I don't know, my girl has a diamond so I can't test the line out.

I lived at 39 E. 68th St. ( between Madison and Park ) quite inexpensively in a huge 4 story town home.

Of course that was 40 years ago and there was more to the story.

I lived in middle town east for a year, very convenient in terms of going to other places, but otherwise a bit dead (fantastic japanese food there by the way).

I lived in 109th and Madison the first year, might as well be East Harlem. upper 80s and 90s have a lot 20 years old, but it's not where they hang out for real.

the lower east side fucking blows. You could take a look at tribeca, but you won't get a big place.

Not much to do in the upper 80s and 90s on the East side. I guess you could hang out at those bars down near 83rd, etc.. Molly Pitchers, Dorians, and other places i have never been to. There are a lot of hot trashy women there during weekends.

I lived at 103rd and Lexington a couple of years ago. Trendy during the day and scary at night. Would not go with East Harlem. A lot of gang violence over there.

Stay below 96th street if on the East side.

West side is a different story. You can either stay south of Teachers College or North of Yeshiva University IMO.

on the East side, the difference between 96th street and 98th street can be pretty staggering when the sun goes down.

As far as violence goes, I actually have not seen any during the 2 years I was there. My building was few of the new ones around there, neighborhood were, well what it is. I don't personally find it a problem. Moved to mid town east after that. If you're going to take a chick home, 109 and madison is indeed a bit, hum..., but wasn't really a problem for me. It was definitely after I moved to mid-town east, for one, scenery looks a lot better...

There were tons of shootings where I lived. Some gang from the East River Projects. I think the shootouts were common where I lived because of gang members seeing each other at the 6 train station (@103rd). When I used to come home from school late at night the police officers would tell me that I should move to another neighborhood.

Stuff like this...


Manhattan

* A 25-year-old man was shot dead yesterday in East Harlem.

The victim, whose name is withheld pending family notification, was shot in the chest and legs on East 104th Street and Lexington Avenue after he got into a fight, police said.

"I heard five shots, silence, then screaming and crying," said a witness.

The victim, who is believed to be the intended target, was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital where he was pronounced dead. No arrests were made.

Over near Columbia is pretty nice.

The East side above 96th street can be pretty scary at times. The West side is pretty good up until Teachers College (i think 120th) but stay more towards the West side. The area that is directly North of Central Park isn't so great.

One of my friends is looking for someone to move into his apt for $3000.  He lives in Hell's Kitchen.

If you still need a spot, I'll put you in touch.  His name is Anthony Keeney- you can prob find him on FB.
