In Brooklyn, probably Williamsburg. As far as I know, Brooklyn Heights has no nightlife to speak of.

In Manhattan, the Meatpacking District and East Village.

Don't know anything about the other 3 boroughs.

Brooklyn - Park Slope or Bay Ridge

Queens - Astoria

Manhattan - Lower Midtown between 34th and 14th

Bronx and SI - Not sure most Bronx and SI residents tend to come into Manhattan for Nightlife.

Does anyone else have insight on options for those living in Riverdale? Is there any nightlife to speak of in the Bronx, or is a commute into Manhattan pretty much the only option?

Montague Street in Brooklyn Heights has many restaurants, etc. that are open at night.

For nightlife, I either partied in Manhattan or Westchester. The Bronx was strictly residential for me.

In Manhattan, I had a great time at a variety of clubs on the West side, in the Village - East and West. Some of my favs were Nell's, Knitting Factory, Liquid, Shadow, Copa...

I wouldn't call that nightlife. Practically every neighborhood in NYC has restaurants that are open at night. Montague Street has Eamonn Doran (old-style Irish restaurant/bar), Teresa's (old-style Polish restaurant), Armando's (Italian), a Starbucks and a couple of other restaurants whose names escape me (a diner and a few Chinese/Japanese/Thai restaurants). It's not exactly a nocturnal hotspot.

I assume OP is asking about clubs and bars, of which Montague Street has none, unless you count the bar at Eamonn Doran's which is probably full of old lawyers. It's basically a pretty sleepy street and certainly not a nightlife destination. Williamsburg, Park Slope, Bay Ridge and Prospect Heights all qualify ahead of Montague Street.

As far as a I know, no neighborhood in the Bronx or Staten Island has anything close to great nightlife.

Manhattan: East Village and Lower East Side
Brooklyn: Wiliamsburg and Park Slope
Queens: Astoria (or Flushing for karaoke bars and good late night drunk food)
