NY City with teens

Jump to last reply

On our upcoming 3 day visit to NY City I'm planning to take our children (13 and 14) to Chinatown. I'd like them to experience the uniqueness of Chinatown and eat an authentic Chinese lunch (dim sum, etc). Where are your favorite places to eat and shop there? I've been there once before but wasn't too comfortable stepping into one of the really authentic looking places there.

We are going to stay on the Upper West Side. I'm considering walking to Central Park and renting bikes to explore on Saturday morning. Would it be best to go on our own or should we take a guided bike tour?

My 13 yr old daughter is a science buff and wants to visit a science oriented museum. Is there another one besides the NYSCI in Queens? How much time should we allow for that if we end up going there?

Both my kids love music and I would like to take them to Ellen's Stardust restaurant. Would you recommend lunch over breakfast or would dinner be the most fun?

Thank you!
