Child friendly rating

To be honest i wasn't too sure at first. Three kids in one of the worlds busiest cities, but my children absolutely loved it. The New Yorkers are generally really fond of the kids and the hotels are beyond accommodating. There's also lots for the children to do out and about in the city.

We give New York a rating of 9/10
