What we're about

Meet other New York City dads -- stay-at-home dads, work-from-home dads, working dads, all involved fathers from in and around the NY Metro area (including Jersey City, Long Island and Westchester County) -- to socialize and interact with other guys who enjoy spending quality time with their kids.

Our primary goal is to form an inclusive and active community of involved dads so we can do activities together and take advantage of the wonderful resources that the city has to offer.

Organized meetup events are offered several times per week at a local park, playground, museum, playgym, children's venue, parent & me class, zoo, restaurant, or someone's playroom/lounge in their building.

Additionally, check out our web site to read about playgroup experiences, relevant news articles, upcoming events and happenings, research, work-life balance, tips for new and expectant dads, and more from a diverse group of dad voices: http://www.nycdadsgroup.com/

Expectant father? We now offer a practical & hands-on workshop for expectant fathers at our New Dad Boot Camp (http://citydadsgroup.com/nyc/where-dads-to-be-learn-from-other-dads/).

Finally, we have a $25/year suggested donation to join our Meetup group. This amount is less than the cost of a single kid's class in NYC, but collectively, the money will be used to reach out to more dads around the city, participate in more parent expos, & continue to use our voice to bring the privilege of active fatherhood to all dads. Contribute here: http://www.meetup.com/New-York-City-Dads-Meetup-Group/dues/

** Please note this group is strictly for Dads with kids (and dads-to-be). We want this group to be a comfortable place for Dads to learn and talk about anything parent related.

Jersey City Dads: Weekly Happy Hour

Zeppelin Hall

* Visit our NYC Dads Group website (http://citydadsgroup.com/nyc/) for more events, news and tales from the dad side! * For over 5 years a group of Jersey City Dads meet up at Zeppelin Hall for a weekly Happy Hour. We drink / eat and hang out while the kids do their thing! Please note we've now switched to Thursdays after a long run on Wednesdays. Zeppelin Hall has a massive back room which we (usually) have to ourselves every week, it is contained and gives the children lots of space to play in a space area. Come hang! We usually have 7-8 of us show on any given week, (not everyone uses Meetup). Sometimes more.

The Coolest Thing that ever happened to Math! Join us for a unique experience at the Museum of Mathematics. The National Museum of Mathematics (MoMath) is an award-winning museum that highlights the role of mathematics in illuminating the patterns and structures all around us. Its dynamic exhibits, gallery, and programs are designed to stimulate inquiry, spark curiosity, and reveal the wonders of mathematics. The Museum’s innovative exhibits will engage folks from 105- to 5-years-old — and even younger!

I've been several times with my 3 year-old and she absolutely loves all of their interactive, hands-on exhibits. We can hit the Madison Square Park Playground afterwards if it's not to frigid that day. Children 2 and under is FREE.
