NYC with kids in winter

We're planning a trip from Melbourne, Australia to the USA for about 5 weeks around Xmas - New years 05/06. Currently we are thinking of trying to rent a furnished apartment (probably 3 br) and staying for approximately 2 weeks. Our children are 2,6 and 9 and we will have my wife's mother with us. Can anybody offer advice on the best companies to use for booking furnished apartments at that time of year, best location to stay and whether this is too long a time for the kids in NYC at this busy time of year? Any other advice to make this trip a success would be great - we really want the kids to experience everything NYC has to offer (even at a relatively young age)

We returned recently having taken a 6 and 9 year old. they were fascinated by the American Musuem of Natural History, especially the brilliant dinosaur exhibit. We were there about 3/4 hours. Great shops there as well. The bus tours really interested them as well. They were thrilled to go shopping and get nike/reebok. they were just so much cheaper there.

Not too sure how a 2 year old will take it all though. If they are acustomed to travel you should have no problem.

The Intrepid kept them entertained as well, ship, sub and concord. It will be a visit they will never forget.
