  • Well, in NY city it is not a law to have ur child in a car seat in a tax cab as long as they are ober 25lbs, u could either ride with him on ur lap or in between u ..... personally i would take the car seat only because i know how taxi drivers drive in nyc i have lived her for 14 years and they arent the nicest drivers out there, but just be careful and safe. have a great trip. hope you enjoy it

  • we plan on visiting the parks, going on street tours, time square and eating out so I can't be dragging our 40 lb car seat everywhere.

  • put him on your lap important thing though is don't put the seat belt over both of you place it just on yourself and hold him. so you don't sqooshe him god forbid an accident, have fun i bet he love the subways and all the people take a leash and umbrella sroller i love NY

  • how about those carseat stroller combos, they're a bit pricey , but it does the job of both.
