New York City by Night Skyline New York is home to numerous museums and entertainment centers, so travelers with children will certainly not be bored.

Hayden Planetarium is a no less interesting place, a visit to which would fascinate both children and adults.

A review of entertainments in New York would be incomplete without Coney Island Luna Park that is not only one of the most popular but also one of the oldest amusement parks in the United States. The opening of the park took place in the 20s of the previous century. Many rides have been working since the opening day and are kept in excellent condition. There is an amazing Ferris wheel in the park, as well as countless rides, many of which suit small children. Of course, there are roller coasters for teenagers and adults who seek thrill. There is even a special zone for fans of extreme – Scream Zone. From October to March, the ice skating rink is open in the park, so Coney Island Luna Park is interesting to visit regardless of the season.
Ground Zero Toy shops are one more peculiarity of New York. If you have children, it is simply impossible to leave the city without visiting at least one toy shop. Build-a-Bear Workshop is, without a doubt, one of the most unusual toy shops in the city. As one can guess from the name, this shop sells teddy bears. This is the right place to purchase exclusive handmade toys crafted exclusively from natural and eco-friendly materials. The shop hosts special master classes for children nearly every day. During these classes, children will learn how to do toys themselves.
