Visiting Manhattan, New York, with 2 kids is a challenge!

It’s a great way to discover it, though!

I’ve been several times in New York, for business or for fun. But when I planned this trip on last October, the challenge was to enjoy New York with kids and have them enjoy it! So just forget about trendy rooftops and awesome boutiques! Anyway, we had a wonderful time!

So many posts were written about New York… What could I add? The magical thing about New York is that it is constantly re-inventing itself while keeping this really special atmosphere. You can come every other month and find a new exiting place to eat or chill. And still feel the same you felt the first time you came: feels like home…

Here are some of the best addresses we enjoyed:

Blacklight over Flatiron, near Madison Square Park, one of the most amazing and inspiring buildings in New York

Crazy ceiling over Madison Square Park

Eataly Market on Madison Square Park, awesome market with a wide range of italian food and delicious gelati…

Bareburger, 366 W 46th St, New York : best burger in Hell’s Kitchen, Organic and all-natural

 

 

Butcher’s Daughter, 19 Kenmare St, New York, is THE place to have a really trendy healthy breakfast in Soho; The homemade chocolate spread is amazing…

 

Soho district

The Children’s Museum, 212 W 83rd St, New York, is the perfect place to go while visiting NewYork with kids! A lot of creative activities and exiting experiences.

Can’t miss the mythic Empire Diner, 210 10th Ave, New York, for a yummy brunch!

Nice walk on the high-line, but kind of overcrowded…

Ganservoort, 353 W 14th St, New York, is a new super cool market, don’t miss the Crepe Sucrée here!

Brooklyn Bridge is an absolute must, better on a sunny early morning, just stunning!

Fulton Market, 55 Fulton St, New York, is a gorgeous place to have lunch outside, hidden in Wall Street district…

Manhattan from Liberty Island point of view is terrific!

Ellis Island is really worth a crossing

Backlight from the Top of the Rock…

I’ve visited both the Empire State Building and the Rockefeller Tower. I’d rather recommend the Top of the Rock, Rockefeller Center, 30 Rockefeller Plaza, New York, the perspective on Central Park is insane! There are 3 floors to enjoy the amazing view.

Central Park Zoo, 64th St and 5th Ave, New York: small but so nice and well integrated in its landscape, perfect for kids!

Enjoy a break on Central Park huge lawns

Leaving NewYork from LaGuardia airport is quite special, here you have a stunning view on the skyline…
