All of those are very nice areas, but I don't think Tottenville or Eltingville could really qualify as being the most beautiful.

Fieldston (within the association), areas west of the parkway in Riverdale, Forest Hills Gardens, Douglas Manor (within the association), Brooklyn Heights, Sutton Place, and Carnegie Hill are a few that come to mind, though there are many neighborhoods that could be judged as beautiful depending upon criteria: architecture, park space, streetscapes, etc. And, within neighborhoods, there are gems of sub-neighborhoods that could meet the criteria, such as CPW on the UWS with landmark buildings overlooking the park.

I wouild both go with an expanded and contracted Carnegie Hill. I thing the truly most wondrous part of New York is the narrow sliver between Fifth and Madison that extends pretty much from 65th St. to 95th. Each side street is a wonderland of opulent elegance filled with the grandest townhomes in America, a lot of them since converted to art galleries, foreign consulates, private schools, and doctors suites.
These homes are what the gilded age in America was all about.

I exclude Park Avenue becasue, although expensive, the block after block of samey blocky apartment building gives a sterile look, sort of like warehousing the rich.

Ditmas Park IMO has to be the most beautiful residential neighborhood in NYC. Every block is lined with very tall tress that overlap the streets below. Along with huge Victorian-style homes dressed in Disney like paint schemes. You'd have never thought you were actually in Brooklyn. Yes, that's right - Brooklyn!
