Giveaway: the best of New York

While BronxMama is all for everything Bronx, its no secret that many of us still enjoy going to Manhattan; what us Bronxites refer to as downtown. With so many museums, restaurants, bars and other things to do across the water, we don’t have to travel far to enjoy a day or evening out. But with so many things to do and places to see we often find ourselves back in the same restaurant or park because, despite all of the places we’ve promised we were going to try, we were simply overwhelmed. The best of New York: in just 10 seconds is an awesome new guidebook that will be your new best friend.

Unlike those thick chunky guidebooks that end up never being used because you waste an entire day looking up what to do, the best of New York is like having an internet search engine in your purse; its quick, sufficient, and contains all of the information you need to get there. With places to eat (including an entire section devoted to kid friendly places!), bookstores, museums, and even a section with  events by month, this book appeals to both natives and visitors.

THREE LUCKY READERS can win their own copy of the best of New York by being the first three to leave a comment telling us about your child/children and things you like to do in Manhattan.
