Local Reviews

I am right by: all major tranportation, Central Park, tons of restaurants and shopping. Time Warner is two blocks away.

I love that it's so close to the park where I can run. I also like the variety of bars and restaurants.

Its a regular neighborhood. I dont know what else to say about it its kind of perfect the way it is. It can be sketchy but its a fine place to live at.

It's tucked away / quiet. It's near the water. I like my apartment building. We love the Italian restaurant cafe Fiorello and being near Lincoln center

I love the history and architecture in my neighborhood. There are several parks within walking distance that offers a respit from city life.

The people are friendly and they know you by name sometimes and most of them know them by your name There are a lot of restaurants and stores where you can shop
