NYC Babies Can Now Experience The Metropolitan Opera with BambinO

NYC Babies Can Now Experience The Metropolitan Opera with BambinO

New York City kids really have it made; they get the latest and greatest in food, music, museums, and now opera. Many NYC parents (me included) believe it's never too early to get you little ones some culture. That's why I'm really loving BambinO at The Metropolitan Opera. This "musical theater adventured" is geared toward babies 6-18 months old and features tons of music and interactive activities. The series of six performances start Monday April 30 and last 40 mins. Not to mention, they are completely free!

Celebrate Car Free Earth Day in New York City

Celebrate Car Free Earth Day in New York City

New York City is definitely a walking town, but that doesn't mean the traffic isn't brutal. In fact, traffic congestion is so bad that the City is proposing a congestion tax, that would charge drivers traveling in highly congested areas during the times of day when traffic is at its heaviest. To off set this and to encourage walking and public transportation, NYC will hold the third annual Car Free Earth Day event on Saturday April 21, 2018, the day before Earth Day. From Times Square to Union Square, Broadway will be closed to cars and only available to pedestrians and cyclists.
