The NYMetroParents blogroll features the best blogs in the parenting world, from New York and beyond. Here's a closer look at why we love these mom bloggers and dad bloggers and how they're shaping the web for parenting today.
Blogging From: New York, New York
If you’re a mommy living in Manhattan, chances are you’ve heard of ManhattanMom.com, a site that offers reviews for nearly everything, from toys to restaurants and events, staying true to their tagline: "Mom-Tested & Approved." The popular site also offers tips and deals for bargain-hunting parents.
Editorial director Gwynn Cassidy and her team, including a designated Daddy Editor, offer a platform for parents to also review for restaurants, stores, and salons, and products like strollers, children's books, toys, and more. When rating a venue, readers are asked to rate the place out of 5 stars and are asked the quality of child amenities, if it featured any.
For parents who are on the go, the homepage provides quick links to MTA sites for traffic, bus and subway schedules, and escalator operations. Also, a school admission timeline offers advice on navigating the New York City school system while a tab for “Freebies, Deals & Stuff to Win” offers readers the chance to win toys, books, and other products. -- Kimberly Mollo
