Given Manhattan’s diversity, neighborhoods within the borough are unique and fun to explore. Many neighborhoods are associated with New York’s so-called “Bohemian” subculture, created by the number of artists looking for their big break in the Big Apple. Neighborhoods rich with artistic influence include Greenwich Village, Alphabet City (made famous in the Broadway show “Rent”), the Lower East Side, and the East Village. These neighborhoods are complemented nicely by upscale areas such as: SoHo, the Upper East Side, and the Upper West Side, by far some of the wealthiest neighborhoods in the United States.
Other neighborhoods boast names that are indicative of those who’ve made their home there over the years. Little Italy, Chinatown and Koreatown are where most immigrants settled upon arriving from Europe and Asia. Chinatown is now home to one of the largest Chinese populations in America. Harlem, having experienced a renaissance of sorts in the late 20th century, is benefitting from renewed interest and is home to numerous theaters and other arts centers.

Nothing brings out who you really are like the home in which you live. But, it’s more than just your address. Where you live, the neighborhood, the rich culture and vibrant surroundings all make up the unique environment you call home. It’s the Sunday stroll to your favorite brunch spot, the after work drink at the local outdoor café or the Saturday afternoon spent window shopping. Corcoran understands this and has created a resource guide for whatever neighborhood you might be interested in.
From Zagat Survey restaurant, nightlife and shopping reviews to a directory of local schools and amenities to detailed Google maps, you can become neighborhood savvy before you even move in. It’s just another way you’ll find a place to live – and a place where you will come to life. Your home is more than just your address.
