26 May A GUIDE TO THE NEW YORK HALL OF SCIENCE
ARE YOUR PREPARED FOR YOUR NYHS EXPERIENCE?
As summer comes on strong, many of us are looking for ways to keep our kids entertained while still encouraging sharp minds and learning during their break from school. If you’re planning a trip to the Big Apple this summer, you have a ton of options for keeping your kids both occupied and stimulated, from Museum of Natural History to the fabulous New York Hall of Science.
Whether you want to go out on a week afternoon or spend the whole day Saturday exploring the Hall of Science, you should make the occasion special by booking chauffeured car service to handle your commute. Not only will you be relieved of the responsibility of driving and parking, you’ll also get to relax at the end of the day and spend the commutes talking with your children instead of stressing out over the crowds. Once you have your car, it’s important to pick a great restaurant to keep the fun rolling at meal time and to know which exhibits you’d like to see while you’re there. We’ve outlined a few of our favorites to help you get started.
Considered by many New Yorkers to be one of the finest Italian restaurants in Queens, Park Side is the perfect destination for dinner after your visit to the Hall of Science. With an impressive menu full of traditional Italian favorites, including dishes that your kids are sure to love, there’s no way to go wrong by stopping in on Corona Avenue after a day of science and learning.

Located conveniently off of Grand Central Parkway, Rainhas carries the motto “Eat, Drink, Laugh, Enjoy,” which is perfect for families looking to enjoy a delicious Brazilian meal after a day together at the Hall of Science. Rainhas serves USDA Prime Grade Picanha, the national meat cut of Brazil, and they also offer a slew of special cocktails, beers, and wines. Since you have a chauffeur to take care of your commute, you won’t have to avoid the drink menu.
