We can live wherever we want and choose to live here - for now.

I could see a few other areas, and they will not include the area downtown where I spent most of my life.

Hudson View Gardens is not so expensive ...? I thought the scarcity of available units was more the issue.

Probably one of those townhouses overlooking the Brooklyn Heights Promenade and Brooklyn Bridge Park. But if Manhattan is a precondition for this massive cash infusion, I'd go Central Park West. Townhouse in the Village would be a close second.

I've always been partial to East 73rd Street.

Or maybe Beekman Place.

It's not too horrible, just out of my reach for now. I have my fingers crossed that the prices won't appreciate too much more in the next 5-10 years, but the heights as a whole is jumping fast. I'm surprised the rents, though relatively cheap, are as expensive as they are now versus last year sans five years ago when I first looked up there.
