"Pretty and Quiet Neighborhood With Lots of Convenience"

As a native New Yorker and resident of Kips Bay, I can't say enough about the neighborhood. I've lived before in mostly the more trendy neighborhoods, including the Village and Chelsea, and feel this area has a lot going for it. Being able to live in a quiet and convenient neighborhood without the ridiculous prices of the neighboring areas is a big plus.

There are plenty of restaurant and bar options, the East River Park / Stuyvesant Cove area nearby, the best movie theater in the city, and easy access to the East Village, Flatiron, Chelsea, etc. Also, for anyone working nearby in midtown, it basically gives you the option to walk everywhere and avoid taking the subway. Overall, an amazing deal to be in a prime part of Manhattan.
Pros
  • Nearby the River
  • Proximity to Trendy Neighborhoods
  • Great Prices for Manhattan
  • Great views
  • Movie theatre proximity
  • Nice Buildings
  • Quiet
Cons
  • Less Tourists
  • Great Price for Manhattan
  • Hipster-free
