Books of Wonder - a children's bookstore
April 25, 2016
As convenient as Amazon and other similar websites can be, leisurely browsing a good bookstore is a thrill all its own. Given how prominently children's books feature in the rhythm of my days since my daughter's birth, having the opportunity to refresh and supplement our growing library is one I take advantage of whenever possible. Books of Wonder, ...

You can’t help but LOVE New York City if you take an early evening stroll on The Highline. Not only is the people-watching fantastic but the whole experience will just make you feel cool.

The Limelight Marketplace
May 25, 2010
In the 1980s, early '90s, The Limelight was perhaps the most popular nightclub in New York City. Known for its wild parties, weekly drug busts, and all around freakiness, the club closed its doors long ago but the space itself has recently been transformed and re-opened as a...gasp...mini-mall. The old cathedral space is now The ...

Kidding Around Toys
March 6, 2010
While I would really love for my kids to play with handcrafted, eco-friendly and artistically stunning toys, I also know full well that I might as well just set a pile of money on fire. The beautiful wooden farm house with hand painted animals is coated in a layer of dust. The hand-sewn finger puppet ...

Pop Burger
October 28, 2009
As mentioned in an earlier post, I am not a huge fan of eating out with young kids. It’s not good for the digestion. But then again, there is Pop Burger. This unassuming and very hip burger joint in the trendy Meatpacking district is actually one of my favorite super duper secret places to grab ...

Chelsea Market
September 30, 2009
I really try to avoid taking my twins out to eat. It is nothing short of torture for me. Seriously….it’s like the minute they see that dilapidated cup of crayons and sad coloring placemat coming at them they start to make a scene. Chelsea Market, on the other hand, is now a destination of mine ...
