1) Prospect Heights
So, what makes Prospect Heights the perfect place to raise kids in Brooklyn? Well, everything! It's right by Prospect Park and the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens. It's bordered by both BAM and the Brooklyn Museum. It's chock full of restaurants and has the bustling commercial scene that reminds you that you're living in a city, not a suburb. There are solid schools and lots of preschool options. The neighborhood might not be as cheap as it once was, but it's still a diverse and vibrant place to live. It's easily accessible from all over the borough, and the city at large. In short, it doesn't get any better than this.
[Note: I know—I KNOW—that this is not an exhaustive list and that there are easily twelve neighborhoods that are not mentioned at all. But this is it, this is the list. Do with it what you will.]
