Cool NYC activites for pre teens

Jump to last reply

I need to come up with some fun things to do in NYC for 11 and 12 year old girls (they’ll be in NYC next month for 2 days). They’re from Chicago so although this is their first NYC trip they are used to being in a large city. First day will probably be the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.

Empire State Building is not on the agenda and I don’t think this family would want to take the HOHO bus. I think they’re staying in midtown but if downtown seems more fun they can change hotels. Perhaps something in Central Park. I really don’t know what they like to do but I’m assuming typical pre-teen things.

Also need a really good pizza restaurant. The one I know is Keste on Bleeker. Is there anything similar in midtown? Anyone know of a pizzeria that tops Keste?

Thanks!
