What do Saturday Night Live, Conan O’Brien, The Upright Citizens’ Brigade, and the balaclava-centric Delocated have in common? That would be the preternaturally talented writer and performer Ali Farahnakian, founder of the People’s Improv Theater. And what does he have to do with The New York Botanical Garden? Fanboyish name-dropping aside, it’s more about his daughters: the young pair counts the NYBG’s Everett Children’s Adventure Garden among their favorite fall destinations.
“We love exploring the lush greens and gorgeous mazes at the,” said Farahnakian. “The last time we visited, they had a fall project where the children got to identify leaves in the park and learn about the different trees they come from.”
Fall fun aside, Ali offers some handy ideas for parents looking to spend time with their kids out and about in NYC. Click through for a tidy list, courtesy of Time Out New York. —MN
