That's good. Sometimes the neighborhood is more important then the place you reside in. My apartment is smaller then my old one, and also slightly more expensive, but the neighborhood is much better. The UWS is also one of my favorite areas.

All of Williamsburg [and even Greenpoint to a certain extent] are very ugly. I think that's the reason why I rarely go to them despite what they offer.

Why wouldn't you just move to an affluent neighborhood in the first place? No need to test your limits of what's bearable when you have the resources.

I was attempting to save money. I am not always going to be funded by my parents as I am now.

Nice, sweet deal. Enjoy your new place. Keep in mind that there are places in the outerboros where you can both save money and not drastically reduce your overall quality of life.
