Could it be Inwood? Morningside Park? Soho? Nolita? Murray Hill? Turtle Bay? Or Kips Bay?

Name it on the poll!

Upper East Side.
I'll add in Washington Heights because Dominican boys are hot.
There's nothing like getting on the A train and watching the boys.
I just would like to add that J. Lo lied.
There ain't shit On The 6 except Luchos and that's way way up the 6.

Greenwich Village for me!

The Waverly Theatre, Washington Square, Balducci's (alas! it's now gone), Bleecker Street, people watching, handball/paddleball and organized basketball at West Fourth Street, Jefferson Market Library, book shops, wine shops, some groovy galleries and restaurants, jazz/blues clubs!

Aaahhhh!

Up to about 1940 it was still called GREENwich Village. When the Tories took over the City from the Dutch (whom we call Knickerbockers) they re-named streets and sections for British towns or people. The Dutch who remained there pronounced those names exactly as they are spelled so that "GRENich" Village was pronounced 'GREEN'wich. "Temms" (spelled Thames) was pronounced "Thaymes" -- it's still pronounced that way.

If it were up to me, I'd still call it 'GREEN'wich Village.

The areas that I've stayed in that I liked best were Greenwich village and whatever it is by Central Park West by some hostel I stayed at around 103rd and Amsterdam :confused: I liked both areas for different reasons.

A college buddy of mine had a place near Elaine's.

Good times on the Upper East Side. :cool: :cool: :cool:

Plus the string of Irish Pubs :drink: within walking distance. :yeah:

Last time I was there I stayed over on the West side in the 40s (don't know if there's a name for the hood) but it was pretty posh. I ended up walking at least a mile drunkenly searching for a White Castle (there was one near the Empire State Building a couple of years ago but last November I cabbed down there and it was gone - I did a lap around the building because I couldn't believe it wasn't there and then walked up way up the north because some bum told me that I'd eventually find one and he didn't do a brutha wrong. :dance: )

Depends on the avenues. 6th-8th Avenues is Midtown/Times Square; 8th Ave and further west is Clinton (Hellís Kitchen).

I'd say Greenwich Village, except for blocks where NYU has bought up practically every piece of real estate in sight. :rolleyes:

There are also some great nooks and crannies in the East Village and Lower East Side.

While I don't especially love the Upper West Side, it's a great place to go to hear concerts. :)

Are you a native New Yorker or a transplant? I ask because local don't usually say Greenwich Village unless they're talking to out-of-towners.

Well I split my time living in NYC, NJ, and going to boarding school in CT. When I go home to NYC, I like to go down to Greenwich Village to visit and hang out with my friends who go to NYU so...
