12) Bushwick

There's nothing wrong with Bushwick, of course. And it's certainly the place to be right now if you don't have children. But everything that makes it so great for young, single creatives is kind of what makes it less than ideal for young families. Namely, there isn't a lot of green space. The public schools in Bushwick have traditionally been lacking, but there are some positive signs and the elementary school PS 196 has been showing great signs of improvement in recent years. That said, most of the cultural events in the area are directed toward adults, not families. This isn't a bad thing about Bushwick exactly. No neighborhood wants to get taken over by strollers. Really. That's a very specific and horrible kind of death.
