As a local New Yorker, I'm asked all the time for my TOP 3 THINGS TO DO WITH KIDS IN NYC. This is tough, but if I had to pick these are my three-go-to options.

High Line Elevated Park

The best views in Manhattan don't have to cost a fortune. One of our favorite vistas is 100% free to enjoy. The High Line city park is a glorious elevated green space on the west side of the city. That's why it's one of our three favorite things to do in NYC. 

High Line Elevated Park

Situated on an old elevated subway line, the High Line has enticing public art, pretty planting, water features, grassy expanses and my-oh-my some spectacular views. Extremely stroller friendly, the park has two elevators and bathrooms that make an afternoon outing a complete joy.
