Raising your children in NYC? The children who thrive here have parents who have made city living a lifestyle choice. These parents want to expose their kids to all aspects of the city, even if it means forfeiting a “classic” backyard, treehouses and riding your bike to a friend’s house. For these kids, the entire city is their backyard. It offers unlimited opportunities and enrichment on a world-class level. The city long ago figured out how to provide young families the resources they need in an organized, professional and safe manner. This includes child pick-up and take-homes door-to-door. Kids in the city will also grow up knowing more about street safety and being aware of their surroundings.
