New York Family is all about YOUR family...

New York Family is a digital platform and a monthly free family lifestyle magazine focused on the interests, needs, and concerns of New York City parents. Our glossy magazine is distributed in Manhattan at more than 1,000 locations–including schools, pediatricians’ offices, retail stores and apartment buildings. Our magazine reaches more than 100,000 parents throughout the city. Our website (www.newyorkfamily.com) is dedicated to the idea that New York City parents and parents-to-be should have a web community they can call their own, with fresh daily content, comprehensive guides and listings, helpful tips and articles. We also send out weekly newsletters filling families in on all the cool happenings around town! Sign up to receive our newsletter here: https://www.newyorkfamily.com/newsletter-sign-up/ New York Family also sponsors a full calendar of events and activities for parents and children, from education seminars to family parties with live bands and every manner of athletic and artistic activities for children. At the heart of our live events menu are two popular programs that that contribute greatly to family life in the city. One is the Blackboard Awards, which honors excellence in local education in every school system—public, independent, charter, and parochial. In separate ceremonies and resource guides, the Blackboard Awards honors schools and principals of excellence as well as great teachers. For more information, and to recommend a school, principal, or teacher, visit www.blackboardawards.com. Our other mega-live event is the annual series of Camp Fairs we produce in conjunction with the American Camp Association of New York. Our Camp Fairs, which are free, afford parents and children a chance to explore the wide diversity of day camps, sleep away camps, and specialty camps out there.
