There are a lot of things for kids to do in the big city, but their parents often don't enjoy the crowds, expenses, and hassles that go with them. The Cool Parents Guide to All of New York goes beyond other guides by offering special highlights and suggestions to make your day-trips that much cooler--and only taking you to the places your family will actually like going. For this updated fourth edition, the Cool Parents have revisited old favorites, and found all the latest kid-friendly spots that parents will actually enjoy taking them to. Cool Parents also includes all the information that parents will want to know before they commit to an excursion--what time to go to beat the crowds, where to eat nearby, and where to find bathrooms all over the city.
Between them, Alfred Gingold and Helen Rogan have written nearly a dozen books, and countless magazine and web articles. Together, they are also the authors of Brooklyn's Best and New York's 50 Best Museums for Cool Parents and Their Kids. They live in Brooklyn with their son.
