19 Summer Internships for New York City Teens

Having just gone through the college application process with my oldest son, I am more aware than ever that schools aren't just looking for good grades, great SAT scores, an outstanding essay, and a list of after-school activities, they also want to see some hands-on, real-world experience, preferably with a leadership component. That's where a summer internship can make your average, high-achieving, New York City teen really stand out from the rest of the equally high-achieving pack. 

Fortunately, because not all kids have the same interests, NYC summer internships come in a variety of flavors, paid and unpaid, regular and intermittent, educational and creative, with some also offering school and volunteer credit. The main thing summer internships in NYC tend to have in common is that the due dates to apply are usually before most teens have started thinking about their summer—or their college—plans.

To make sure your teens don’t miss out on any opportunities (and you don’t end up with an angsty child-shaped sloth on your couch for three months), check out our roundup on great internships and summer programs for teens in NYC—ranked in order of application deadlines.

Family-Friendly Bowling Alleys in New Jersey

If you’re looking for a fun, indoor activity that will appeal to the whole family, bowling may be right up your alley! (Sorry, we couldn't help ourselves.) Here in New Jersey, there are plenty of bowling facilities that offer year-round fun: small-town/neighborhood bowling alleys that offer traditional games with modern touches, such as automatic scoring and gutter bumpers; and newer, flashier bowling alleys that feature high-tech bells and whistles like interactive games, video walls, and glow ball. In addition, fun centers throughout the state often include bowling alongside laser tag and video arcades. And bowling alleys are an ideal spot for low-maintenance birthday parties, play dates, and weekend day trips.

Visiting Play: The New Indoor Spot at The Westchester Mall

We can all get a little stir-crazy in these cold winter months, but that doesn’t mean you always want to spend money on activities. Thankfully, The Westchester mall in White Plains has opened a brand-new play place that is a perfect spot to kill some time on a ho-hum day. The best part? It’s FREE!

Great Party Spots in Brooklyn for Baby's First Birthday

Let’s face it: Your baby's first birthday isn’t just about celebrating the start of toddlerhood. It’s about acknowledging the fact that you’re still standing after a whole year of parenting, even if you can’t remember the last time you slept!

At this age, the kids in attendance probably won't be running in circles (in fact, many of them might not be walking), so you don't need as much space as you will in a few years, and there’s a good chance that your guest list is heavy on the grown-ups. We've already rounded up great best first birthday spots in Manhattan, and now we've put together a list of top Brooklyn baby-friendly first birthday bash spots that adults and kids will appreciate.
