12 Things a Manhattan Mom Wants You to Know

By marinka |

Hi, I’m Marinka and I’m raising my kids in Manhattan. Mostly it’s been great. Expensive, but great. I love NYC and I love that my children love it too. But over the years, people have made assumptions about what it’s like to raise children here. Some of them have been waaaay off (no, we don’t have a butler; nor do we live at the Plaza) while others are pretty right on (yes, it would be nice to have a backyard).

  1. Loved this post! We had to move to NY and chose the suburbs because of the whole school situation. I wish you would have posted this weeks ago before I wasted $75 and five hours of my life (before I stood in a line to get to a new line to get to a new line to have my kids complain about the dumb view then try to get me to dump a wad of cash in the Empire State Gift Store). Keep the NY posts coming!!
