20 St Marks Pl #3L

Two-bedroom in East Village, $2,500/month

Apartments this spacious are hard to come by in East Village, which is why this centrally located gem made us do a double take. The wide-open layout of the kitchen and living room gives Mom and Dad the freedom to cook dinner while the kids play or do homework at the table. Tiled kitchen floors transition to shiny hardwood, breaking up the common space but maintaining the airy feel. Overhead lighting, a wall-mounted AC unit and washer/dryer in the basement sweeten the deal, but the location—walking distance from Washington Square and Tompkins Square Parks—is the real draw of this family-friendly pad.

Metropolitan Ave #2RR

Two-bedroom in Williamsburg, $2,600/month

Families searching for a spot to settle in Brooklyn should look no further than this Billyburg pad. The adjoined living room and kitchen is flanked by sets of French doors, leading to a marvelously sunny bedroom on either end. Parents and youngsters will love having their own space in the apartment, but everyone will want to convene in the large common room and tricked-out kitchen. Modern finishes include sleek metal hardware on the cabinets, a dishwasher and built-in microwave—sometimes our idea of cooking dinner is nuking some Trader Joe's chicken nuggets, okay? Did we mention there's no broker's fee?
