Photoraph: Courtesy Zumper/BondW 104th St #5E Two-bedroom on Upper West Side, $2,450/month This elegant two-bedroom abode is situated on a quiet block on the Upper West Side, just south of Columbia University’s gorgeous campus. Pretty details like herringbone parquet floors and white base molding throughout, plus a marble-tiled bathroom, lend an air of luxury to the apartment. The place is flooded with natural sunlight thanks to plentiful windows, and the high-ceilinged living room (accented by a brick fireplace) will make the perfect spot for a big, comfy couch to plop down on for family movie nights. The B, C and 1 trains are easily accessible and with a Whole Foods (and wine shop!) just a short walk downtown on Columbus Ave, grocery shopping is stress-free. Don’t forget to take the kids for a fresh-air stroll around the mostly tourist-free section of Central Park nearby!

Exposed brick, brand-new hardwood floors and large windows make this newly renovated apartment feel welcoming despite its size, and with four playgrounds within walking distance, little ones will have lots of playtime out in the open.

Take the kids to toss a ball around on the Murry Bergtraum Softball Field or walk along the East River and snap some breathtaking waterfront photos with the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges on either side.

Two huge draws here are the shared outdoor space—great for barbecues or shooting hoops—and the bonus of having utilities included in rent each month. Let rambunctious youngsters run off some steam in the sprawling Rodney Park and playground nearby, and make sure to take advantage of summer Saturdays, when your crew can pop over to East River State Park for tasty bites from Smorgasburg on the waterfront.
