She shared with us 4 amazing tips on what to do in NYC with kids, since she’s got two beautiful little ones.
And, yes, New York City is a great for kids or to actually have kids, and we’ve explained why!
Here goes Carol Celico’s top spots:
The New Victory Theater
The New Victory Theater has amazing shows and is practically one of the only theaters in town with a good selection for kids! The good thing is that the shows are made for adults as well, making the night-out very fun to go with the family.
There, they create a delicious world of fantasy to entertain children and present plays, musicals, circus shows… All super playful and fun!
I always look for some cultural programs to go with my kids, since New York City is one of the largest cultural and entertainment centers in the world!
Location: 209 West 42nd Street
Bryant Park’s HBO Summer Film Festival
Bryant Park’s HBO Summer Film Festival will have great kid’s movies up through August.
Everyone knows that New York becomes even more amazing in the summer. Everyone is out on the streets to enjoy what the city has to offer during this amazing season. Major festivals held in different parts of the city and neighborhoods, in outdoor locations!
When we are with kids, there is nothing better than enjoying these festivals and going to these really cool programs! During the summer, Bryant Park – one of the most beautiful and entertaining city parks – brings the “HBO Summer Film Festival”. The offer outdoors screenings of famous movies from adventures, to romances and even cartoons.
The program runs until the end of August, every Monday at 5pm.
Location: Between 40th and 42nd Streets between 5th and 6th Avenues.
Governors Island hosts amazing events, and it’s a great place to spend the day with kids, since they always have music, art and other attractions spread though out the island!
Located less than 1km South of Manhattan and very close to Brooklyn, Governor’s Island is an island full of parks, picnic spots, biking, art installations around the island.
So, there are definitely countless fun activities to do with kids.
With events offering music, poetry and arts for kids, the island became a giant amusement park for all ages!”

Numero 28 Pizzeria
The last great tip is one of my favorite restaurants in town!
A perfect thing to do with kids is to take them to a pizza spot! Number 28 is not a preppy place, but I think that’s why it’s so cool!
Today, they have 4 addresses in New York and 2 in Brooklyn. They serve one of the best pizzas in town, considered by many to be the “authentic Neapolitan pizza!”
The ingredients are the best: super fresh, natural, no preservatives and some are even gluten-free. If you are not with that desire to eat pizza, as the kids probably are, they offer a great menu with pasta, salads and meat!
But…I suggest trying their pizza! Lastly, the environment is quite relaxed and the pizza, delicious!”
Location: 1431 First Avenue
