Are you looking for an indoor winter play destination? There's no shortage of New York City stores where kids can play for free. You'll find options ranging from building Lego friends to playing the latest Nintendo games to rambunctious indoor playgrounds and mild-mannered train tables. Spend enough time playing, and your kids will be so exhausted by day's end, they might not even whine about leaving the Nintendo system behind (fingers crossed).
