Best Places for Families and Children on the Upper West Side: West 80s  
Many New Yorkers consider the West 80s the heart of the Upper West Side.

Best Places for Families and Children on the Upper West Side: West 70s  
For most born and bred city dwellers, the Upper West Side truly does not begin until you’re in the West 70s. And for those same die-hard New Yorkers, the West 70s have become more like Times Square North rather than the cozy, quaint neighborhood of yesteryear. Regardless, for families looking for activities to keep their young ones busy while giving them a true sense of a historical NYC neighborhood, there are a number of must-sees in this part of the borough that make this neighborhood very desirable, from top-rated restaurants and bakeries to great play spaces in both Central and Riverside Parks and the entrance to the American Museum of Natural History.

Best Places for Families and Children on the Upper West Side: West 60s  
One of New York City’s most popular neighborhoods is the Upper West Side. Each section can sometimes feel like its own city within the city. A lot of born-and-bred New Yorkers will tell you that the Upper West Side technically doesn’t begin until you get into the West 70s, but many say it begins on West 60th at Columbus Circle. I’m in the latter group! I love this neighborhood, referred to in real estate lingo as the Lincoln Center area, mainly because Lincoln Center is located in the middle of the neighborhood. You have a nice mix of what I’ll call traditional and cultural New York City landmarks, great indoor spaces, the beginning of Central Park, as well as family-oriented restaurants and shops. Read more
12 Family Fun Purim Celebrations Around New York City  
It’s that time of year again. Dressing up like kings and queens with crowns, scepters, masks and robes. Celebrating with family, friends and food. No, not Mardi Gras–Purim! Like most religions, there’s always one celebration that brings out the kid in everyone and for Jewish people it’s Purim. But Purim is more than just a big party; it’s a celebration of Queen Esther and her plan that foiled the destruction of the Jewish empire. And what better way to commemorate this historic moment in time than to rejoice with festivals, carnivals, costume balls, concerts, and of course, food. Here are 12 family fun celebrations happening all over New York City to help mark the occasion–and the whole Megillah (Yiddish for a very long, involved story)! Read more
