When I ask, in my interviews, what city they dream to visit, kids very often answer New York (parents too!). From a very young age children will immediately connect with the city which never sleeps. Skyscrapers, lights, blue sky, giant streets, yellow cabs; so many attractive things in the Big Apple…

Here’s what the children said coming back from our last trip there :

What NY has that London doesn’t…

Big blue chewing gums (that one can buy in delis at any hour of the day and night)

Yellow taxis

Giant video screens

Horse carriages


The naked Cow Boy (he really is naked with just his boots, underwear, hat and guitar)

Water towers on the building roofs

Hot dog carts

Dog walkers with lots and lots of dogs

Rubbish on the floor

Lots of skyscrapers

AC in cabs and in the subway

Water Parks with sprinkles

Crazy ice cream flavours (Birthday cake, superman, monster crunch, garbage can, etc)

“The Swarss” (FAO Schwarz)
