Bed Stuy isn’t where you’re going if you want to “go out,” but if you’re there you can find a few gems like Saraghina, which serves awesome brick-oven pizza; The Hot House for delicious fried chicken and Southern treats; and Casablanca Cocktail Lounge, a local dive that keeps reinventing itself each generation.

Who lives here: The neighborhood is made up of predominantly old-school New Yorkers who were born and raised there.

It is the second-largest African-American neighborhood in the country after the city of Detroit.

The neighborhood has a lot to offer and is super convenient as far as getting to Midtown, the West Village, and the Meatpacking/High Line.

But the over-gentrification has pushed a lot of small businesses away.

8th Ave used to be a hub for the gay community, but many shops, restaurants, and bars have been pushed out by high rent and replaced with commercial/sterile chains and banks. Public transit situation: The heart of the East Village is the 6 at Astor Pl or the N, R at 8th St.

It’s still a great place to live, but I miss the charm of old Chelsea.” ? But it is possible to walk to Union Square from almost anywhere in the East Village, putting you near the L, 4,5,6, N, Q, and R.

Public transit situation: 6th Ave is the main artery of Chelsea, so you’ll be reliant on the B, D, F, or M trains.

But Chelsea also extends West toward 8th Ave, so you can easily take the A, C, E wherever you need to go.

The locals who live here have seen it change dramatically as hipsters and international travelers slowly carve out their own niches.

Average one-bedroom rent: $2,000/mo Bar and restaurant scene: Still pretty limited.

There are SO many neighborhoods in NYC, and if you’re not from here, it’s impossible to tell the difference between them.
