Night time with kids

I'll be in Midtown for 4 nights, Thursday to Monday, any ideas for family friendly things to do at night with 2 boys ages 17 and 11. Definitely doing a Broadway show, anything else recommended?

Thanks

The Metropolitan Museum is open late Fri, Sat. MOMA is open late Fri.

There a quite a few off Broadway shows popular with boys including Blue Man Group, STOMP and something new called iLuminate. All have discounts on

Broadwaybox.com

National Comedy theater is kid friendly.

Cafewha.com

Is popular for families.

The Staten island ferry is free and runs all night. Great nighttime views of the Statue and the city.

Most stores are open late. Movies...maybe some more ideas on discount on

If this trip is immediate, pick up a copy of the tourist magazines & have the boys figure out where they want to go. They are old enough to have input into your families travels. If you want lots of options head to either the Times Square Business District booth on 7th & 47th (I think I have that correct or at the NYC & Co main offices at 7th & 53rd. Lots of freebie tourist info.
