Apartments For One: What NYC Neighborhoods Are Best For Singles?

At a certain level, the question of which Manhattan neighborhood is best for singles is kind of a silly one. Silly because, New York being New York, just about every Manhattan neighborhood is a pretty good Manhattan neighborhood in which to be single. But, of course, there are degrees of goodness -- which means that singles hunting for their own NYC studios or one-bedroom apartments might do well to check out a new study from the New York Daily News that uses a simple formula to ascertain which Manhattan neighborhoods are best for solo NYC apartment-hunters. Besides, you know, all of them. "Factors that played an important role in ranking these neighborhoods are the numbers of restaurants, bars, nightclubs, health clubs, culture, the population of young people in the area, median age and crime figures," Jason Sheftell explains in the Daily News. "Education, family-oriented factors and price were not heavy factors, although affordability was considered."

From Non-Neighborhood To Neighborhood: Meet NoMad, The Rising Murray Hill-ish 'Hood North of Madison Square Park

NoMad Murray Hill Luxury CondosIf you browse the Manhattan apartment listings at New Construction Manhattan, you won't find anything under "NoMad." You'll find apartments for sale in Murray Hill and Gramercy Park condos for sale, but nothing on apartments for sale in NoMad. This is not an oversight -- until brokers slapped a name on the area just north of Madison Square Park in what's generally thought of as Murray Hill, NoMad didn't exist. But this is more than the usual Fun With Contractions NYC real estate name game -- the stretch of Murray Hill that we'll now (somewhat grudgingly) call NoMad is indeed on the rise, whatever one chooses to call it. (Not to pat ourselves on the back too much, but we wrote about this back in August) With a feature in the Wall Street Journal touting the new semi-neighborhood's transition into a full-on neighborhood, though, NoMad has gotten its imprimatur as a Manhattan neighborhood to watch. Which is to say that you'd better get used to that name, like it or not.
