BPC or Tribeca.

That said. Many of the traditionally most prestigious neighborhoods in New York seem to have gone downmarket in recent years.

Suburbs where?

Actually the whole of the USA is the country, the suburbs and then there is Manhattan.

I find the same gloominess with the Financial District. Soon all of Manhattan will share the same dim gloominess with a 45 story tower going up on every available lot.

If I could afford to buy a nice place in Manhattan, I would just take the $2 million, go somewhere nice and retire.

Hmmm not sure since I always felt Manhattan is not that clean, always busy and attracts many tourists and can't forget about our working people who prefer to work in Manhattan than any other borough (because the companies pay more), lol. I would choose Lenox Hill...my taste is obviously expensive.

I don't like Manhattan for the most part, but I do like Harlem.

What is so great about TriBaCa? It is sandwiched between Holland Tunnel and Chinatown, super expensive too. Can someone enlighten me?

I can't begin to imagine why. You're in tourist central.
NOT all Midtown East are tourist central. Have you visited Sutton Place?
