Instagram-Worthy Moments from Kids' Activities & Programs in Manhattan

Get a peek at some programs and services for kids in New York City!

We asked some of our Manhattan partners to provide the most Instagram-worthy photos of the activities that go on in their walls. We posted the results to our Instagram stories (@NYMetroParents) and are publishing them below. What follows are beautiful, dynamic photos of after-school activities, performances, health care professionals, schools, summer camps, and other child-focused businesses throughout Manhattan, including services for children in Tribeca, the Lower East Side, Greenwich Village, Upper East Side, Upper West Side, the Bronx, Harlem, Kips Bay, Murray Hill, Gramercy, Chelsea, Nolita, and Midtown.
