So my family spent 4 nights in New York City in July. We had a blast!
We traveled so lightly. Meaning, we didn’t transport at least 12 articles of baggage. We didn’t even take the car seats.
We needed to take a taxi 2x though. The law in NY does not require kids to be in car seats in taxis. Convenient. And scary. What kind of mother would I be if I didn’t have the kiddos strapped in? A nervous but surprisingly calm one. Our two trips the kids say on our laps with our arms around them. They had a blast. Eek! We took the subway the rest of the time. Trains! Noise! Heat! It was exciting and overwhelming for the kids. But EVERY time we boarded the train a person gave up their seat for us.Young and even old people. How nice! (Did we look that frazzled with out strollers?) I was prepared to encounter rudeness but found courtesy instead. Bravo Nueva York!
