It really depends on your layout. We were in a 900sf 2bedroom and it wouldnt have worked. But we had a large master (13x17), a large common space (open kitchen, dining area, living room/den area, and then another area at the front of the apartment that my DH used as an office, and the second bedroom was 8x9. Worked OK as a nursery for DS but would have been exceptionally tight fitting 2 babies in there, let alone 2 older kids - especially opposite gender. If our apartment had a smaller common space and a larger second bedroom maybe, but I would think DC would want their own rooms as they got older... [ Reply | More ]

I do this for a living and we make sure to keep the parents out of it. Parents want the kids to sound really impressive but that is what the rest of the app is for. This is the one opportunity where the reader gets to hear the kid's own voice (and it should sound like a kid's voice!) Try not to overthink it; the kid can be conversational instead of aiming for a staid English paper. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] We've been living with 2 kids in a 900 sq ft, 2 bed, 1 bath apartment (that we own) in a good school zone. Younger just entered K, which means we are no longer paying for private preschool and can afford a moderate increase in housing costs. If we stay in this nabe, we can only upgrade maybe 100 sq ft and get a second 1/2 bath. If we move to Harlem or Hudson Heights, we could get a much larger 3 bed, 2 bath. I'm torn - love the nabe and being close to school, but not sure a tiny upgrade is really worth it. WWYD? 16 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I know people very happy with Harlem and other upper manhattan neighborhoods and others who would rather live in a tiny place elsewhere in Manhattan. sometimes there are other compromises - walk up or nonDM in Yorkville might get you more space for example. but i think harlem has a lot of potential and a more lively vibe.
