The noisy neighbors thread got me thinking. Part of the price you pay to live in NYC or any other great city, is the noise and the other people. But it obviously has a limit and parties from dusk til dawn every night, stereo surround sound blasting from the downstairs neighbor with a bunch of elephants living above you is too much. Which areas of NY are still close to the amenities and fun that NY is known for, but have fairly respectful and quiet neighbors?

Forest Hills, the area where all the mansions and beautiful houses are at. Especially during the winter, the place as quiet as heck.

I would also say Throggs Neck and Pelham Bay in the Bronx. It's busy during the afternoon but dead at night.

The UES can be very quiet, depending upon building and location within the neighborhood, especially areas west of 3rd. Residential side streets are the most quiet, with smaller buildings, and/or townhouses making up the majority of the housing stock.

Riverdale in the Bronx is also very quiet, especially areas west of the Henry Hudson Parkway, and within the Fieldson area, though there are residential side streets in Spuyten Duyvil and Central Riverdale that are also quiet. Doulaston and Little Neck are also quiet, but border Nassau County, though, like Riverdale, are not terribly far from the attractions of Manhattan, though perhaps fastest travel is not via public transit, save for LIRR. Many of the houses in these areas are single-family detached houses, which would necessarily be quiet from noise above/below, unless one has a noisy family.
