10 Things I Can’t Wait to Do with My Daughters in NYC

By ilanawiles |

I grew up on Long Island but when I was 10, my parents separated and my dad moved to New York City.

Putting aside the difficulties of watching your parents split, their eventual divorce meant my sister and I got to spend every other weekend taking in the sights of one of the best cities on earth.

I’d be lying if I said that we didn’t spend most of our time at Pizzeria Uno and the Cabbage Patch Kid hospital, but we also got to play New York City tourists on a fairly regular basis.

Now that I am raising a family in Manhattan and bringing one more little girl into the mix this November, I find myself thinking about taking them to all those familiar sights I loved myself as a little girl.

Below are the top 10 things that I can’t wait to do with my daughters in New York City. Perfect for both NYC residents and families just visiting.
