I was so happy when I came across this amazing list. As we know it can be expensive to take the kids out for the day.
But, Long Island familes sometimes need to get into our wonderful city and see the arts. There is so much to see and do in NYC.
OHHHHH how I love New York!
This list is fantastic and I came across it on NYC Arts.org webpage and I just had to share the information with all my fellow Momees.
