Things to do with NYC tweens

Bond with your pre-teen over museums, manicures, mountain biking and more.

You've cleared your schedule and finally found a few hours for quality time with your preteen. Just one glitch: She wants nothing to do with you. Somehow, overnight, you've become incredibly (a) uninteresting and (b) embarrassing to your darling child, and hanging out with you is not high on her list of priorities.

Don't let this deter you. There are loads of activities around the city so fun and cool by tweens' standards that they'll agree to your company. Plus, some goings-on require adult supervision, not to mention cash. So next time your kid gives you the Look of Death, surprise her with one of the following suggestions.
