Where should I take the kiddos in NYC?

I’m taking my girls (10 & 14) to New York City for 3 days in late June. It’ll be their first visit and I’ve begun the utterly impossible task of planning the perfect itinerary. I grew up near NYC and went there all the time, so I know the basics, but haven’t been there as a tourist in decades. Help! [more inside]

Specific timing for a few days in NYC

I've read through previous NYC vacation posts/replies, which was really helpful with thinking through what we'd be interested in seeing. I'd love some specific help with organizing our itinerary, and what it means for how we'd arrange things and travel between the different stuff we'd like to do. We're planning on flying into LaGuardia most likely on a Tuesday early afternoon and leaving on Saturday early afternoon. [more inside]

A day outside Manhattan

This Sunday, Mrs. Ardo and I are heading to NYC for the week. There are plenty of things to do in Manhattan and we plan on doing some of them (plays, Cloisters, LES strolling, etc). I'm also looking for a neighborhood outside Manhattan where we can get very good pizza or other non-fancy food for lunch and maybe dinner, see some interesting new art and do a little shopping. Any suggestions?

Where to stay in NYC that doesn't feel big-city?

2 days in NYC, activities split between Midtown and Upper Manhattan but not a fan of the midtown vibe for overnight. Is there a home base location that would be reasonably affordable, safe, convenient to transit, but in a locale with a somewhat quieter, more open, human-scale feel? [more inside]

What's fun in NYC for an 8.5 year old these days?

I grew up in NYC, and a bunch of my family still lives there. My nuclear unit will go down to NYC for a few days next week with our 8.5 year old. She has been to NYC before. Interests are listed inside, but she is very ADHD, and would be looking more for fun things to DO than things to SEE. We'll just be there two full days and two half days. [more inside]

Are all roadside assistance companies equally bad?

I'm in Upstate New York. I recently needed a jumpstart, and I had a bad experience with my current provider. Their app told me that they had located a service provider, but no one ever came (and the call center finally admitted that the app gives the same answer to everyone, and they couldn't find anyone to come out and help me). I'm looking for a better alternative, but all the companies seem to have lots of negative reviews online. [more inside]
