March 2020 Events in Lower Manhattan

Mar 12, 2020

We're so excited that Spring is finally around the corner. And as the weather begins to warm up, many New Yorkers can finally leave their apartments and enjoy the outdoors in March. Below, find six activities that get you out of your place and into the streets & parks of our great city. 

Pop-up Flamenco at Brookfield Place

Starting March 12th and running through April 3rd, Brookfield Place is hosting a variety of events for the 20th Anniversary of the NY Flamenco Festival. Head to the Winter Garden for flamenco classes, concerts, performances, and even an opening night flash mob--all free and open to the public.

Wavefield, Variation O

Through the end of March, Seaport Square (next to Pier 17) will feature an installation of fun, light-up seesaws called Wavefield, Variation O. The project is meant to encourage play between the public and the urban space, so bring your kids or just your inner child. While you’re there, pop on over to the rooftop ice skating rink at Winterland before it closes mid-March!

Green Market at The Oculus

Until the weather warms up, the GrowNYC GreenMarket can be found inside the Oculus at Westfield World Trade Center.
