American Museum of Natural History (West 81st Street & Central Park West)
Enjoy a Museum-wide festival of art, science, and culture in honor of Earth Day. The schedule is packed with family-friendly culture including a site-specific interactive umbrella dance with Pilobolus, live harp, drum, and piano music, performances by the Deedle Deedle Dees and other singer-songwriters, screenings of Wall-E and nature documentaries, bird-inspired storytime and origami, and more activities for all ages.
Eats & Treats: Go casual at Shake Shack across Columbus, home of delicious cheeseburgers and decadent frozen concretes (including a 'Natural History Crunch-stellation'), or avoid the crowds and cross 77th Street for antipasti, artisanal pastas and paninis at classy Caffe Storico in the New-York Historical Society. The new larger Levain Bakery (home of the famous giant chocolate chip cookies) is a few blocks west at Amsterdam & 77th Street.
