Catherine St #14

Two-bedroom in Two Bridges, $2,500/month

This newly-renovated apartment at the southern end of the Lower East Side and Chinatown is small, but tidy. Two well-lit bedrooms with spacious closets provide just the right amount of space for a couple to start their family. The kitchen is outfitted with stainless-steel appliances, including a microwave and dishwasher, plus modern cabinets and a white subway-tile backsplash. The bustling neighborhood can feel a bit claustrophobic at times, but a stroll along the East River toward South Street Seaport or visit to one of many small parks and playgrounds in the area make great escapes.

247 E 81st St #3E

Two-bedroom on the Upper East Side, $2,350/month

This massive two-bedroom abode sits in a prime location on the Upper East Side, ready to house you and your brood. Mom and Dad can claim one of the bright, queen-size bedrooms for themselves, while siblings bunk together in another down the hall. A handy breakfast bar gives the kids a fun spot to eat their cereal in the morning, and helps to save space in the compact kitchen with old-school, black-and-white tile floor. The 4, 5, 6 express stop at 86th Street makes commutes easy and the new Whole Foods on Third Ave will be a godsend for big grocery shopping trips.

Amsterdam Ave and W 85th St #9J

Two-bedroom on the Upper West Side, $2,495/month

One family will hit the jackpot with this roomy pad on the Upper West Side. Shiny hardwood floors stretch across the lengthy apartment, with French doors separating the high-ceiling bedrooms. Large closets, a pristine, white bathroom and kitchen with plenty of storage make it easy to keep your family organized at home, and there's no need to fret about getting around town thanks to easy access to the 1, B and C trains at the nearby 86th St stations. The scenic section of Central Park surrounding the reservoir is just a stone's throw away, not to mention the Museum of Natural History for when the kids need a dino fix.

E 78th St #24

Two-bedroom on the Upper East Side, $2,600/month

This classic UES apartment is an amazing fit for you and the little ones! It's situated less than three blocks from John Jay Park on the East River, and has tons of kitchen counter space to whip up something delicious for family dinners. The kids will love kicking back in the huge living room for movie nights, but before that they'll need to make use of the New York Public Library branch on 79th St to get their homework done! The 77th St 6 train is close by, and crosstown travel is a cinch thanks to the 79th Street bus that cuts right through the park.

5 W 43rd St #5E

Two-bedroom in Midtown East, $2,550/month

Bryant Park is virtually the backyard of this two-bedroom in Midtown East. Create a dining and living space alongside the kitchen and set the kids up in the far bedroom to ensure they'll have quiet at bedtime. With Mom and Dad's bedroom in the middle, it's easy to listen for fussy little ones. Though the railroad layout can be inconvenient at times, it's a small price to pay for the stellar rooftop views—did we mention this unit is on the top floor? Don't forget about the convenient location either. Over 8 subway lines are within walking distance of your front door.
