The cities are: NYC, LA, CHI, PHI, DC, SF, & MIA. For this this thread, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, and Miami Beach can be included as well.

Wow, that's 35 neighborhoods. I don't think I could even name that many. Anybody else?

I'm going to base this on wanting to LIVE in the neighborhood, rather than just visiting


NYC (in no particular order):

Ft Greene
Park Slope
East Village
UWS
Brooklyn Heights

Chicago:
Wicker Park
Bucktown
Lincoln Park
Andersonville
Lincoln Square

DC:
Columbia Heights
DuPont Circle
Cleveland Park
Shaw
Adams Morgan


In the other cities, there are no more than three or four neighborhoods that I know well.

New York:
Greenwich Village
East Village
Upper East Side
Upper West Side
Hell's Kitchen
(No outer boroughs because I'm so uncool that I still believe Manhattan has all the best stuff)

Chicago:
Lincoln Park
River North
Bucktown
Wicker Park
Gold Coast

Los Angeles:
Santa Monica
West Hollywood
Venice
Los Feliz
Beverly Hills

DC:
Georgetown
Logan Circle
Dupont Circle
Downtown
Alexandria (if I can go outside the city limits on LA and Miami, I can do this, too)

I don't know the other cities well enough to comment. Even though I've been to Miami probably 10 times, I couldn't name five neighborhoods I really like -- poor Miami. Do love Miami Beach and Coconut Grove, though.

The moral of this story is apparently that I love rich neighborhoods. I do like grittier places, honest -- but not as much as the neighborhoods I mentioned here.

I think we should include Google Maps on this as well so people can learn of new places.
