Finding the right spot to raise a family is no easy task, but we’ve done our homework. Below are some key data points that are drawing families back into the city and driving the urban family marketplace.

“Families are defining their move based not only on schools, but amenities too.”

NYC School Help

“In the distant past, there were three notable public elementary schools that I would recommend in Manhattan. Now, over the last 5-10 years, as there are so many high quality public elementary schools, I will ask parents where they will find the most suitable real estate in their price range, then recommend comparable options. Regardless of where you live, there is always the opportunity to apply to private schools as well.”
