Amy Poehler misses New York City and thinks it’s a great place to raise children.
The Parks and Recreation actress – who now lives in L.A. with Archie, 4, and Abel, nearly 3, – said in her interview with Time Out New York, “I think it’s the best city to live in with kids. My kids learn more on the walk from our house to the deli than they do driving around all day. They see so many different people, they ask so many questions, they interact with so many different types of people. They’re so stimulated and energized.”
Asked about her favorite parks she replied, “Because I have little boys, I tend to like the local parks that are near my house—a lot of the West Village parks, because they’re kid-friendly. It’s a great place to bring them. The little hideaway places that you stumble onto as you live in the city are more my style, because I’m more of a downtown gal. They’re not perfect, and that’s why they’re great.”
The former Saturday Night Live star separated from Will Arnett last September. She’s currently dating Nick Kroll.
