If you are going to NYC (especially for the first time) I would thoroughly recommend this as a something to take along with you for your child/children. My daughter and I went for the first time for both of us in April and the cards were a great way of involving her in the planning of the day and as an aid to remind her of where we'd been and what we'd seen in our whirlwind trip around the city!

The cards are clear, in simple English (so probably good for early solo readers). Each card covers an area or a particular sightseeing spot (there are three for the Metropolitan Museum and one for the Empire State Building) and, usefully for parents, they include playgrounds - good if the little ones need to let off steam after being dragged around a museum!

What I like most about this series is that they seem to genuinely understand what would appeal to little ones and, even for a 9-year-old, they were a very good resource for planning the day.

On a recent trip to New York with the kids we let them guide us using these cards. Involving the kids in the decision making made a massive difference and they ended up looking forward to sightseeing.

excellent walking tours if you're with children 1 Jun. 2007
By audrey - Published on
Format: Cards Verified Purchase
Our family recently returned from a visit to Manhattan. We used 5 or 6 texts as well as this boxed set of walking tours. The set consists of 50 3-3/4 by 5-1/2 inch heavy stock cards and a folding master card that shows all the walks in the context of a five bouroughs map.

There are 3 walks in Central Park, 6 Midtown, none north of the park and 20 south of the Flatiron Building. Four walks cover The Bronx, one is in Queens and 4 in Brooklyn. Each walk card shows a moderately useful map on one side, which does not show all streets but does list subway and bus information as well as web and phone information; on the other side the text points out historic buildings, book stores and museums.

It was very convenient to grab a few cards as we went out the door. There is also information about kid-friendly restaurants, which was very helpful. We also had the City Walks set (for adults) and while there was overlap in areas covered, there was not much in content, which made this worthwhile.

I would definitely buy this set again.

A truly magical collection of outings! 27 Feb. 2007
By Miriam Patterson - Published on
Format: Cards
This is THE most wonderful collection of romps around New York City that I've ever encountered. The writing is engaging and witty, the illustrations are magical.. and the walking tours that my daughter and I have done so far were a perfect mix of NYC standard sights and quirky, unexpected things that you've never even heard about. My daughter loves the set, and I myself would highly recommend it for anyone with curious and active kids who like getting out and about!

Nice Resource 24 Feb. 2008
By Jennifer Donovan - Published on
Format: Cards
This is a great resource for either a New Yorker or someone who is planning a visit with kids. These cards are portable and contain a good bit of information, including phone numbers, subway routes, and websites. Each card focuses on one destination, but mentions other attractions near the "walk," which makes it easy to plan out your excursion.

Good ideas but unclear instruction 11 Dec. 2008
By sjrk - Published on
Format: Cards Verified Purchase
These cards are handy and provided some good ideas but the instructions are not super clear. We tried the Brooklyn Bridge card which has you cross the bridge on foot (great walk!) but then instructs you to places to eat in Brooklyn and the directions were very vague and almost misleading. We have a five year old and an eight year old and, after walking the bridge, were in no mood to get lost which is exactly what we did until a police officer helped us out. These are so small they can easily slip into a a purse. We picked a few out and left them in my purse to reference when we had spare time.

Short but fun ideas 8 Jun. 2013
By Mom4er - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The card set I got was used but in good condition. I like the idea and actually first got the city walks for kids London version. This set is good but the walks aren't quite as inclusive of multiple sites to see-many of the walks have only one or two stops so if you are planning for day trips with kids you have to string them together quite a bit. The London walks had more cards that were inclusive of kid activities that took almost half a day each with snack or lunch ideas also. London is also larger so maybe that is why there were longer walks. The NYC set I think could be more fun if it had activities strung through for a half day or so with directions to get from site to site. That was harder for me to navigate and took quite a bit of planning the days prior to our trip so that I could keep a toddler busy all day while daddy worked. Overall a good idea and a nice starting point for planning a trip. Look out because post 911 and post hurricane sandy a good bit has changed in the city and also always check museum websites ahead because I found some had moved. Also, the tram to roosevelt island wasn't included on a walk I saw and we did that (leaves from 2nd and 60th) and my baby loved the ride and seeing the island. A great use of $2.50!!
