lol yeah, for some reason I read the thread wrong. Anyway, Syracuse is a city and doesn't really look anymore urban than Long Island does.

Well, it is a thread about affluent or upper middle class urban neighborhoods. Believe me, we have our rough 'hoods too, including one of the poorest in the country actually in the Near West Side neighborhood. We have other really nice neighborhoods too like Meadowbrook, most of Salt Springs, the Shotwell Park section of the Eastwood neighborhood(actually most of the neighborhood is fine), South Valley and the Northside neighborhood.

I really love Forest Hills. Houses in the multi-millions. You walk through this town and you feel like you're in Europe...
I love those homes. Queens is my favorite place EVAR.

Raleigh:
Cameron Park: 1910's-1920's neighborhood sandwiched between Glenwood South district of DT, Cameron Village and NC State Univ.
Oakwood: Victorian Neighborhood immediately east of DT/State Government complex and Governor's Mansion.
Glenwood South & Glenwood/Brooklyn: DT entertainment district/neighborhood of new high end condos & apartments + turn of century single family homes on its periphery.

Miami Beach:
South of Fifth: Very high end condos up to the tens of millions of dollars.
Venetian Islands: Condos and waterfront single family homes just West of Lincoln Road and Miami Beach's Downtown.

In all cases above, these locations are accessible to much by foot, bike or short cab/bus rides.

You have to be way more specific. Manhattan has tons of affluent neighborhoods. I say more specific because you have to leave out Washington Heights, Inwood, and Harlem--they aren't affluent at all, lol.

These are some bird's eye views of some affluent Memphis neighborhoods. None of these are in the suburbs, all within the city limits. Memphis has some really nice areas, it's not all ghetto.

Harbor Town, Mud Island


Central Gardens, Midtown


Chickasaw Gardens, East Memphis


Shady Grove, East Memphis


Walnut Grove, East Memphis

I'm mildly confused, it gets to be that brown?
