It all rather depends on what affordable means to you.  But don't count out Brooklyn.  Their are lots of nice parts of Brooklyn.  Park Slope and Carroll Gardens/Cobble Hill have a nice mix of the character of the Village but more family friendly.  And if those are too expensive for you, start radiating out from there.

Try looking at

Also, try going to neighborhoods that interest you and just look at flyers people have put up on lamp posts and such, especially in outer borough neigborhoods.  Much of Brooklyn is a faster and more convenient commute to downtown than much of Manhattan, and you get a lot more for your money.

How can you mention brooklyn in the context of "not manhattan" and fail to mention Williamsburg?

I tend to split brooklyn into old brooklyn - not trendy, grew up here, parents live here, and new brooklyn - trendy, just moved here, parents live in another state.
