History of NYMetroParents

Following the success of the first NYC parenting resource book, Big Apple Baby, Big Apple Parent was launched in 1985.

Filling the need parents had for hyper-local content, NYMetroParents created seven monthly magazines: Brooklyn Parent premiered in 1994; Queens Parent in 1995; Westchester Parent in 2000; Rockland Parent in 2007; Fairfield Parent (no longer published by Davler Media) in 2008; and Nassau Parent and Suffolk Parent in 2009. NYMetroParents merged with Long Island Parent magazine in 2012, and the latter two publications were rebranded as Long Island Parent - Nassau and Long Island Parent - Suffolk.

In 2013, a special Bergen County, NJ edition of Rockland Parent—Bergen•Rockland Parent—was also added into the mix.

After several years as the New York City affiliate for Disney's, NYMetroParents launched as its own parenting web resource in early 1999.

In October 2011, NYMetroParents launched its first-ever Special Parent magazine, a biannual publication dedicated to families of children with special needs. This magazine ceased publication in 2015, but NYMetroParents continues to produce high-quality special needs editorial content and directories in its regular monthly magazines and online.
