Top Posts of 2007: NYC Services

As we've been turning everything over onto the new server, we've had the chance to look through the archives at all the old posts. It's amazing. I can't believe how much we covered in one year. This week we'll be posting our best posts from the whole year by category. Look forward to Best Food Posts, Best Activities Posts, Best Outings Posts, Best Travel Posts and today, Best of Services Posts.

We have an archive of hundreds of posts. To help you find the information you’re looking for faster, we’ve taken the top categories and sorted them here. Click on any link to see all the posts in that category. You can find links to ALL of our categories in the left sidebar.

What to Do...

Welcome to our new design

We've moved our site to a new, bigger, better and faster server and launched a whole new look. We're still working the kinks out in a couple of places. Sorry for the inconvenience as we update links. Once we get it all sorted we'll post about some of the new features.

We'd love to hear what you think of our new look. Rants or raves, please leave a comment below or email us.

Last minute Holiday Links Too Good to Skip

Again, a special Saturday post just because there has been so much great stuff to write about that I haven't been able to get to it all. So today I'm throwing together a couple of links I just can't let slip through the cracks.

Also, later this weekend we will be rolling out our new website design on our fancy new server. Hopefully this will solve both our yucky server issues and bring some great new features to the site. More on that later. Stay tuned.

Because of the server problems it looks like a couple of posts might have slipped through the cracks this week, including the announcement of our Scholastic Store Giveaway (Heather S). And also the Tracking Santa with Norad post did go out to feed readers, so check the site to see all of this weeks posts.

Last minute Christmas links:

You read about all the circuses in town, maybe you even went to go see one or two of them. Now it's your kid's turn. Paper Doll Militia at Bowery kids is having Circus Workshops this Sunday, December 23rd. Kids can learn to stilt walk, clown around and more. These workshops are for kids of all ages with the 2-4s sticking to the floor stuff and watch, while older kids get to try some aerial tricks.

Design Mom has been doing a series of posts about the sibling gift craft projects she is working on with her kids. I love this series so much. She's got 5 kids of all ages so there's something appropriate for everyone and the gifts are so great and the sentiment is just wonderful. DesignMom, can we have a kid crafting playdate?

McBrooklyn does a nice round-up of posts about seeing the lights and sights of Dyker Heights. (I seriously did not plan the rhyme in that sentence. It just kind of happened.) If you don't know, Dyker Heights is one of the neighborhoods in Brooklyn that goes over the top in their Christmas decorating. Houses, yes they have houses there, are covered in elaborate light displays with neighbors competing to out-do each other. Hop in your car or Zipcar and drive through the nabe for a great Christmas Eve family activity.

Fred Flare has a wonderful photo slideshow of this year's department store window displays as well as ones from previous years. If you never made it out to see the Christmas Department Store Windows with the kids, this is a good alternative. [via Goodyblog
