After a week off from school due to Hurricane Sandy, NYC public school students head back to the classroom today.
It's Election Day! Your little ones may not be able to vote in the next few presidential elections, but they can get an early start by learning about the voting process and casting their own ballot in kid-oriented events around the city.
Settle in for silent comedies accompanied by live music, as well as a mac and cheese dinner at the Brooklyn Farmacy and Soda Fountain Silent Film Series.
Your tot's favorite characters, from Belle to Brave's Merida, hit the rink in Disney on Ice Presents Rockin' Ever After at the Nassau Coliseum.
The Broadway incarnation of the 2003 Will Ferrell flick Elf, opening on Broadway today, will charm little ones with plenty of jokes, a jazzy score and a New York City set.
