REAL ESTATE NEWS Five neighborhoods to consider living in

 

If you’re planning on living in New York City, choosing the right neighborhood can be the ultimate challenge. Each area has its own perks and problems, and they all offer a distinctly different vibe from one another. 

Here are five New York City neighborhoods you should consider. 

1. NoHo 

Named for its location north of Houston Street (just as SoHo is named for its location south of the same street), NoHo is an upscale NYC area popular with celebrities. This primarily residential neighborhood is sandwiched between Greenwich Village and the East Village and offers easy access to those vibrant neighborhoods. Rents are high in NoHo, though, so if you’re on a smaller budget head south to up-and-coming Nolita.  

2.  Hell’s Kitchen 

Otherwise known as Clinton or Midtown West, this former working-class neighborhood has been slowly shaking its gritty reputation for a couple of decades. The neighborhood’s proximity to Broadway theatres and the famous Actors Studio has made it popular with aspiring actors, and more recently young Wall Street workers have started to take notice, too. 

3. Battery Park City 

This planned community adjacent to TriBeCa and the Financial District mainly attracts financial professionals and families. More than a third of the area is dedicated to parkland. Its proximity to the Hudson River gives BPC a tranquil suburban feel. But, trendy new shops and restaurants are popping up all the time which retain the Manhattan vibe. 

4. Kips Bay 

South of Murray Hill is Kips Bay, said by some to be the last middle-class neighborhood in Manhattan. This inclusive area attracts elderly people, families, young singles, and immigrants. It’s also at the forefront of the micro-apartment movement in the city, making it your best bet for small but affordable homes in the heart of NYC.  

5. Brooklyn Heights 

 Just off the Brooklyn Bridge on the East River, Brooklyn Heights offers the perfect balance of a cozy residential feel while still having easy access to Manhattan. The area is known by some as the first suburb in New York City, but there’s plenty of culture, too. And, the panoramic views of Lower Manhattan are spectacular.
