For the area I live in, I think this is: Greater University HillÂ* — Syracuse, New York

The "Best" as in with the nicest houses? My favorites are Goose Hollow, Forest Park, Vista area, and the area around NW 23rd. In a broad sense, my favorite "area" of Portland is the west hills specifically in the northwest section.

For Alexandria, LA. The Garden District has the nicest older houses. The most desirable neighborhoods between the 1960's to 1980's were probably Wilshire Park and Charles Park. The nicest newer neighborhoods are Landmark, Tennyson Oaks, Crossgates, and the Lakes District.

That is not the best neighborhood lol. It is not well-diversed lol. There are mainly Gay People there. I would say Downtown Manhattan. There are different people Straight, Bi, Gay, etc...

the village has a lot of straight people, too. How'd you get the impression it was "mainly Gay People there"? Also, how does that disqualify it from being one of the best nabes around? It's eventful, pretty, and filled with history. Crime is low there, and it has good public transit options. My main complaint with it would be its costs.

Well you are right about the history. However the gay people outnumbers the straight people that are in the village. So you are partially wrong. However this neighborhood might be a great neighborhood for people that likes history or for the gay people.

Greenwich Village - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is where they did a liberation for the gay people. So this should tell you something. Note that I have nothing against the gay people I am just proving my point.

There are plenty of straight people in Greenwich village. Even your link lists straight people there. Hell, I know plenty of straight people who live in Greenwich village. Having a few gay landmarks and a part in US gay history does not make the entire neighborhood gay or even mostly gay.

Denver: Depends on what you're looking for. For the very young adult "action-oriented" types, LoDo. For more family-style living there is Cherry Creek, Wash Park, and Park Hill among others. For New Urbanism, Stapleton. Gentrification: Highlands.
