths. (Did we mention kids love booths?) . https://www.grubstreet.com/bestofnewyork/best-restaurants-for-kids-in-nyc.htmll
This nondescript corner joint looks like just another neighborhood burger spot, but get closer and you'll catch a glimpse of old-school arcade games guarding the entrance. Inside, posters and newspaper clippings celebrate comic characters and gaming culture. A walk-up counter lets you order "hero" (healthy) or "villain" (greasy, diner goodness) foods. While you wait for your order, your family can play their fill of classic board games or action-packed video games. . https://mommypoppins.com/new-york-city-kids/restaurants/nyc-restaurants-with-kids-entertainment-and-activities
