Tons of museums are included, from the venerable Museum of Natural History to such little-known but surefire hits as the Fire Department New york Fire Zone, the Lower East Side Tenement Museum, and the New York Transit Museum. New edition features new maps (including a new subway map), the best family-friendly restaurants and hotels, more budget tips, and an expanded hard-to-please teen activities and itinerary.

 

QUOTE: "New York City with Kids is a treat from the word go. Wilson has road-tested the Big Apple sites with her son, Alex and offers an encyclopedic—and easy to read—guide to family-friendly hotels … On a budget? Wilson lists museums with a "pay-as-you-wish" policy, so you can enjoy all of the bling without the ka-ching. She recommends the United Nations gift shop for terrific souvenirs and the New York Gotham Baseball Club for re-enactments of games as they were played in 1864. Filled with insidertips, perfect picks for the pint-sized and great ideas galore, New York City with Kids is a home run!” – Debbi Kickham, Community Newspaper Group (Boston)
