What do your kids love most about living in New York?

What's a great destination for a family vacation in New York?

What's your favorite affordable outdoor activity to do with your kids?

What's your favorite kid-friendly restaurant in NYC?

Alicia Harper

I like to go places with fairly easy, no-fuss dishes, like pizza or pasta. My son is a picky eater and wouldn't eat anything that looks "weird" so I love CPK (California Pizza Kitchen) on East 29th.

What's your go-to snack for your kids?

Alicia Harper

Fruits!!! My son loves apples, grapes, bananas, strawberries, and blueberries. Whenever we're in a hurry and I need a snack for him, I turn to fruits.

Can you recommend a stylish bag that is big enough for all the stuff moms tote around? Please share a link if you can.

Alicia Harper

While I don't carry a diaper bag anymore because my son is 4-years-old, I do carry around an oversized bag to fit all of his things in them. I love oversized bags that are stylish and I'm currently obsessed with my brown leather one from Urban Outfitters.

Which is better for raising a family: city or suburbs, and why?

Alicia Harper

I certainly think that it is a matter of personal choice and personal preference. I am a city gal, as have been. When I had my son, I stayed in NYC and decided to raise him here. I love that there is always something fun, interactive, and educational going on, whether it be a trip to the museum, a live show. or simply lounging around at our local playground. I also love that the city is busy. It keeps me energized and gives me life, so to speak. My son loves living in the city as well and even likes to hail a cab! The one thing that almost (almost!) made me move to the suburbs is kindergarten application and the entire process of getting my son in a good enough school for him. But, still, I decided to stay in NYC. It's my city and my love.
