"Nice neighborhood just north of the Village"

The Flatiron District is a Manhattan neighborhood in the 20s that is named after the Flatiron Building. I'm in this area on almost a weekly basis, and I like it a lot. It's a fairly busy neighborhood, but I'm told the apartments are quite nice. And if you're a tourist, stroll around for the shopping and the architecture. I love the clock at 200 Fifth Avenue and the famous golden pyramid at the top of the Met Life Tower.

I do quite a lot of shopping on Sixth Avenue in this area. There's a mall that includes Bed Bath & Beyond and T.J. Maxx. You'll also find a Burlington Coat Factory, Old Navy, and Staples on Sixth Avenue, among many other stores. Fifth Avenue also has a wealth of great stores, although they tend to be pricier than the ones on Sixth Avenue. There are plenty of restaurants and other service businesses, too, like shoe repair places and nail salons.

The Flatiron District borders Gramercy Park and Chelsea, and it's just a few blocks from Union Square, which is a major hub in the southern part of Manhattan. The nightlife is a bit limited, but you're so close to Greenwich Village and other areas with happening nightlife that you don't need it right in the Flatiron District itself.
  • Great shopping
  • Interesting architecture
  • A bit on the commercial side
  • Nightlife limited

"Gramercy Park Delights"

East 21st street is home of Gramercy Park. One of my favorite parts of the city, a perhaps something that dispels a rumor or two, about living in the city. There are parks all over the place, some less than stellar, they do have Central Park to compete with, but some are beautiful. This is one of them. There was a ll kin of activity throughout the park and on the street, and coming from the Midwest, was a picture of what I imagined life in New York City would be like.

East 21st street is close to the following metro station: L at 14th st , and is accessible to many buses. Foot traffic is heavy and it is a good neighborhood for all kinds of people .
