StreetEasy Open House Scorecard: Family-sized apartments still rule

Families looking for a new home should take notes from this week's installment of the Open House Scorecard. The ten most popular open houses on StreetEasy.com over the last week (measured by how frequently each open house was "saved") include plenty of 2 and 3-bedroom apartments, large and versatile enough for a growing household.
On the Brooklyn side of the river there's this $775,000 2-bedroom on St. Marks Place in Park Slope, which can be converted to a 3-bedroom when the time is right, and welcome a washer and dryer when the money's right. Other perks for a young family: The apartment's located a short walk from Prospect Park and won't turn away your pooch (or cat or your kid's weary class pet).
On the pricier side, there's this $1.35 million 2-bedroom in the West Village. Between the unit's storage and the basement's bike room, there's more than enough space for all the toys, games, toilet paper, cereal boxes and generic stuff a family accumulates. It's located near two elementary schools (P.S. 3 and P.S. 41) a middle school (Simon Baruch) and walking distance from Hudson River Park.
