"Most convenient part of Stuy Town"

Of all of the Stuy Town loops, the West one is probably the most convenient. It faces out to first avenue, so the L train is right at 14th and the green line is just an avenue over. None of the other loops have quite that access to the trains. It's also within a few blocks of a Trader Joes, Whole Foods, a number of pharmacies and a ton of deli's so food is a non issue. It's also perfectly centrally located between Gramercy, Flatiron and the East Village. You are a few blocks away from the serenity of Gramercy, the hullaballoo of the East Village and all of the commerce of Gramercy which makes your social and errand life kind of a breeze. Most parts of town don't have that kind of axis of fun.
The downers of living in the West loop come with the convenience, though. It can be quite loud and dirty here though definitely less sketchy than, say, the east loop. The units are a bit more expensive here than the east or north loops because of the popularity. But, all in all, if you want to live in Stuy Town, this isn't a bad loop to start looking around.

"desirable place to live"

First Avenue Loop is part of Stuyvesant Town, a nice housing development on the East Side. It tree-lined, with a park in the middle of the development. This is a very safe area, and Stuy Town even has its own security officers for added safety. There are several good schools nearby, and Beth Israel Med Center, which is convenient but can be noisy due to ambulances and traffic. This overall seemed to be a very nice place to live, an oasis in Manhattan.
