Fantastic neighborhood in NY
This area of the city is convenient to everything. Easy to get to midtown or downtown and tons of services within walking distance.

Princeton
Loved the area
I loved living in this area - the best bakery in the city (Two Little Red Hens) is right here along with great grocery stores and great shopping. In addition it is easy to get around the city because of the 4,5,6. The only downsides were 2nd avenue subway construction and that it is not a great area to go out in. Lower rent more than makes up for that, though!

Upper East Side by Central Park
Really pleasant neighborhood. Just a few steps from Central Park and 2 blocks from the 4/5/6 line. Great area for art lovers. Close walk to Guggenheim, Met and the Frick. One downside is the lack of weekend brunch options. Overall, loved the area!

Everything you need nearby
Central Park and West Side Highway for running. Hell's Kitchen for food. Tons of subway lines. NYSC and Gold's Gym. Lots of companies and offices. Minus 1/2 star due to limited nightlife options.

Conn College
UWS is wonderful
Great restaurants and bars on amsterdam and columbus. A friendly, non-pretentious neighborhood with people of all ages. There isn't a scene. It is normal and sophisticated without being snotty. I loved living on the UWS. It is also great to have the park so close. Favorite neighborhood in the world.

great access to transit
The best part of living around 23rd street is the quick access to a lot of subway lines. You can get anywhere in the city pretty fast. Also love the crosstown bus! It's a safe area to walk in any time of day or night. Madison Square Park is also excellent. There's a couple of good bars, clubs, and restaurants in the neighborhood, but most often you'll end up traveling to other neighborhoods to socialize.

Great for couples, less great for singles
Reasonable prices, close to the park and river for running, solid bars and restaurants. A bit of a hike to get downtown if that's your thing.

Great for recent graduates
I lived in East Village right after college for 3 years and it was great. Lots of young people, great restaurants and bars. Relatively inexpensive compared to NYC prices. Highly recommend anyone looking to move to NYC.

Alphabet City
It's a great area to live. It's one of the last places to have gentrified in Manhattan proper. Amazing places to eat and the subway is only about 9 min walk away.

Old building, but great location
Building is old, but the location is great. Close to Grand Central. Grocery store and dry cleaners are on the same block. Gym in the building. Very quiet.

BK Heights - the BEST NYC neighborhood
Brooklyn Heights, specifically the 20 or so square blocks southeast of the promenade, has all the sophistication of Manhattan, some of the most beautiful brownstones in the world, all within a serenity found few other places in the five boroughs.

Great getaway in the East Village
I lived in Stuy Town with my girlfriend, and we loved it. It was accessible to all the fun of the east village - bars, restaurants, etc. - and union square. It was also a quiet getaway from the rest of the city and a good value.

RIvergate
Pros: Good, cost effective building, great view of the river, easy to find taxi (unless its raining) Cons: Right by FDR, so traffic can be loud; building only washes windows once a year, ten minutes away from public transportation

Johns Hopkins, Stanford
safe area, poor subway, not fun
The area is very safe and parts are fairly upscale. The apartments are generally nice. The subway is a bit of a hike, and inconvenient. It is not in a fun area. Almost always need to grab the 456 downtown.

Johns Hopkins, Stanford
safe area, mildly convenient, close to fun
Apartments in this area are generally nice and it is safe. Convenient to grocery and drug stores, but not convenient to the subways (only close line is the L). Not in the center of fun, but a short walk to the fun part of 2nd and 3rd ave. Also a short cab ride to Soho/EV.

UPenn
Good location for those out of school
Great access to work if your office is in Midtown but has a lot going on compared to Murray Hill.

Clinton Hill A-Okay
Clinton Hill is a small neighborhood sandwiched between Ft. Greene and Bed Stuy. You're close to bars / restaurants in both Ft. Greene and Prospect Heights, and not too far from the Atlantic-Pacific subway stop. It's kind of like Ft. Greene Jr... not quite as nice, not quite as convenient, but a little bit cheaper. Highlights: Beny's, Hot Bird, Waverly Wu

Columbia
Alright neighborhood
Lived here for a year. Good social scene for right after college, but restaurants aren't great and it's tough to get across town without a long walk or a cab.

Love this neighborhood
Great restaurants and social life, really pretty and relatively quite / calm area. Easy walk to Union Square to get around by subway. Highly recommended.

Good access to rest of city, okay neighborhood.
Great access via subway to the rest of the city, perfect if you work in midtown and want to go downtown for social events. Neighborhood itself is pretty nice, especially to the south and east (Madison Square Park / Flatiron), but north is pretty run down.

Great spot to live at
Great neighborhood just a bit of a walk from the subway.

Brown, McKinsey & Company, Stanford
Awesome area!
The LES is such a cool area with so many amazing bars, restaurants, and shops. It's also convenient to public transportation if you don't mind the FJ line. Try Clinton St. Baking Company. Don't be fooled by how this neighborhood looks by day. At night, this place is amazingly fun and hip and worth the rent you're going to have to shell out.

East Village? Go farther East!
I lived here for two years and it was by far my favorite spot in Manhattan. You're a little further from the subway but the apts are bigger. You're right next to the river which is a great place to run. Ave C is totally safe (seriously, I did the research and more crimes occur in the middle of the village).

One of Harlem's hot spots
One of Marcus Samuelsson's (Iron Chef, Top Chef Masters) restaurants. The New York Times calls it "culinary mosaic of Southern, Swedish and Ethiopian comforts." Wonderful ambiance. A bit pricey. One of the "cool" new places to go in Harlem.

Brooklyn Heights is closer than you think
I loved living in Brooklyn Heights. Just two stops outside of Manhattan on the 2,3,4,5,N or R it was super east to get to the West or East side and even the Lower East Side. The famous Brooklyn board walk made for excellent runs with an amazing new park right under the Brooklyn Bridge. It didn't hurt that the Brooklyn Bridge was nearby, again making for excellent runs. Montague street itself is full of great restaurants. It's no wonder the post-MBAs at my firm like to live our here.

Nice entry to Manhattan
This is a great place to live if you're new to NYC because it feels sort of like a smaller community and is surrounded by acres of parkland. Yeah, the subway access isn't the greatest but the apartments are huge!

Living Near B'Way has its Pros & Cons
Pros - I lived here on the corner of Broadway & 102nd. The location is super convenient. Businesses and restaurants are literally feet away and the subway stop was less than half a block. Also, all else equal, rents are cheaper the closer you are to broadway (vs apts west of broadway) Cons - Broadway is loud. The farther west you go the more quiet it is. This means that having your windows up while watching tv will require you turn the volume up loud on your tv.

Best Chinese Food in New York
Tang Pavillion - an upscale Chinese restaurant. Hands down the best Chinese in NYC (maybe in all of the USA) -- they deliver pretty fast also

If you can help it, live Near the express subway stops
Gentrification in Harlem happens near the Express subway (A, D) stops. In West Harlem, that means 125th & 145th streets. This is where you'll most of the new residential buildings and most of the newere business and restaurants. Also, If you live anywhere downtown, living near an express stop cuts your commute time significantly. All else equal its better to go farther uptown if it means living near an express stop (145th St > 135th St)
