Stuyvesant Town Reviews
Stuyvesant Town is a welcoming neighborhood. You are isolated from the loud city streets, yet only a few minutes away from New York's bustling downtown. I have always felt safe living here because there are families everywhere. While the prices are quite high, the vibe of this neighborhood is unique compared to other areas in the city.
I live in Stuyvesant Town which looks like a project area but it is the best place to live in the city. You feel like you are in the suburbs with the way the buildings are set up but you can walk 5 minutes and you will be immersed in the cultures of the east village, union square, etc.
I would choose to live here again. Very convenient, diverse and plenty of access to outdoor play.
