Battle your fellow New Yorkers in the most fun way possible: an urban pillow fight! Select a feather-free pillow or teddy bear, bring your cuddly weapon to Washington Square Park, and on the organizers’ signal, start swinging. It’s a hilarious scene in the middle of the city, with some pillowfighters donning pajamas to add to the whimsy. Once a ceasefire is called, you can either bring your war-worn pillow back home or drop it at a donation point. Last year the event’s organizers donated more than 1,500 pillows to homeless shelters in Brooklyn and the Bronx.
