An apartment over looking the Hudson, or probably a town house in the East Village.

Money no object: Central Park West in the low 70s
Realistic/could actually afford: Inwood or Washington Heights (somewhere along Fort Washington Pkwy)

TriBeCa, West Village, Upper West Side, or that Hudson Heights part of Washington Heights

Though really, I'm enjoying it in the Lower East Side/Chinatown haha.

Kips Bay, Murray Hill, Hells Kitchen/Clinton, Wash Heights/Inwood, LES/Little Italy/Chinatown. I like the vibe of these areas... It still has a lot of "Manhattan" in it but less pretentious and more laid back... These areas to me still have a somewhat neighborhood feel without being too sleepy...

Manhattan is nice to come visit but not to live in my opinion. Too congested, filthy and overpriced. Quality of life just stinks in Manhattan. I lived there for over 25yrs.

I now live 20 minutes away in a nice middle-class area of Queens and you couldnt pay me to move back to Manhattan. I have the comfort of having private parking for both my cars (no extra costs or ridiculous parking lot fee's like in Manhattan), a backyard, clean quiet streets, courteous neighbors and peace and tranquility. Not to mention I pay about 1/3 for what it would cost me to live in Manhattan.

I never understood the rich who pay 10's of millions of dollars to live in manhattan and once they leave their residence, they're confronted with traffic, noise, filth, congestion, homeless people, etc.... Just doesnt make any sense to me.

No Manhattan for me. Prefer quiet residential areas outside Manhattan. I would not mind being tucked away at the far end of Mill Basin where you can hear a pin drop.
