Two-bedroom on the Upper East Side, $2,550/month
This cute apartment offers two evenly-sized bedrooms and a teeny tiny kitchen! We love the light-soaked living room (you can easily fit a desk, couch/TV area and a play corner for the little ones). On weekends, check out Carl Schurz Park or John Jay Park at the East River.
Two-bedroom Astoria, $2,500/month
Two huge bedrooms make this apartment a great fit for families! You’ll find cool black and white hallway tiling, plenty of closet space, a separate dining area (yes, your big kitchen table will fit!) and a separate living room area that’s great for spending quality time with the kids.
Two-bedroom in Prospect Heights, $2,200/month
There’s plenty of space for a growing family in this cool Prospect Heights abode. The kitchen is also massive…just imagine the epic family dinners! Other cool amenities include hardwood flooring, prime location on a tree-lined street and easy access to Stroud and Underhill Playgrounds nearby.
Two-bedroom in Greenpoint, $2,300/month
While the pink walls may not be to everyone’s taste, there’s no doubt this cool Greenpoint apartment offers great space and great natural light. We also think the fireplace is pretty neat, too. Grab the G at Greenpoint Ave for easy travel around the city with the family, and be sure to visit McCarren Park if you’re feeling up for an ambitious stroll!
