What do your kids love most about living in New York?
There is such variety in NY. One day we could be swimming in the Hamptons and the next we could be running around the Museum of Natural History. We literally live in the center of it all! New York is a state like no other.
What's a great destination for a family vacation in New York?
I have such fond memories of Lake George as a child. But now that I'm an adult with a family of my own, we find ourselves returning to Montauk over and over again. From lighthouses you can climb to clam chowder festivals that everyone will enjoy - this is certainly one spot to visit this year.
What's your favorite affordable outdoor activity to do with your kids?
In the Fall, we love to go pumpkin and apple picking upstate. Entry is free and there is usually a play set installed somewhere on property. You pay for whatever you "pick" which makes this option very manageable for a family on a budget. We always allow the children to choose two tiny pumpkins and one bag of apples. It's a great day that is filled with memories!
