Open Thread: Brooklyn Heights Parents And Kids

We will be posting a Parents and Kids open thread regularly. This is a place to let other parents (including your humble publisher!) about events, classes and other activities for kids in and around Brooklyn Heights. It’s also a place to ask questions you may have in general about parenting, schools and other family related topics in the area.

So comment away!

    It is a good enough choice in an otherwise choice less district.
    Many families have gone from PS 8 to MS 8 so the student body is pretty much the same; and the fact that your kid can walk there… priceless!
    The only issue is the traffic situation around the school. Tillary St has some complicated intersections.
