One may hear the terms "suburban" and "New York City" in the same sentence and think "You're kidding, right?" . What many don' t know is that it IS possible to escape the hustle and bustle of the city while living right in Manhattan.
While the area around Madison Square Garden (MSG), located on West 31st to 33rd Streets between 7th and 8th Avenues) does have many of these types of restaurants, there are plenty of other tasty options that would make for a great pre-game or concert meal
Thus far, the neighborhoods we visited on the 7 train tour have been diverse, yet ethnic group settlement patterns have been hard to define. 74th Street and 82nd Street stations comprise Jackson Heights.
For tennis players living in New York City, finding any court to play on can be challenging. While looking for tennis courts often feels like facing an opponent who has match point; it's not game, set, and match quite yet.
It goes without saying that New York City is an eating and drinking mecca. The 7 train does not disappoint. Given the diverse population, there are hundreds of authentic, affordable ethnic eateries up and down the line.
In NYC, the options available within the bar scene are endless. Any individual should be able to find a bar to their liking. However, after a night of drinking, the issue of a long commute back home often arises.
As a whole, NYC residential neighborhoods have grown up and progressed into the 21st century with ease. However, I find one neighborhood in particular to be an exception to this rule: Brooklyn Heights.
Reflecting on my memories of my time spent on the Upper West Side leads me to the following conclusion on the neighborhood: it is an area full of activity and a terrific community to go to grade school in.
