[ - ] We can buy a 2.5 bedroom condo in Park Slope and send to PS 10 or buy a whole house in Bed-Stuy and hope to get into one of the lottery District 13 schools (Community Roots, Arts and Letters, Brooklyn Prospect). Which one should we do? There is also option 3, which is Red Hook area and we would send to Success Academy Cobble Hill. Brooklyn moms, any experience with above? We're coming from LES, so only have a few friends in Brooklyn. DH loves Success Academy Cobble Hill more than PS 10, but I'm not crazy about the particular house in Red Hook, so more into other options. 32 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

There's also a Basis private school with decent tuition ($20K) in Red Hook (by the IKEA). That said, I would put Red Hook third on that list. Low lying flood area, too close to projects, no good public trans. I would choose Bed-Stuy first (that area is RAPIDLY gentrifying, and you'll make more bank for your buck). PS 10 is just meh, and you'll begin to feel cramped in 2.5 bedrooms if you have a second or third child. [ Reply | More ]

Yes, we already have 2 DCs. I don't want to do Basis because we're trying to avoid the cost of private schools with two kids. The risk with Bed-Stuy is that we wouldn't win the lottery for schools. Then we'd have to win lottery with Success in Cobble Hill and ride subway to school. Do you think it's too risky? [ Reply | More ]

There are some even cheaper private schools in Bed Stuy - one is a co-op school - my friend sends her daughter to it. There are also bed stuy & fort green success academies which will be good - but probably few white people. Red Hook is great in summer/spring/fall but horrible in winter! That said, I think there is an amazing community there - it's like living in a village. And I'm pretty sure the public school there is considered fine for prek & K. PS we have a fair amount of parents from bed stuy & fort green at SACH - but probably harder to get in from out of district now [ Reply | More ]

>My son grew up in an area where he spent a lot of time in the outdoors (hunting, fishing, etc.) He used to go out with my brother and live off the land for a week. About a year ago I remarried and we moved to NYC. My son has admitted he feels very contained, but he has been excelling in school, so I haven't worried much. But now I'm wondering if I made the right choice. [ Reply | More ]

Apartment living, as you know, is nothing like what your son experienced before. Look for weekend opportunities for him to get out into nature and see if your brother might have him for a few days over school breaks. Your ds needs connection to what he had before. Good for him physically and emotionally. [ Reply | More ]
