Thanks to a forum poster I was able to secure a short term rental in the Stuyvesant Heights neighborhood for a mini-vacation. Since I would like to live like a local for my stay and tend to avoid the touristy spots I am seeking suggestions on family friendly places and activities to do while we are there. This will be our virgin visit to this neighborhood and we are excited about exploring everything Brooklyn has to offer. We will have a car and would appreciate comments and suggestions on the parking situation and/around Bainbridge Street where we are staying, as well as tips for using public transportation. If it helps we are not into the bar scene but love food of all kinds, enjoy visiting flea markets, and corky little stores that cater to the budget minded and has unusual merchandise. We will also have our 13 year old daughter in tow so the places we go would need to be appropriate for her also. Our visit is April 15-18 if there is any local events going on that you can recommend as well. Thanks in advance for all your help!
