Queens has plenty of indoor play spaces with open play hours for when it's too cold, too rainy, or too hot for the kids to run around outside. In fact, it has more than Manhattan and is gaining on Brooklyn.
We found 15 indoor romping spots in the borough that offer drop-in sessions open to the public, including several newcomers, such as Shastye Art Gallery and Play Space, Good Day Play Cafe, and Sunnyside Plays. We also welcomed a complete overhaul of Let's Play Playhouse in Astoria, and City Owlets, which just opened in 2017.
Bonus: All of these spots host birthday parties, too, and most are much more affordable than their Manhattan competitors.
