I've lived in Kips Bay for my entire life. While there is some gentrification and housing for minorities could definitely be improved, everything is within convenience; food markets, schools, delis, movie theaters, parks, bars, restaurants, gyms, etc.

Moved to the area for internship related work, as it was the most affordable for the area and cut my commute to a fraction of the usual time. Families are always around, local grocery stores minutes away, everything at the palm of your hands.
Kips Bay is a fast-paced environment with loads of diversity. You can meet people from all over the world.Literally.
