"Best Deal in Manhattan!"
I moved back to the city from Brooklyn a few years ago after the prices became unbearable in the trendy neighborhoods. After researching for awhile I decided upon coming to the Kips Bay area. It's a really reasonable price for the amount of convenience and nice areas nearby. There's great shopping at the Fairway or the family market across the street. Quietest movie-theater in the city. Not trendy at all, but the quick walk to the East Village is what it's all about. So nice to be able to walk to work again!
