Writing our family guides, we always try to put the child at the centre of our planning. Not so easy in New York, you might think, a city much better suited to teenagers and above. But hang on.. what about E.B White's classic, Stuart Little and his agreeable adventures in Manhattan. Head for the east side of Central Park and Conservatory Water, scene of the brave little mouse's adventurous boat race. Every Saturday morning at 10am, children come here to race their boats against the Fifth Avenue skyline. Join in by renting a boat from the little boat house or watch from the cafe at Kerbs Boathouse. The water is open till the end of October for boating,and is turned into a magical ice skating pond in winter. Red-tailed hawks soar in the skies high above. A little bit of wild in the big apple.
