xp: NYC in May with 10 month old

I post over on DC Area babies and need your help.  Please recommend things to do in NYC with a 10 month old! 

We are taking the train in and staying in the Upper West Side.  Central Park with the zoo and the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theater are on my list (but is the latter going to be ok?  It doesn't give a length of the play...I want to get some theater in!).  Also considering a Circle Line harbor cruise, Metropolitan Museum of Art and the American Museum of Natural History (a mom with an 8 month old recommended those on a blog).  I also discovered South Street Seaport..

We will arrive mid afternoon on a Thursday and be leaving around noon on Sunday.  Planning on baby wearing, no stroller (I think...)

Also, places to eat!  We did not eat as exciting as we wanted to our last time in NYC and I really want to try dim sum but have no clue where to go.

When we travel, we like to go off the beaten path - so if you've got better than what I listed, I'd appreciate it!  A lot of what I found seems to be the traditional stuff.  

And, go!  Thanks!

  • I would try the Children's Museum, it's in the Upper West Side, and the American Museum of Natural History, also UWS (they might have their butterfly exhibit up that time of year, always a hit with kids). Are you coming in early May? If so, you might be in time to catch the Japanese Cherry Blossom Festival at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden. You said you're from DC, so I know you have lovely blossoms of your own, but the festival also includes Japanese food and cultural performances. (Although, be warned, it can be very crowded.  Get there early if possible). Kids just love being surrounded by the falling petals, and you'll get great pics too!
