Manhattan Ave #3B

Two-bedroom on the Upper West Side, $2,450/month

This Upper West Side pad provides just the right amount of space for a couple starting a family. Mom and Dad can stake out the larger bedroom, while the smaller can be transformed into a tidy nursery. The living space is cozy and clean, making it the ideal for tired parents to kick back for a movie night once the little one is in bed. You'll probably want to order delivery too—the kitchen is a bit old-school with its electric coil stove. Luckily, this location is ideal for getting out and mingling with other members of the stroller brigade. Central Park is just down the block, and the B, C station at Cathedral Pkwy is a short walk from the door.

McGuinness Blvd #2

Two-bedroom in Greenpoint, $2,100/month

One block from the Greenpoint Av G train stop, this sunny two-bedroom provides a quiet respite for your brood. Sleek hardwood floors run throughout the unit and the open-format kitchen is equipped with modern touches and stainless steel appliances. Youngsters can munch their cereal at the breakfast bar while Mom or Dad whip up school lunches, and the fenced-in, shared backyard is ideal for unwinding as a family at the end of the day—it even has a few patches of grass! Hop on the subway just one stop to meet up with the kids' Pre-k pals and wander around beloved McCarren Park.
