Located at the very center of Midtown Manhattan, at The Knickerbocker, the magic of the city is all around. The perfect place to start and end your New York family adventures.

Times Square

Our central Midtown location on the corner of 42nd and Broadway makes it easy to explore the best of New York’s most family-friendly and iconic activities. Times Square is right at our front door, with its awe-inspiring billboards and kid favourites like the M&M Store. And you’re also close to the Broadway Theater District, where family crowd-pleasing musicals like The Lion King, Matilda, Wicked, and Aladdin dazzle the young and young at heart.

Bryant Park

We’re well known for our flashy Times Square location, but we love to help people discover our softer, greener side: Bryant Park. From summer days spent watching child-friendly Broadway musicals and kid-friendly movies on the lawn to iconic New York ice skating in the winter, this is the perfect oasis from the glitter of Times Square and the rest of the city.
