Best of New York 2014 • Fun

Best Romper Room

  • Twinkle Playspace

    144 Frost St., nr. Graham Ave., Williamsburg; 718-349-1300

    Cookie-cutter play spaces have no business in Williamsburg, as the neighborhood is dotted with custom-designed spots like Frolic!, Klub4Kidz, and, now, Twinkle. This former warehouse is more children’s museum than kiddie gym, with interactive exhibits for the 6-and-under set that challenge developing motor skills. Thrill-seekers can put out pretend fires with real water at the Red Hot Fire House station, while the dress-up salon (equipped with styling chairs and primping mirrors) caters to more subdued play. On weekdays, locals drop by for less crowded sessions with their toddlers ($25 for the first visit; $135 for a six-visit pass), while the high-energy older crowd takes over on weekends.
