Deciding on where to raise children? Well, we have the answer for you: New York City. Sure, our counterparts in the suburbs may have more space, but we use Central Park as our backyard, spend rainy weekends at the American Museum of Natural History, and walk by iconic buildings (Grand Central, the Empire State Building) on a daily basis. Below, you'll find 25 reasons why NYC is the best place in the world to raise kids. Plus: Notable city moms and dads, including Padma LakshmiNigel Barker, Cat Greenleaf and Amy Sohn, sound off on why they chose to raise kids in the city. Then, don't forget to tweet us at @timeoutkids to let us know why you think NYC is the best city in the world for families.
