From a 13 Year Old Girl's Point of View: Tips for Parents, Hosts, VisitorsIf you have a 13, 14 or 15 year-old girl in your life, and want to enjoy some family-friendly fun in Brooklyn, here are some great ideas for outings, destinations and things to do.
About this listThe following list, which barely scrapes the surface of the many things to do in Brooklyn, was developed with the assistance of Rachel, a 13-year-old Bostonian who visited Brooklyn for one weekend in the summer of 2012. She visited, and then rated, a half-dozen different Brooklyn experiences, from flea markets to ice cream parlors, on such factors as "fun," "affordable," "once in a lifetime," "come back with friends," and of course that indefinable "Rachel factor."
While of course not all teenage girls are the same — viva la difference!— the perspective of a young person in this age cohort offers an interesting angle on typical adult considerations about what constitutes fun.
