Kid-friendly New York City

New York City has endless possibilities for entertaining young children, beginning with NYC's backyard, Central Park.

While the Zoo in Central Park is a second runner-up to the Bronx Zoo, it is definitely one of the best in the country - and the Tisch Children's Zoo there has never disappointed any kids we've known! Face painting, balloon sculptors, clowns, puppet shows and other child friendly performances are provided by local street performers as you approach the entrance of the Children's Zoo.

A little further uptown, you'll find the Museum of Natural History. The dinosaurs, the mummies and the Indians make this the perfect kid's place to explore. The Planetarium also has a great show for older kids.

The Staten Island Ferry should definitely be on your list. The price is great - it's free!

Forget about waiting for hours and dealing with crowds to see the Statue of Liberty - this ride floats you close enough to say hello and get some great pictures. You'll need to get off in Staten Island and return for the ride back to the city featuring a great view of the world's most famous skyline

From the Manhattan-side ferry entrance, it is a short walk to South Street Seaport along the East River with tall ships available for touring. The Hudson River - on the West Side of the island - is the home of the Intrepid Air-Sea-Space Museum where families get to go aboard and climb around the inside of a huge aircraft carrier and a submarine.

The Empire State Building is probably already on your grown-up list of things to do. Great - the kids will love it too. But don't leave the Empire State Building without visiting the New York Sky Ride.

Of course, for all its glamor and excitement, New York also rolls out the red carpet for families with Kids Night on Broadway now extended throughout the year on the first Tuesday and Wednesday of every month - free.
