New York for a mom and son?

New Yorkers: Visiting early next year, wife and child traveling with me. Wrinkle: I'll be working during the days, so I'm looking for cool (and safe) things for them to do and places to go while I sit in a convention center.
We're going to be staying at Yotel on 10th Avenue, between 41st and 42nd. Google Maps tells me that's a short walk from Times Square, so that's obviously one thing. What are some others that are cool for a mom and a 10-year-old boy?
Another wrinkle/complication/thing that I'm fretting about: My wife is petite and very sweet and outgoing, and has spent virtually no time in big cities. So I'm very worried about them accidentally wandering into places that might not be the safest for them. Given that neighborhood, are there any directions they shouldn't go, neighborhoods to avoid, etc.? They will be on foot most of the time, with the occasional taxi ride.
