    Your daughter will love the Christmas window displays at Macy's and Lord & Taylor. They are automated and really magical. You should look into what musicals are playing, some are very entertaining for children (i.e., Lion King, Shrek), and definitely take in the skating at Central Park and the Holiday Show with the Rockettes! Last time we were there in December there was a Christmas market on the southwest corner of Central Park that was a lot of fun too.

    For restaurants with live music you're near B.B. King Blues Club & Grill and I've heard good things about their Sunday gospel brunch and I know they now have a Saturday Beatles brunch - both should be family friendly. For something a little more upscale and downtown City Winery is really a special place for music and food but if you don't like the artist playing that night its not worth the trip, also check the age requirements.

    I take my 10-year-old daughter in New York City often. Last year, we went to see the matinee of "Annie" on Broadway in Times Square and she LOVED IT! A must that she also loves is a stop in Dylan's Candy Bar, and then having lunch and frozen hot chocolate at Serendipity 3. You'll be able to check out the store windows of Bloomingdale's and Macy's on 5th Avenue. The PlazaMake sure you walk into Central Park and visit the Central Park Zoo to see the polar bears and check out the Delacorte Clock (she may recognize it from "Madagascar.") A ride around the park in a horse-drawn carriage is always fun. You can also visit The Plaza hotel, home of "Eloise," and do a special tea. Seeing the Rockefeller Plaza Christmas tree and ice skating can get pretty crowded, but you can try Bryant Park, which isn't too far from Times Square.

    The best bet is American Museum of Natural History. A great destination for the young. I would also recmmend Central Park Zoo, as well as the Bronx Zoo. The Bronx Zoo is one of the best zoos in the USA.

    so many childrens activities in and around NYC! my first thought is give your daughter a camera for her visit. Central Park is beautiful for long walks and taking pictures. visit the American Museum of Natural History(Butterfly Conservatory), Bronx Zoo, New-York Historical Society DiMenna Childrens Museum all have hands-on activities. there is ice skating in Central Park and Bryant Park behind the New York Public Library which has a Sesame Street exhibit (even 10 yr olds get nostalgic.) do some holiday shopping at FAO Schwarz, include lunch and beauty day at American Girl Café or ride the indoor ferris wheel at Times Square Toys"R"Us/Babies"R"Us. Broadway theater is pricey but look for discounted offers on Matilda, Cinderella, Lion King. Also consider holiday favorites Nutcracker Ballet and Big Apple Circus at Lincoln Center or The Christmas Show at Radio City Music Hall. There is a fun Holiday Train show for children at New York Botanical Garden. For children specifically there are performances by The Vital Theatre Company Childrens Theater or The New Victory Theater and exhibits at Discovery Times Square. Of course all the major storefronts have wonderful displays but can be terribly crowded- sometimes a rainy day and good umbrella will spare you wait time or think about making it a late night walk on Fifth Avenue to see the Rockefeller Center tree, skaters and musical light show on Saks Fifth Avenue when crowds (might) be thinner. I highly recommend the Watson Adventures Scavenger Hunts for kids and families. A great way to explore the zoo or a museum. a great resource for more information: nycgo.com

    Ice skating in Rockefeller Center, Bryant Park, or Central Park is always fun. Bryant Park has a winter village with shops and little eateries around the rink.
