The centerpiece of this home is a charming fireplace with rustic brick above the mantle—a spot to showcase cute photos of the little ones. With lots of natural light, this cozy room is bound to be your gang’s go-to for curling up with a book. The top-notch kitchen is equipped with tons of cabinet space and stainless-steel appliances, including a full-size oven, so you’ll be ready to feed an army. On top of it all, the location beside the Williamsburg Bridge puts you just a few blocks from the J, M, Z or L trains as well as East River State Park for family strolls and pit-stops at Smorgasburg.

Elegant French doors, sleek hardwood floors and touches of exposed brick class up the space, and with help from high ceilings and large windows, you’ll never feel claustrophobic. Mom and Dad will dig the massive closets lining the hallway (perfect for stashing toys and other clutter), and a handy window between the kitchen and living room that helps with supervision of the kiddos. The main attraction of this hood is all the family entertainment nearby. Romp around on playgrounds, get in on fun workshops at 92Y and take in cool exhibits on Museum Mile—The Met, Guggenheim and Jewish Museum are all within walking distance.

Though there’s no living room, parents with a new baby will find the king-size bedrooms plenty spacious—each with a convenient closet. Transform one room into a calming escape for Mom and Dad and the other into a cozy nursery for your bundle of joy. Despite its old-school style, the kitchen offers roomy cabinets and space for a table where you’ll convene for family dinners. Thinking of bringing a four-legged friend into the family? Cats and dogs are allowed in the building with approval from the landlord. Hit up scenic McGolrick and McCarren Parks when the pet needs a walk or the weather calls for a family picnic.

The two-bedroom consists of a spacious living room with a faux fireplace, plus a new bathroom with skylight and refinished floors throughout. With a few space-saving tricks (hello, Ikea catalog!), the two well-lit, narrow bedrooms are destined to become adorable nooks to relax in. You’ll be posted up on a quiet, tree-lined block in Greenpoint, almost equidistant from the G train at Nassau Ave and the L at Graham Ave. Don’t fret about the hike to the subway though—you’ll have easy access to the neighborhood’s stellar green spaces, including picturesque McGolrick Park and bustling McCarren Park, which regularly hosts family programming.
