An advantage of living in New York is that the city has so much to offer. There’s a lot to see, a lot to do. But it’s fun to share the city with a group of friends, too. It’s an uncomfortable slice of life, that when you have children, you disappear from your single friends for a while.
Don’t get me wrong, I love my son. Liam is precocious, intelligent and great company. He’s a beautiful boy in a good mood all of the time, which puts me in a good mood, putting him in a better mood, and so on and so on. We have a great time together. But it’s nice to hang out with the guys, too. The NYC Dads Group provides those opportunities.

NYC Summer for Me and My Girl, Part 2

By Christopher Persley

New York City remains a truly wonderful place to raise a child, with my daughter and I continuing to have some wonderful adventures this summer (read about the first series of adventures here). The diverse experiences my daughter has experienced during her life to date are remarkable. Hopefully, there will be more to come ...

Cartoon Dads That Defy the ‘Doofus’ Stereotype

By Dave Lesser

When you’re a stay-at-home dad, you watch more children’s cartoons than you might prefer. It’s natural to start analyzing, some might say overanalyzing, them. Therefore, I could be wrong, but I’m pretty sure that Doc McStuffins and WordGirl both have stay-at-home dads.

My Day with 311

By Adam Gertsacov

On Friday, I got up really early to go into the city.  My brother was in from Colombia, so we had an early morning breakfast as is our wont. Breakfast at 8 am at the Grey Dog on University. Last time we were there, Alec Baldwin was there, but he didn't recognize me. Maybe this time.

I get up and drive to the subway. I've usually got great parking kharma, but today there are no spaces available.

Oh, what's this – an open spot? What's the sign say? “No Parking, 7AM - 4PM School Days.

Is today a school day? It's summer, but it's Friday. I'm not sure.

I call 311.

Andrews Grove is Back and Better

Editor’s Note: This is part of our ongoing series reviewing parks and playgrounds in the NYC area.This one is written by NYC Dads Group member Niel Vuolo.

The last time our family saw Andrews Grove park in Long Island City it had been freshly devastated by Superstorm Sandy. The large walnut trees that lined the back of the park had fallen down, turning the jungle gyms into piles of twisted metal.

But, now nearly three years later, Andrews Grove is back and a real gem in an area with a bunch of really nice parks.
