I love foreign grocery stores and all the better when they’re in my backyard! After visiting Sojo Spa in Edgewater, we headed to Mitsuwa Marketplace. Unfortunately not everything was open, since it was 7:00 pm. I especially wanted to visit Kai Creamery to get some funky ice cream but they were closed. We still had fun looking around.Continue reading “Mitsuwa With Kids: Edgewater”
Sojo Spa: After Covid
I went to Sojo Spa a few times before Covid, and finally got back this spring. Some was the same, but like all things with Covid, some was different. Here’s what to expect if you go to Sojo Spa after Covid!Continue reading “Sojo Spa: After Covid”

Review: New York Hall of Science
“Mommy! Are those real rocket ships?”
Rounding the corner into the driveway of the New York Hall of Science, my preschooler lost her mind. You can’t climb the rockets, but yes, they are very tall, very real, and clearly, very exciting.Continue reading “Review: New York Hall of Science”
Museum of Broadway With Kids
You know you’re going to a museum about Broadway when you have to buy your ticket through Telecharge, and you pay a $4 service charge plus tax for the privilege! That said, I’ve wanted to go since I heard this was opening. I brought a friend who grew up in the area and is a huge Broadway fan, with stories going back decades. Should you visit the Museum of Broadway with kids? Read on.
The Museum of Broadway opened in November 2022, and it is on 45th Street, just off Times Square. It’s across the street from RISE, another newcomer to the tourist scene.Continue reading “Museum of Broadway With Kids”
Edward Hopper at the Whitney With Kids
The Edward Hopper exhibit is only at the Whitney Museum in NYC through March 5, 2023. Don’t miss it! You still have a few weekends left. If you want to visit the Hopper at the Whitney with kids, here’s what you’ll find.
Don’t forget to pick up the lovely activity guide for kids to do at the exhibit. The book will keep them more interested, with opportunities to sketch and to look at the artwork with information aimed at their age level. We saw the booklets at the coat check, but I’m sure they have them elsewhere too.Continue reading “Edward Hopper at the Whitney With Kids”
The Pinocchio Exhibit at MOMA: The Making of Pinocchio
I admit to seeing the Pinocchio exhibit at MOMA before seeing the movie. I wish I did the reverse, but the exhibit really brought home how much work went into the movie-making and I think I watched it (in awe) the next night.Continue reading “The Pinocchio Exhibit at MOMA: The Making of Pinocchio”
Review: Is Kimberly Akimbo Good for Kids?
We’d been seeing the ads for a few months now, a Broadway musical set in high school with a woman way out of high school playing the lead. I’d heard good things, but didn’t know much about it. Got tickets without doing any more research. Is Kimberly Akimbo good for kids?Continue reading “Review: Is Kimberly Akimbo Good for Kids?“
Grounds for Sculpture at Night With Kids
We’ve been to the Grounds for Sculpture a few times during the day and loved it. It’s a huge place with a lot to see, and many fun and playful sculptures the kids will enjoy. The picture below was the first stop, and the projections on the sculpture kept changing, as did the lights on the trees behind on the right – which I think is the last of the exhibits – it’s a row of trees you walk through that’s pretty in the daytime too.Continue reading “Grounds for Sculpture at Night With Kids”
