About New York Family

New York Family Media is the number one print and digital media platform for engaged parents in the New York City metro area and beyond.


We publish the largest circulated chain of parenting magazines in NYC. Our magazines are filled with informative content and family-focused lifestyle stories that speak to the interests, needs, and concerns of New York City parents. Our print editions include New York Family, Brooklyn Family, Queens Family, Bronx/Riverdale Family, and Westchester Family. Our magazines are free and available at more than 5,000 locations including schools, doctors’ offices, retail locations, children’s stores, and apartment buildings. Through our print magazines we reach more than 500,000 parents throughout the city. All of our issues are featured as a digital edition on our website and you can check out our archives here.


NewYorkFamily.com is the ultimate online guide for families living in or visiting New York City. Our website is dedicated to the idea that New York City parents and parents-to-be should have a web community they can call their own, with fresh and informative daily content, comprehensive guides and listings and tonnes of fun! We also send out e-newsletters each week where we round up our top stories, as well as clueing parents in on what’s on around the city.

Live Events

New York Family Media hosts a full calendar of events and activities for parents and children. At the heart of our live events are our Camp Fairs, produced in partnership with the American Camp Association of New York & New Jersey. The Camp Fairs, which are free, afford parents and children a chance to explore a wide diversity of day camps, sleepaway camps, and specialty camps.

We also host the annual Blackboard Awards, which honors excellence in local education in every school system—public, independent, charter, and parochial. The Blackboard Awards are an annual special event. For more information, and to nominate a school, principal, or teacher, visit blackboardawards.com.
