OP, I wonder, do you realize that Park Slope is the second most expensive neighborhood in Brooklyn? Brooklyn Heights being first.

So, if you feel priced out of the neighborhoods you mention, then why Park Slope?

In any event, if being in a trendy neighborhood is the desire, then I suggest giving up on the idea of 2 bedrooms. It is nothing unusual for a couple with small child to share a 1 bedrm.

Most of the brownstone neighborhoods like Park Slope have a small percentage of apartment buildings with formal 2 bdrm apartments. So, supply is low compared to brownstone apts, which are always oddly comprised. Your best bet w/b a small 1 bdrm with a den. The den c/b used as the baby's/small child's room.

$3K is the minimum for a fairly decent small 1 bdrm. Anything more will cost more, especially the newly built modern buildings which have popped up all over in recent years. These are likely what you want, but 2 bdrms will be over budget.

Astoria, Queens will give you the best bang for your buck, Queens in general is most cost effective.

Brand new 2 bdrms for $2500 and above.
