When people think about moving to New York, they often think about the city’s culture, nightlife, casinos, poker en ligne, and the infamous “city that never sleeps.” However, when it comes to having a family, Brooklyn is a great place to live. There are plenty of parks and homes that are spacious enough for everyone.

Getting to know the right neighborhood for your family can be challenging, but once you find the one that’s right for you and your family, the hunt for a new home can be easier.

Park Slope

One of the most obvious choices is Park Slope. This neighborhood is known for its tree-lined streets, brownstones, and access to Prospect Park. Families enjoy the various kid-friendly businesses and culture the area offers.

Park Slope is known for its variety of playgrounds as well as a great variety of block parties. This area is also famous for its St. Patrick’s Day and Halloween parades.

In Park Slope, public schools are highly regarded for their student performance. In addition, there are several private schools.

Brooklyn Heights

Brooklyn Heights is well-known for its charming historic buildings and distinct neighborhood feel. This area is also great for families due to its proximity to Brooklyn Bridge Park. To keep the traffic at bay, the area has been equipped with speed bumps.

The Brooklyn Heights Library is currently undergoing a rebuild, and a permanent public pool is also expected to be built at Squibb Park. Unfortunately, the pool is currently on hold due to repairs on the BQE.

The borough is also home to many elite private schools. To prevent overcrowding, the schools were rezoned. 

Windsor Terrace

If families feel that Park Slope’s rent prices are high, then Windsor Terrace might be a good choice. Those looking for a quiet and residential area with a bit of Brooklyn atmosphere might desire to regard this neighborhood.

In Windsor Terrace, families can relish all that Prospect Park has to offer. The Greenwood, Vanderbilt, and Kings Bay Y playgrounds as well as the Parade Grounds of Prospect Park are all nearby. This means that you and your kids will never be without something to do with each other.

Windsor Terrace is also renowned owing to one of the city’s largest Pre-K centers and several high-performing schools. For instance, P.S. 130 is known for its diversity and community, and finding a rental in this area can be challenging. Most of the housing in this neighborhood is single-family houses and multi-family homes.

Ditmas Park/Flatbush

This area is known for its wide, Victorian-era houses and tree-lined streets which means that those who are looking for a yard with gardens can enjoy the freedom of landscaping or relish the city’s richness and the sweet taste of playing with their kids in a yard.

If you’re looking for a quiet residential area with a bit of Brooklyn in it, then Ditmas Park/Flatbush might be a good choice. There are a few new restaurants and shops on Cortelyou Road, as well as a variety of food co-ops and farmer’s markets as over the last few years, this area has been developing rapidly.

    1. Coney island on the boardwalk. Have you seen how many new buildings are going up? A Ferry? And bidding for casinos. N,D,Q trains. Hopefully crime will decline and in 5 years the community can really flurish 😉
