Maybe some nice leafy suburban style area in Queens near the LI border. Any suggestions?

Crown Heights includes zone 8 and 9 of Brooklyn in that map.
Sorry, but it seems like you misinterpreted the map in that website link.

Also, I know tons of people that live in Park Slope that would say Crown Heights does geographically border Park Slope along Prospect Park.

It is fascinating that one of my favorite neighborhoods in New York City
(Park Slope) borders one of my least favorite neighborhoods in New York(Crown Heights). Despite them bordering each other, they don't seem to influence each other at all.
As with your Union Square/Soho post, it is evident much of your knowledge of NYC seems to be based on reading maps and on-line neighborhood profiles. Before making sweeping judgements about neighborhoods and the people who live in them, it would really help to actually go there at least a couple of times.

Right.Clearly they don't border one another because Prospect Heights lies between them.Their respective CD's border one another but the neighborhoods do not.There is usually more than one official neighborhood in a CD and just because neighborhoods share a CD doesn't mean that all the neighborhoods in one CD border all the neighborhoods in the adjacent CD.

Prospect Heights is a small but officially recognized neighborhood with clear boundaries.It' Eastern boundary is Washington Avenue which is also listed as the Western boundary of Crown Heights.Prospect Heights' Western boundary is listed as Flatbush Avenue( Prospect Park) which is also the the Eastern boundary of Park Slope.

You don't know who I am and my posts. Stop making general assumptions about me.

I know most New York City neighborhoods very well and I have good knowledge for plenty of neighborhoods and how to determine what a neighborhood is like.

One example that proves this is how I have many neighborhoods in my favorite and least favorite categories for New York and I was the one that created this thread!

It is obvious you are being stubborn about this.
Park Slope and Crown Heights do border each.

The vast majority of people that I met that live in Park Slope would agree with this. Sorry but you are the one that read the map wrong.

Wrong. Park Slope does not border Crown Heights.

hmmm ... the "vast majority of people that you met that live in Park Slope" who would agree with you on this would be WRONG!

I honestly don't care anymore with this argument. This is my last post related to this.

I already know Park Slope and Crown Heights geographically border each other so there is no point to argue about this with somebody. Most people that live in Park Slope and Crown Heights agree with me.

I know they are such different neighborhoods it is hard for some people to believe that they are next to each other like that geographically.
