Local Reviews

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

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 like going to bars with my friends mostI like going to bars with my friends mostI like going to bars with my friends mostI like going to bars with my friends most

The most beautiful thing in the neighborhood is the neighbors and the system. I love restaurants and cafes in the neighborhood, and I like to go with my family to amusement parks and airports.

Most unique thing about my neighborhood is that Lincoln center is only half block away from where I live also the NYC circus is also located at Lincoln center. We have a good movie theater we're I like to go watch movies with my family and friends.

I used to like everything but now it is all changing . The proximity to New York City and the mountains was great. The schools were amazing and now will loose funding because the new group moving in does not believe in public education and don,t pay school taxes
