We have traveled with our kids since they were small, 4 or 5 years old. We've not really been to NY except for a 8 hour layover when we rented a car and drove around there for a bit. But we have traveled to many places where a lot of walking is necessary (small towns and large towns in Spain) and they never minded the walking if we found little interesting things to do. I can honestly say at that age, they really enjoyed all the sights and the things we did, and they still remember most of them to this day. If your kids are 4 or younger, take a stroller along so that they can be pushed if they do get tired. It will make the trip more peaceful!
