Storing a Large Stroller

Storing a Large Stroller

Q: We are moving to Brooklyn from NJ in a few weeks and I've determined that I need a double stroller to cart around our two daughters, ages 3.5 and 6 months. I've been debating between the Baby Jogger City Micro and the Phil and Teds Sport with doubles kit. I finally test drove both strollers and now understand what the big deal is about the Phil and Teds. I'm concerned about the size of it folded and am wondering: where do urban dwellers store it?

Editor: As a Brooklynite who also owns a Phil & Ted's I can give Amy some feedback. As much as I love my P&T and think it's the ideal stroller for my lifestyle and the streets (and curbs!) of Brooklyn you will probably not want to fold it up every day. It is not particularly quick or easy and it's a pain to empty out the large basket to fold it once you get used to storing things there (wipes, a few diapers, sunscreen, etc.). We don't love this solution, but in my house we "park" the stroller in a corner of the dining room. To us, having it always ready to go is worth giving up the space. Many of our Brooklyn friends who own this stroller keep it in a first floor hallway. This is not the stroller for you if you have to carry it up a flight of stairs (a few stoop stairs are doable). Okay, enough from me - anyone else? Are you an urban dweller with a large stroller - where do you keep it?
