Take that 30-something Park Slope stroller mommies! Sheepshead Bay kicks your ass when it comes to raising children, if you believe the study done by the Citizen’s Committee for Children of New York.

According to a News 12 Brooklyn Report, Sheepshead Bay ranked second in Brooklyn neighborhoods, behind Bay Ridge and just ahead of snooty Park Slope.

The study weighed factors that positively impact a child’s well being including the adult employment rate, median income and levels of child poverty.

But not included in the study is the fact that we’ve also got great parks, a strong school district and a slew of kids-related services. Are you a parent? What makes Sheepshead Bay so great for child-rearing?
