    Little Neck

    • Neighborhood in New York City, NY
    • 12 reviews
    Current Resident:Growing up, I never understood the special nature of my neighborhood. Few cars traveled the streets at night and many of my neighbors stayed within the confines of their houses on most days. However, as I explored other neighborhoods, I came to appreciate the stunning visual aesthetic as well as the tranquility of Little Neck. Streets are wide; green trees line the sidewalks; and almost everything you could ever need is within reach: school, library, deli, supermarket, department store, etc. Little Neck truly is an ideal suburban neighborhood to live in and hopefully my own children can enjoy the same luxuries I did someday.

    Battery Park City

    • Neighborhood in New York City, NY
    • 7 reviews
    Current Resident:The parks, the activities, the views , the schools, the convenience, and now the stores and restaurants are all reasons to love BPC. Every neighborhood in NYC may have downsides - you give up something - parks for restaurants or schools for convenience - not in BPC. Love it here!
