The rent is too high in these neighborhoods
City Island – A slice of NYC Paradise
I’m extremely surprised that THE FASHIONABLE UPPER EAST SIDE OF MANHATTAN, ESPECIALLY YORKVILLE WAS NOT INCLUDED AS ONE OF THE BEST NEIGHBORHOODS IN ALL ASPECTS & VENTURES TO LIVE IN.
I am in a similar circumstance.
I don’t know how old you are
But I’m looking for a roommate. I am a woman
Please stay away from any part of the city that will displace long time residents and take away from the authenticity of what made neighborhoods neighborhoods (eg LES)
This article is a waste of digital paper. There is no best place to live because each neighborhood has its own personality and demographic.
This article must have been written 25 years ago, before the developers sucked all the character out of them
I noticed it’s all the neighborhoods that are gentified or historical White American neighborhoods.
This city I call home for 49 years and 2 months is about to become my ex home. Sadly, my social security retirement check can not pay for a decent monthly rat hole in this city. I am at the mercy of family menmbers while I am looking for a way out. Great city! I will come to vizit.
The nyu students in the east village have absolutely destroyed the neighborhood. No ambience left…too expensive, too loud and loaded with spoiled brats. The lower east side is similar. Both of these neighborhoods were inexpensive and full of New Yorkers….as well as artists and dancers and actors and poets. Not anymore. This best of is not legit.
How can you overlook Riverdale when you include Forest Hills? Much better commute, Beverly Hills East in terms of classic homes well in $2-5mm range, green belt, next to Westchester County, what am I missing? Oh, I guess it’s the Bronx!
Gee , I can’t wait to get out. Sell my house to a sucker, that wakes up to gun shots every weekend, while I walk away with 1.8 million to a state with less taxes, clean streets, and civilized people.
Bay Ridge in Brooklyn is a very nice place to live except for the R train, Bensonhurst, Jackson Heights.
Who were the “experts” who were judging this predetermined outsider article.
The best parts of NYC are any areas other than those listed because you can go back home after spending an interesting afternoon in the three lower Manhattan hell-holes listed.
Forest Hills is nowhere are far from everything and Brooklyn Heights is expensive and full of new New Yorkers who thinks Downtown Brooklyn is a more peaceful Manhattan.
So long as I can sleep in a quiet bed without rats, roaches, violence, dog crap underfoot, maybe have a patch of green and be able to park my car for free while l can visit any one of NYC’s many wonders without having to live next to the “wanna be whatevers” existing in those neighborhoods, then that is a better place to live.
NYC is for the Rich who can buy their way around or the young, who can live through anything. The rest of us have NYC’s lovely outer boroughs. God Bless the Bridge and Tunnel People who are the salt of NYC.
‘Study Finds’ that the writer of this ridiculous article seems to have no idea of what those neighborhoods have become the last 30yrs. The pic of the East Village is NOT even it.
They mentioned all these neighborhoods but forgot the best place downtown. Tribeca! Which also started as an artist community. Pricey but still the best place in town next to Battery Park City.
This is, without a doubt, the stupidest article about living in NYC that I have ever read, you just picked the 5 most expensive places to live and wasn’t to act as if any regular person could possibly live in any of them without some big financial support. I’m so sick of people who aren’t from here, telling others, what’s “the best”. You are the people that ruined this city for everyone else. Please go away
