Uptown Easter Egg Hunts
Jackie Robinson Recreation Center (Central Harlem) and Pleasant Village Community Garden (East Harlem), Saturday, April 20
Morningside Park (South Harlem) and Dorothy K. McGowan Memorial Garden (Washington Heights), Sunday, April 21
Parks both large and small across Upper Manhattan are holding Easter egg hunts this holiday weekend. Expect a variety of activities at each, from meeting the Easter Bunny at the Jackie Robinson Recreation Center to hunting for real hard-boiled eggs– as opposed to the plastic kind–at the Dorothy K. McGowan Memorial Garden. (A reader writes in that there's also an Easter egg hunt at the Church of the Intercession on Saturday at noon.)
