The Little Bookroom Guide to New York City with Children focuses on what sophisticated parents with good taste want to know: how to enjoy New York City's most exciting sights and neighborhoods in a relaxing and child-centered way. Organized around places to eat, play, and shop, travel writer Michael Berman and Angela Hederman offer parents well-edited information on New York's amazing food options and how to find terrific meals for eaters both finicky and adventurous. They help you find everything from dim sum and noodles to the best of the city's pizzas, hamburgers, vegetarian options, and artisanal ice cream, with plenty of healthy options and child-friendly restaurants. The guide also… lists great places for picnics, midday snacks, and "only in New York" treats. If you prefer to eat on the go, New Yorkstyle, there are tips for finding the city's most innovative and delicious food trucks. Known for its vibrant energy, New York City offers nearly endless options for play, both indoors and out. Berman and Hederman can guide you through Central Park's many delights, but also to neighborhood playgrounds throughout the city, including suggestions for how best to balance a day of seeing cultural sights and visiting play spaces. They introduce parents to places like an indoor tree house and water park in Chelsea, a playground designed by a world-renowned architect, and the joys of playing in the Lego flagship store when it's closed to the public, and tell you the best time to visit museums and theaters with children, which ones offer family activities, and where to eat when you're there. And when too much play has worn your family out, the authors share their favorite secret gardens and quiet spots for a break. New York is a shopper's paradise, but the volume of stores can be overwhelming. The guide walks you through some of the best finds in the city, stopping in at neighborhood boutiques and sharing tips for how to find great quality clothes and accessories at discount chains. Must-see toy shops and children's bookstores throughout the city are highlighted, including those that offer story hours and other children's activities. Also included is practical advice on finding family-friendly hotels, twenty-four-hour pharmacies, rainy-day activities, and babysitting services, as well as car services with car seats and tips on taking public transportation.
