Discover how the whole family can enjoy a visit to the Big Apple, from the top of the Empire State Building to a hot dog cart in Central Park, from exciting museums and shops to any number of historic carousels.
The best things to do in New York City are all approached from a family-friendly angle. The book is organized around "hubs"--major sights around which to plan your day--and provides kid-friendly restaurants, age-range suitability information, ideas for letting off steam, and detailed maps showing the nearest parks, playgrounds, and public bathrooms. Plus there are activities for rainy days, and Kids' Corners in every chapter featuring cartoons, quizzes, and games to keep young travelers happy all day long.
"These books are packed with suggestions for kid-friendly restaurants, outdoor spots where travelin' tots can run free, rainy day fun, and more. They also offer tips for engaging your child's mind and sense of wonder at every stop." – Scholastic Parent & Child
