The 5 Best Sustainable Date Night Ideas in NYC

01

Arcadia Earth & West Bourne

718 Broadway & 137 Sullivan Street, Manhattan

01

Experience Arcadia Earth, a pop-up museum using only recycled and biodegradable materials to create animals, underwater spaces and landscapes. Through VR, projection mapping and interactive exhibits, you’ll be transported around our planet and into the ocean learning about sustainability and your impact. Keep the community vibe going at West Bourne, a bright and airyvegetarian restaurant. The restaurant donates some proceeds to The Door, and works as part of a community collective, with partners and vendors that are also community-conscious.

02

Package Free Shop & The 18th Room

75 9th Street & 134 9th Avenue, Manhattan

Package Free Shop & The 18th Room

Ahead of the curve before NY’s plastic bag ban, the Package Free Shop offers basically anything you need (for your kitchen to bathroom) package free or in reusable packaging. The items are also sustainably made, and the shop practices what it preaches. You can step back in time before climate change was a major blip on the radar in The 18th Room. After walking through the speakeasy’s decoy coffee supply shop, try some of its light bites, or one of its curated cocktails. We suggest letting the bartenders do their magic.

03

Material for the Arts & Dutch Kills Centraal

33-00 Northern Boulevard & 38-40 29th Street, Queens

Material for the Arts & Dutch Kills Centraal

33-00 Northern Boulevard & 38-40 29th Street, Queens

Visit Materials for the Arts, the city’s largest creative reuse center. The reusable materials collected from businesses and individuals are refurbished and made available, for free, to art-focused nonprofits, public schools and city agencies. It also offers art workshops, art exhibits, and professional development courses for teachers. Next, head to Dutch Kills Centraal for some eclectic bites. Housed in a bar/restaurant dating back to the 1940s, the newest owners salvaged original tiling and other décor during its renovation a few years back.

04

Fitzhugh Karol's Sculptures & Vinegar Hill House

York Street, and on the corner of Prospect and Jay Streets & 72 Hudson Avenue, Brooklyn

04

You have until April 28 to see Brooklyn-based artist Fitzhugh Karol’s steel sculptures, which are recycled interactive sculptures from his previous single large sculpture, Eyes. After grabbing some photos, grab a bite at the cozy Vinegar Hill House. If it’s nice out, try to snag a seat in the backyard. The menu is chock full of delicious dishes and make sure to save room for dessert.

05

Pioneer Works & The Good Fork

159 Pioneer Street & 391 Van Brunt Street

Pioneer Works & The Good Fork

Pioneer Works is an artist-run cultural center, free of charge for the public. The building itself has an interesting history, and is the perfect venue to inspire artists, scientists and out-of-the-box thinkers. There are rotating exhibits, performances, talks and workshops, so check its calendar.Indulge at The Good Fork, a Red Hook mainstay for good reason. You’ll feel the intimacy as soon as you walk in, as the restaurant was built by chef/co-owner Sohui Kim’s husband and co-owner, Benjamin Schneider, and taste the cookery passion with each bite of the seasonal New American/globally inspired dishes.
