Old Faithful is +/- 10 minutes (i.e. a 20 minute range)

Yes, and that was what the conversation was about.

yes twice, into the only part realy worth seeing is the grand canyon of Yellowstone. I know there's no way that someone going for the first time will pass up on seeing the geysers and hot springs. But there not worth the schlep especially with children. Exception being old faithful.

I'd like to see anyone with a soul - kid or adult - not being in utter and complete awe of the Hayden Valley. Of the boiling water pouring into the Firehole River. Of the insane Minerva Terraces. Of Grand Prismatic Spring. Of the countless wildlife at each and every turn.

If something the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone is one of the more boring places (relatively speaking, it's still not to be missed).

While it's definitely more amazing than anything I can find in Brooklyn I wouldn't say it was the highlight of our trip...

Don't get me wrong, the Grand Canyon IS amazing. There's just so many amazing sights in Yellowstone...

I love the out of doors and nature, but I'm not sure I see myself sitting in Yellowstone traffic for a week so that my kids can see some stuff that they don't even know enough to know is cool. I'd rather take them hiking in the Adirondacks or someat.

Edit: I'd rather take them hiking in yellowstone.  Did you know that something like 90% of visitors to the park don't get more than a mile off the pavement?

I guess you can spend a few hours in the Lower Geyser Basin (Old Faithful area) sitting around and waiting for geysers to erupt. Most geysers there are wheelchair accessible. Good luck keeping your kids entertained for the time it takes though...
I received today the book that you recommended: Yellowstone treasures, it has all my questions answered + many other info. Thanks

Did you get the latest version? Yellowstone is a very dynamic place, things change all the time (especially info regarding the thermal features etc.)

How is the bear safety in the park? from reading books and brochures like this one on the second page it sounds like a serious concern. Is it just like the Catskills or scarier?

If you are not planning on going off the road then you have nothing at all to worry about from bears.

If you plan on doing back country hiking just follow instructions and you'll be fine.
