I live around this area with my small family. It’s a great place just because it’s a mix of serenity and liveliness. The streets definitely get a bit packed at times when people get to work in the day. Since it is a relatively residential area, I decided that it was good for our family, and certainly good for my job in the city.

StuyTown can be great, depending on where your building is located. For 14th St and Ave B, there are pros and cons. Pros: - Quiet. It is like a park, especially in this area where there isn't a lot of traffic. - Very easy access to Alphabet City/East Village. Cross 14th St and you are there. A variety of bars and restaurants to choose from. Tompkins Square Park (great dog park) is a short walk. - A crosstown bus is on the corner.

StuyTown can be great, depending on where your building is located. For 14th St and Ave B, there are pros and cons. Pros: - Quiet. It is like a park, especially in this area where there isn't a lot of traffic. - Very easy access to Alphabet City/East Village. Cross 14th St and you are there. A variety of bars and restaurants to choose from. Tompkins Square Park (great dog park) is a short walk. - A crosstown bus is on the corner. This is nice if you don't want to walk two avenues to get to the L or just don't want to deal with the L altogether. - The grounds are kept nice. Always new flowers or plants, even in the winter. It is nice to come home to a well-kept area. It feels like a park, which is nice. Cons: - That L train. Usually awful, yet the best way to get over to the east side. The bus is fine, but much slower and sometimes just as crowded as the L. Wish there were other options for transportation over here. - Not a lot of basics options. There is a Dunkin, but it always tastes like they just cleaned with bleach. The "asian fusion" place on the corner isn't good and has a B rating. There is a bodega on the other corner which comes in handy, but is limiting. The Associated Supermarket between 1st and A is terrible. Bad produce and nearly expired meats. You could go to Ave C for another dingy store. Otherwise, your grocery trip is going to be annoying. <<less

Stuyvesant Town is a great area to live in. It is one of the safest neighborhoods in Manhattan. It is closed off from other neighborhoods and has a 24 security guard system available. The location is great. South of Stuy Town, there are a number of restaurants and bars that are available. To the west is Union Square and a lot of high-end places to eat and go out.

Stuyvesant Town is a great area to live in. It is one of the safest neighborhoods in Manhattan. It is closed off from other neighborhoods and has a 24 security guard system available. The location is great. South of Stuy Town, there are a number of restaurants and bars that are available. To the west is Union Square and a lot of high-end places to eat and go out. Stuy Town also offers a lot of different amenities, including a gym, cafe, kids area and study area (you have to pay for these). The rooms are pretty great. For Manhattan standards, the rooms are pretty big. You can get a number of different size rooms all the way up to a 3 bedroom convert to 4. There are two different finishes available as well, modern and classic. The classic finish is a lot nicer but also costs more. The actual Stuy Town neighborhood is very nice. There is an open lawn in the middle next to a big water fountain. During the summer this acts as the "Great Lawn" similar to that of Central Park. There are also two basketball courts and a turf field in the middle that transforms into an ice skating rink during the winter. The entire neighborhood is always taken care of and is very clean. Finally the location is great, next to the river and East River Park, where people can go for a run or play sports. Great area to live in. Only concern is that it is the L train can be an issue, but there are M14 buses that come pretty frequently. <<less

Living in Gramercy is a great way to ensure safety and quietness without having to sacrifice any of the conveniences. There are barely any overwhelming noises on the streets and it's hard to think of a safer place in Manhattan. This is partly due to the fact that there are always people in the area at any time of the day or night. The amount of Deli's offering all kinds of groceries in the area is great.

Living in Gramercy is a great way to ensure safety and quietness without having to sacrifice any of the conveniences. There are barely any overwhelming noises on the streets and it's hard to think of a safer place in Manhattan. This is partly due to the fact that there are always people in the area at any time of the day or night. The amount of Deli's offering all kinds of groceries in the area is great. The delis also provide sandwiches, bagels, wraps, rolls, etc, so being hungry is never a problem for a Gramercy resident. There are also a lot of Indian restaurants nearby, so this could present a great opportunity for those wishing to expand their food tasting experience. Unfortunately, the area does not have many places to go out other than a couple of decent bars, but that can be made up for by the convenience of Gramercy's location in NYC as well as the ease of travel from the area. The Gramercy park is a beautiful place, but the entrance is only allowed to those who live in the area surrounding the park. Overall, due to the convenience of the area combined with safety and abilities to explore a decent amount of establishments nearby Gramercy is a great neighborhood to choose for residence in Manhattan. I would recommend it to anyone, especially college students. <<less

At first glance, East 18th Street seems to have it all. It's far north enough to avoid the raucous antics of the NYU students largely populating the ever-less-edgy East Village, but it's still only a stone's throw from Union Square, one of the city's most pleasant commercial meccas - with an annual Christmas bazaar, a farmers' market, and plenty of record and used-book stores dotting the side streets in the area.
