New York loves children. And they’re everywhere: posing on magazine covers; dining out in style; strutting fashion runways and the city’s streets. Broadway is putting on shows for them. Restaurants are catering to them. Hotels have packages for them. New businesses and brands are targeting them. Even Times Square, like a reformed bad girl, has cleaned up its act (mostly) and is embracing the PG set.

There has been no better time to visit New York than right now. From the outdoors (Central Park) to the indoors (play spaces, theater and museums galore) from uptown to downtown and cross-town, New York has something for everyone in the family. To take advantage of everything the Big Apple has to offer, plan well to keep the kids entertained, and be sure to leave some time to sip Cosmos like the Sex and the City set after a long day touring the town.
