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

The museums, theater and amazing variety of food!

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

The Upper West Side: The American Museum of Natural History, exploring Central Park, hitting an IMAX movie at Lincoln Square or a concert at Lincoln Center, pit stop at the Apple Store and then Shake Shack for burgers.

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

Museums and theater. Love to spontaneously head to Times Square and see what's on the TKTS Board. We also love to go to the Met and MoMA just to see one area, or one special exhibit. It's so nice not to have to see the entire museum at once.

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

We love to go for Dim Sum! There's nothing better than sitting down in a bustling Chinatown restaurant and immediately have carts of steaming, delicious food appear! The kids try everything when we go for dim sum because everything is in tiny portions and it's always fun when it comes off a cart. Our fave dim sum restaurants are Triple 8 because it's huge and you can always get seated right away and Ping's Seafood. Even if you have totally picky eaters this is a great experience. They can always eat dumplings and rice! Plus it's super cheap.
