What Is the Best NYC Neighborhood?

NEW YORK — Recently, I had the good fortune to answer the question: What is the best New York City neighborhood to live in?

Asked by Trulia user Crazykenny, the query was an interesting one whether talking about sales or rentals.

Off the top of my head, I wrote the following response (and I’ve linked several of my own photos from around the city):

Going by only your user name, I would say you’d probably enjoy some of the craziest areas in the city. Depending on how you define the term, those neighborhoods best suited to you might be in Chelsea, the Upper East Side, SoHo or the East Village, all of which offer a variety of nightlife options, trendy restaurants and lively bars, as well as a vibrant feel. Williamsburg is another possibility, if you’re willing to go a stop or two into Brooklyn.

For as many neighborhoods as you have in New York (comprising the five boroughs of Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, the Bronx and Staten Island), you will probably find just as many people who say THEIR neighborhood is the best one in which to live.

Your best bet would be to read up on and visit every neighborhood, ask your friends/relatives/coworkers and/or find an experienced real estate agent who is also a born-and-bred New Yorker who loves many of the neighborhoods mentioned (as well as others) for very different reasons.

Congratulations, because you’ve just found the latter. Feel free to give me a call, text me or shoot me e-mail and I’d be more than happy to help you figure out exactly what the best NYC neighborhood might be for your needs.
