[SIZE=3][LEFT][SIZE=3]Hi[/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]We're a young family with one baby & a dog. We're about to relocate from Europe to NYC for work purposes. So, we're looking for a neighborhood in Manhattan in which we could find both some mother-baby activities and nice public parks etc. [/SIZE][/LEFT]

Do you have a budget for an apartment? That'd help.

Yikes! That's not much at all. If you're lucky, you'll get a one-bedroom....

You could try Edgewater in New Jersey - we moved from NYC there when we wanted more space. It is 25min by bus to the city and 7 min on the ferry. It is a great place with shopping, parks nearby and the comunity library has a lot of activities for mother-baby and so do some classes offered in the area. It has great water views and also views of the Manhattan skyline from most apartments. You will find a lot of professional couples with kids/dogs or both here and people are very friendly. We loved it so much we bought a condo here. We are now relocating out of state for our job Moderator cut: advertising Another place to check is Newport, Jersey city - very convenient to the city but not as upscale as edgewater and also more for singles/couples without kids. You could try Hoboken, NJ too if you don't care for the parking. It's a little more expensive but a nice lively town with lots of clubs, restaurants, activities, etc...

I think Park Slope is basically what you're looking for. I don't know how much rent is in that neighborhood, I'm sure it will be a lot though.

Try a nice area of the Bronx. Van Cortlandt Villiage, Norwood west of Jerome Ave are very nice and quiet, Woodlawn, Throgs Neck and Riverdale. You can get a 2 bedroom apartment between $1,300-$1,400.
