New York City. The city that never sleeps. The city that captivates, that takes hold, that makes you fall in love over and over again. The city that tells a story the way no other place can. I’m so honored to call it home. Growing up, it didn’t seem very special to me. In fact, I would argue that I took every brick and nook for granted. Times Square lights? What? Didn’t every big city have something like that in its center? It wasn’t until I was much older that I came to appreciate my hometown.
I now live in Long Island with my children. Though they have not grown up in Manhattan like I did, I wanted to be sure that they understand that same rhythm even though they don’t live within the walls of the city. That’s why my husband and I make sure to bring them back as often as possible. We take our family to our favorite spots and create new memories together.
I wanted to tell you about a few of my favorite NYC places to visit with the children, just in case you happen to have a trip planned.
