You can still find a decent one bedroom for $2100-2600 there, granted that is still out of my price range so I ain't moving over there any time soon.

Since Staten Island is the most suburban of the 5 boroughs, I would assume we have some of the cleanest neighborhoods in the city. I mean, even an area like the UES or UWS is probably fairly dirty just by virtue of there being so many people around.

Seems like UWS is pretty solid. Are there distinct neighborhoods within UWS (between 59th and 110th sts)? Or is it pretty similar throughout that area?

Battery Park City
UWS
UES

The cleanest parts of UES and UWS are the ones next to Central Park between 59th and 100-110th streets. There are also very nice parts next to Hudson and East River.

It will be interesting to compare dirtiness in NYC with San Francisco. Many have called SF dirty, but I don't see it at all. I have a feeling NYC is quite a bit dirtier than SF but maybe I'm wrong. I'll find out in about 10 days...

I used to live in Yorkville a few years ago and it was pretty clean, I was around E 89th and York Avenue near Gracie Mansion. The more people you have around you that either own or pay a high rent, the more people you have that care about their property and its' surroundings.

The whole Upper East Side apart from the monstrous mess made by the Second Avenue Big Dig is quite clean.

Forest Hill Gardens, Bayside, Whitestone, Douglaston, and Jamaica Estates are probably the cleanest areas in Queens.

cleanest realistic neighborhoods (as in under 1600 for a 1 bedroom) are kensington/midwood/windsor terrace all in brooklyn. these are VERY residential areas, especially kensington and a lot of midwood. Many blocks youd think you were no where near nyc

The Upper West Side is Manhattan....
