I've got dogs. What are the best places in New York for being outdoors with pets?
Besides the obvious magnificent and world-famous Central Park, there are a wealth of great local parks where New York City residents can bring their favorite four-legged creatures for some fun in the sun. The famed Washington Square Park in Greenwich Village offers pooches a large dog run with water and tennis balls, as well as benches and some great people-watching for their owners. Dewitt Clinton Park in Hell's Kitchen is a quaint park with an abundance of plants and flowers, and a kiddie pool for the pups. Washington Heights Dog Park is another favorite local spot; a fairly large park with wood chips and plenty of shaded areas.

What areas of New York are safe for walking around at night?
New York City has such a wide variety of neighborhoods, and many of them are safer than one might expect. While it is always best to be alert at all times, some of the safest neighborhoods at night in the city include the Upper East Side, the Upper West Side, the West Village, also known as Greenwich Village, SoHo, and TriBeCa. The Financial District in downtown Manhattan is also a very safe neighborhood, and quiet at nighttime. The East Village and Lower East Side also tend to be safe at night, due to the bustling nightlife in these areas.
Is New York a good place for families?
It depends on what you're looking for. The schools run the gamut, and unless you're close to Central Park, it's going to be difficult to teach your children how to do things like ride a bike in the busy city streets of New York City. But, as far as safety is concerned, there's no need to fear the big city more than most other places in the United States; New York has an overall crime rate of 30 per 1,000 residents, making the crime rate here near the average for all cities and towns of all sizes in America, and one of the lowest in the nation for its size. With a diverse population, loads of museums, and no end to culture, New York is a great place to raise a family if you prefer the city to the country or suburbia--and you can afford the expense that comes along with it.
I'm relocating. What's the weather like in New York?
