New York City is infinitely less cool when you’re a parent. That open-concept walk-up studio is not very appealing when you’re raising a little person and dealing with stairs, shouty neighbors and dirty parks.

StreetEasy feels you, parents. Using listings data for two or more bedroom rentals, they created a list of the 10 best New York neighborhoods to raise a family. (Spoiler: Brooklyn dominates.) The criteria behind the rankings: be surrounded by other families; have good schools nearby; and not break the bank.

Find the neighborhoods with their scores and StreetEasy’s estimated median rents below:
