Following the success of the first NYC parenting resource book, "Big Apple Baby," BIG APPLE PARENT was launched in 1985; it is now the largest publisher of regional parenting content on the East Coast.
Filling the need parents had for hyper-local content, NYMetroParents created seven monthly magazines: BROOKLYN PARENT premiered in 1994; QUEENS PARENT in 1995; WESTCHESTER PARENT in 2000; ROCKLAND PARENT in 2007; FAIRFIELD PARENT IN 2008; and NASSAU PARENT & SUFFOLK PARENT in 2009. NYMetroParents merged with Long Island Parent magazine in 2012, and the latter two publications were rebranded as LONG ISLAND PARENT - NASSAU EDITION and LONG ISLAND PARENT - SUFFOLK EDITION.
In October 2011, NYMetroParents launched its first-ever SPECIAL PARENT magazine, a biannual publication dedicated to families of children with special needs.
Winners of numerous accolades for editorial excellence (including 10 prestigious awards from the Parenting Media Association in 2011), these magazines deliver parenting news and information to a dynamic audience of more than 500,000 parents with the sophistication and means to raise families in affluent greater New York. We are THE parent-targeted market!
