Stuyvesant town in NYC. It's like an isolated small town in Manhattan.

I'm guessing you don't mean a literal small town feel as it's made up of huge apartment buildings

Yeah. I mean I've never lived in a small town but to me it seems very quiet and isolated from the rest of Manhattan. And I could also be wrong about this but it seems more community-oriented than other parts of Manhattan.

In Cleveland, Tremont is a good option. Tremont Montessori or Campus International are good public school options, and I believe there are some good private schools in that area as well (Hawken just opened up a West Side campus for example). Lots of restaurants and cultural offerings in the area. The area is the most gentrified neighborhood in Cleveland, and probably the wealthiest part of Cleveland proper.

In NYC areas like the Upper West Side and Park Slope are indeed great family neighborhoods, but they are expensive. Some less costly options in the city that are also good for families include:

Forest Hills (Queens) https://www.google.com/maps/place/71...c509a7!6m1!1e1

Astoria (Queens)
https://www.google.com/maps/place/Fo...369184!6m1!1e1

Hudson Heights (Manhattan)
https://www.google.com/maps/place/Fo...369184!6m1!1e1

Bay Ridge (Brooklyn)
https://www.google.com/maps/@40.6230...8i6656!6m1!1e1

Clinton Hill (Brooklyn)
https://www.google.com/maps/@40.6873...8i6656!6m1!1e1

Riverdale (Bronx)
https://www.google.com/maps/@40.8882...8i6656!6m1!1e1

There are also family neighborhoods that are supposed to be pretty nice on Staten Island, though I don't know Staten Island at all. All its famous for these days is the high incidence of drug use and overdose deaths, and being the only borough in the city that voted for Trump.
