What is Citykin?
Cities. They’re big. Bustling. Busy. Loud. Full of offices, industries, art and commerce. But also home to lots of people who buck against the expected move to the suburbs and choose to raise their families in these incredible places. Some may call these parents crazy, we prefer the term warrior-like. Ok, and a little crazy too.
Citykin was created to talk to these parents with a simple focus on providing a great mix of content that both celebrates raising kids in the city, alongside practical (How do you navigate the subway as a new parent ), inspirational (How do parents in Dublin do it) and provocative (Are we selfish parents for not moving to greener pastures?). Parenting in the city throws up unique challenges and much of the content online can be at odds with city living, where large minivans, huge kitchens and sprawling backyards are the minority.
Citykin was born in Brooklyn, New York, created by four parents who felt that there just wasn’t anything out there that spoke directly to city parents. Where was our tribe of other parents ruining their kid’s childhood by depriving them of a giant backyard swingset?
Well we’ve found them and they are pretty awesome and we’re so glad you stopped by too. Welcome to this crazy city community where you need a certain level of tenacity, balls, determination, grit and a sense of humor to deal with raising a family in the city.
We are Citykin.
