I lived very close to Hells Kitchen on 54th and 9th. I loved it.. great area to live. Accessible to tons of cool places, subways, the river and the park. 9th ave has a lot of good bars and restaurants.
Id also consider the upper east side. Buddies lived 89th and 2nd and I thought it was a cool area
