I can't speak for the streets of Brooklyn however, my P&T was brilliant for the streets of London here in the UK. It easily handled the curbs, parks and bumpy bits (always check the tyres otherwise steering becomes difficult). It was also excellent for public transport as it takes up only a little more room (lengthwise) than a single buggy. They have a new one out called the 'Vibe' http://philandteds.com/products/push/vibe which folds down much smaller without needing to remove the backseat which is annoying. Also it is made of aluminium which is meant to make it lighter. This would be my only complaint about the P&T - it is very heavy. Add two children to that and you don't want to be taking it up too many steep hills or steps. I stored ours in the car as I couldn't take it down all the steps to our basement apartment.

This is exactly how we spent our summer holidays for the first 20 years of my life - except next to a beach in New Zealand. All our living in a shed a little smaller but after a few years we got an old garage to sleep in. We did everything outside - including virtually all the cooking. What a wonderful gift to give your children as I still remember endless summer holidays and weekends with no TV, running water (we did have electricity) and an outside toilet. The days stretched on forever. Enjoy!!
