  • Just a typical Brooklyn kid.

So you’ve decided to raise your family in Brooklyn. Good for you. The benefits are many and the drawbacks are, well, we’re going to go with “few.” Of course, that all depends on where you live, doesn’t it? Obviously it does. Everything depends on where you live. If it didn’t we would all just go live upstate in hipsturbia or wherever. Or, like, Philadelphia. But we’re not giving up on life yet, are we? No. We’re staying in Brooklyn. And as long as we’re doing that, we might as well figure out the best place in Brooklyn to live with a family. There are a lot of things to consider and everyone’s needs are different, so these neighborhood rankings might not work for you. And if your neighborhood didn’t crack the Top 5, or maybe didn’t even make it on the list at all, please feel free to explain why it is a totally great place to raise a child. I mean, your comment will still only be your opinion, while this list is definitive and scientifically-based, but whatever. If you don’t trust science, I guess it’s well within your rights to argue with me here.
