Settle into this pristine abode on a peaceful block of the Upper East Side where families are free to make the space their own. Clean, white walls, cabinets and appliances present a blank canvas for parents with a creative vision, and the railroad setup lets makes it easy to keep a watchful eye on tots playing in any of the king-size rooms. Carl Schurz Park is just a short walk away—the perfect spot to take the family pooch to play with other dogs or track down kid-friendly events in the warm-weather months.

This hip Brooklyn neighborhood is the perfect spot for a small family to post up with the little ones.

You can't beat the private deck access for grilling on warm nights, and if you need to get some fresh air, head to nearby McCarren Park for a family picnic or dip in the public pool.

This neat two-bedroom sits in a quiet section of uptown Manhattan, right near the 77 St 6-train station. Parquet flooring in the living room and bedrooms, plus tile in the kitchen make cleaning up after messy toddlers a breeze. Standing radiators in each bedroom ensure that everyone stays cozy in chilly weather, but windows throughout the apartment keep a cool breeze coming in on hot summer days. When it's time for an adventure, head out to see the Alice in Wonderland statue or sail boats on the Conservatory Water in the neighborhood's nearest section of Central Park.
