Watching a film on the big screen is the perfect way to spend a hot afternoon (the theaters tend to be cold, so your crew may even need to bring along a sweater!). Now playing for families: Monsters University and Despicable Me 2. Other kid-friendly flicks, including The Smurfs 2, open later this month.
There is nothing a little imagination can't fix—even the heat. Head to one of our favorite city libraries (including the Children's Center at 42nd Street) to experience escapism at its finest. Pick up a book and transport your crew to a wintry wonderland or an underwater abode.
