"I could probably eat shit everyday" - Kenny

Where in New York ?

Okay, so I tried this topic on the main board and it never got past deleted, so here goes...

Can anyone recommend some really great areas of New York to live ?

I tried searching for apartments on NYT, but I didn't know which area to select. I want it to be in a safe area, close to lots of good restaraunts, etc. Not cheap, but not five bed penthouse either.

I assume Joel lives in the city, so where would someone like Joel, a man of means, live ? I don't want to be Joel's neighbour, just using him as an example.

Depends almost entirely on your budget.

I thought Joel lived in the west 80's somewhere.

Thanks for the replies so far, keep em coming.

Budget would be about $4000 per month, maybe more.

Whitepages.com gives a specific address for a Joel Spolsky in that general area.

Ooh, rich. You could probably live just about anywhere in Manhattan for that (unless that's $4000 between two or more).

Personally, I'd choose to live in Greenwich Village. Nice cafes, bars, restaurants, jazz clubs, etc.

Ok, so I haven't been to NY, but personally I'd prefer to live in a neighborhood where I can get some sleep at night. Being surrounded by bars and other attractions doesn't seem very conducive.

Okay, Dennis, you're just being freaky.

Flasher - it's not sleep, so much as pass out.

Let's see if Sathy can come up with Joel's home phone number.

"Flasher - it's not sleep, so much as pass out."

My point exactly. After three years in a dorm, I am now overpaying for an apartment in a mostly detached house area at the edge of town, and loving it.

Colm, thanks for the reply, I'll check that area out.

Sathy - fetch! :D

Freaky? You gave a general area where Joel lives, and out of curiousity the public directories give one in the same area. Personally I don't give a flying sexual-liason where Joel lives, but that was the context of the discussion.
