My husband is going to an event in NYC (Harlem/ Columbia University area) and I'm debating whether me and my 2 1/2 yr old should go too. I think we want to stay in a more touristy area if we go. Is it crazy to take a toddler to NYC? She's at the stage where she doesn't like to be held back at all and has been throwing fits when I try to put her in the stroller or hold her hand, which obviously I would have to do in the city, so I am really nervous about it. Does anyone have tips on family-friendly hotels that aren't super expensive (anywhere near Central Park, Columbus Circle, Hells Kitchen, etc), things to do with a toddler there, or how to survive the city with a 2 yr old? Thanks!
