One reason we live in New York City (and pay crazy rents, take packed subways, and research early education options as if we're going for a Ph.D.) is to take advantage of all the cultural experiences it offers year-round. If one of your New Year's resolutions is to do more fun things with your kids, why not kick off 2018 by taking advantage of all the great places open on New Year's Day in the Big Apple?
We came up with seven resolutions for families and then found activities to fulfill each one—all at places open on January 1, 2018, in NYC. You can find more seasonal fun, including little kid and big kid ways to celebrate New Year's Eve, in our Holiday Guide, or in our 25 Free Things to Do in NYC with Kids on Winter Break.
All of us at Mommy Poppins wish you and your families a happy, healthy, and prosperous new year.
