Moving soon? Maybe you are looking for a Manhattan neighborhood which has lots of kid-friendly resources and other children that your kids can play with. Or maybe you looking for a neighborhood that is less child-friendly… one that has more drunken debauchery and fewer strollers. Now there is a handy map made just for you by the team at Address Report to get your answers from.
Our NYC real estate data experts here at AddressReport crunched the numbers from the most recent New York City housing data set to rank the Manhattan neighborhoods with the greatest proportion of children living in households vs those that have the least.
And now with the most-used phrase in reporting: What they found may surprise you… But seriously, it is surprising.
According to our analysis, Battery Park City is the most "kid friendly" neighborhood in the borough. Approximately 36% of households there have one or more kids at home.
Who knew Battery City was overloaded with kids? I didn't, but the last time I was down there was to take my visiting family of tourists to the Statue of Liberty half a decade ago. The other end of the list has a few obvious hoods, but holds some surprises as well:
For example, Wall Street (also known as FiDi or the Financial District) and Hell's Kitchen are tied for the neighborhoods with the least amount of children, at just 6% of households each. But on closer examination, there are some real surprises, including households in the West Village, Gramercy, and Soho (all known, typically, as family friendly) having as few children, proportionally, as Midtown.
