Two-bedroom in Hell’s Kitchen, $2,600/month
This bright abode is convertible to fit two bedrooms (we say take the master and give your little ones space in that railroad-style middle area). There’s plenty of closet space, plus a medium-sized kitchen with white cabinetry and stainless steel appliances. The only thing we can’t see from the photos is an oven…we’ll just hope that’s hiding behind the fridge.
Two-bedroom in Park Slope, $2,450/month
Any family would be happy to live in lovely Park Slope! This particular apartment has gorgeous wood flooring, an absolutely massive living room (you could have an area for couches and a home office!), sunny bedroom space and it’s just half a block from Prospect Park.
Two-bedroom on the UES, $2,549
Plan on staying in for family dinners, because this cool kitchen is enough to make anyone want to hang out at home! There’s plenty of room for a big kitchen table, plus there’s a stainless steel gas stove, fridge and dishwasher. If you DO want to explore some awesome local cuisine, you can catch the 77nd St 6 just two blocks away for easy travel around the city.
