Where Should You Live In New York City~~~Park Slope is usually caricatured as a neighborhood full of yuppies with small children, & well, to some extent that’s true. It’s a lovely, well-rounded & safe area, & an ideal place to settle down. (It was ranked the best neighborhood in the city by New York Magazine.) There’s plenty of restaurants, & cool little shops, & as far as parks in NYC go, Prospect Park is second only to Central Park. Also recommended: Gowanus, Windsor Terrace, Sunset Park.
