NYC with a 2 year old

Jump to last reply

I am crazy, I know. We had been planning our first kidless trip to NYC for months.. and then our babysitting situation fell through, so instead of cancel we decided to just bring him with us. I realize this changes things, but he travels well (this will not be his first trip - first was a cruise to 4 islands and second was a trip to beaches of FL and Disney) and I know we will have a great time. Cue freakout mode as now I have 2 weeks to totally revamp our itinerary!

We are staying with a friend in Long Island and will be training to/from Manhattan daily. We arrive at 9 am on Wednesday and leave at 8:30 am on Sunday, so we have Wed-Saturday to explore. I understand that the travel time to-from LI will be 2 hours round trip. Our original plans on Wednesday included a walking/food tour of the village with a picnic in Washington Square Park and a stop at Union Square Greenmarket. We will most likely keep this and just not count on spending hours roaming like we had originally planned.


I need some insight from people who have tackled the city with a toddler in tow and people who live there who can recommend some tips.


Here is a list of places we would LIKE to visit Thursday-Saturday, help me get this down to a realistic list please. Bonus points for family friendly restaurant recommendations near any of these attractions:

• Central Park
• SOL – going there vs staten island ferry to get a view (is Liberty Island come and go as you please?)
• Fort Green Flea – smorgasburg
• Walk over Brooklyn Bridge – Brooklyn Bridge Park and Jane’s Carousel
• South Street Seaport
• 9/11 memorial
• Top of the Rock
• Times Square
• 5th ave: Toys R us ferris wheel, FAO Schwarz Piano, St Patrick’s Cathedral
• High Line
• Chelsea Market

Rainy day activities: children’s museum of Manhattan, American museum of natural history.
