    By New York Family

    Family Media LLC is the parent company of New York Family Magazine, newyorkfamily.com and the host of the Baby Show Series. New York Family is a family lifestyle website and bi-monthly magazine focused on the interests, needs, and concerns of New York City parents. The print publication, which is free, is primarily distributed in Manhattan and Brooklyn (for now) at more than 1,000 locations–including schools, pediatricians offices, retail locations, children’s stores and apartment buildings. In print, the magazine reaches more than 100,000 parents throughout the city. Each issues is also featured as a digital edition on newyorkfamily.com, and sent to the thousands of families on our e-newsletter list. If you want to receive the free digital edition of the magazine, visit our sign-up page.

    Newyorkfamily.com is dedicated to the idea that New York City parents and parents-to-be should have a web community they can call their own, with fresh daily content, comprehensive guides and listings, selective tips, refreshing articles, and social groups where local parents can connect to share their questions and concerns and anything else they want to share. The key arteries leading to the website are our e-newsletters, which include a weekly newsletter with highlights of family events and activities around the city along with the highlights of our website that week, including shopping tips, parenting resources, and helpful or provocative articles and blog posts. If you want to receive our weekly e-newsletter, or any of our specialty newsletters on being a new parent, city shopping, cooking for families, and other subjects, visit our sign-up page.

    New York Family also sponsors a full calendar of events and activities for parents and children. At the heart of our live events menu is the Baby Show Series featuring the New York Baby Show, Chicago Baby Show and the LA Baby Show the country’s largest events for new and expectant parents. We also host the annual Blackboard Awards, which honors excellence in local education in every school system—public, independent, charter, and parochial. The Blackboard Awards honors schools and principals of excellence as well as great teachers.  For more information, and to nominate a school, principal, or teacher, visit blackboardawards.com.  New York Family is the organizers of the annual Camp Fairs series produced in conjunction with the American Camp Association of New York & New Jersey.  The Camp Fairs, which are free, afford parents and children a chance to explore a wide diversity of day camps, sleep away camps, and specialty camps.


    Through print, digital, social media and live events, we keep parents and children at the top of our mind and in our hearts–and we welcome your feedback and your questions.  Please write us at newyorkfamily@manhattanmedia.com.
