This is, hands down, The Coziest Neighbourhood of NYC. Its like a fairytale small town situated in one of the worlds largest cities and with an intimate atmosphere like no other. When you get here it really feels like you are somewhere totally different than the rest of NYC.
The walkable streets are lined with not only the classic brownstone houses with its front stoops – just like in the films – but also with quaint shops, trendy cafés and lovely neighbourhood restaurants.
This is a place where you want to live and when you stay in any of the nice hotels that I recommend, you are guaranteed to have an enjoyable experience. There is only one risk: not wanting to leave the area at all!
