Hi, I would like to know which borough would suit me better?
I know Staten Island is pretty isolated. The Bronx has a higher crime rate than the other boroughs. I think I'm just trying to decide between Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens. I would love to have you guys' opinions on each of the boroughs. Thanks.

I prefer high density places, like I like everything crammed together & building up, like you can walk out of your apartment (another thing, I prefer apartments rather than houses) & see tons of restaurants, shops. I like crowded areas, anytime of the day & night.
I don't want to drive a vehicle; I would be much more willing to take public transportation.
I'm more into foods, cultures, attractions, shopping, nightlife, etc. as opposed to history, architectures, etc.
I'm very ambitious, open-minded and a liberal person.
I'm a fast-paced person and like experiencing and trying new things.
I would also like to go into business and finance.
I have no interest in any aspect of suburban life.

It sounds like Manhattan is for you. Or a certain few neighborhoods in Brooklyn and Queens.

Assuming you can afford it, no reason you wouldn't move to Manhattan. If you can't afford Manhattan, north Brooklyn or west Queens would work.

Can someone give me a more detailed aspect of Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn? Or if you feel up to it, a description of the Bronx and Staten Island as well?

Manhattan if you can afford it. In Queens, you might consider Astoria.

One place would not be for you... Riverdale, NY. It would be too suburban for your liking.
