Favorite: Flushing. So many types of different, authentic asian foods, feels like a culinary adventure overseas.

Least Favorite: Aside from the ghettoes, Upper East Side. Sterile and no personality.

Upper East Side having no personality and being sterile? Seriously?

The Upper East Side has The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Guggenheim museum, lots of awesome density and buildings, lots of great restaurants of all types of cuisine. Some of the best highs schools in NYC(such as Urban Peace Academy, Talent Unlimited). Upper East Side is expensive but it most certainly has lots of personality and is far from sterile.


However, Flushing still sounds nice. I like that area of Queens.

Do you agree that most of the Bronx has some of the worst neighborhoods in New York City?

Worst part of the city - the area between Chelsea and Hell's kitchen. The hood meets transplants from Idaho.

Thats the same thing I said when I read the original post. Seems like you hate every part of the bronx except Riverdale lol

Just wondering, why would you hate the Bronx yet like Park Slope and Williamsburg? Not every part of Park Slope is great, there are definitely parts that look exactly like 3rd avenue in the Bronx.

Try exploring new parts of the Bronx like Pelham Bay and City Island

Favourite:

East Village, along with Soho, Bowery and the area around NYU.

I love the areas of the Bronx that aren't actually dangerous (Which is more of it than a lot of people seem to think.)

Least favourite:

The area between the lower west side and Hell's kitchen is relatively boring, it wants to be the hood, but it's not quite scary enough.

I tend to feel less safe in Chinatown than the rest of the city because of the density and overall seediness of the people there.

I can't stand a lot of Midtown. Most of the famous sights are underwhelming, aside from Grand Central Station. There's nowhere to eat apart from chains and bland tourist traps, and everything is overpriced.

I've never really been a fan of Queens.
