One of the hottest places to live in the United States is New York, of course! Being a local moving company, we at Diving Moving have explored every corner of the city. Here we have compiled a detailed list of where and why these destinations are the best places to live in New York.
Often written as TriBeCa (an anagram-matic combination of the terms The triangle below canal st is consistently ranked among the neighborhoods with the highest quality of life, and for obvious reasons. It has the lowest rate of crime in all of Manhattan, next to Nolita/Little Italy; however, in terms of its intangibles, it pulls far ahead from not only Little Italy, but indeed from the rest of the pack, coming in as one of the best neighborhoods in Manhattan. Within its borders are located three separate universities, an endless, beautiful waterfront, and apartments in converted industrial buildings that would meet the dreams of every hipster. Notwithstanding, the concentration of celebrities is enormous: seeing characters such as Jay Z and Scarlett Johanson walking by on a daily basis is pretty normal. However, Tribeca is exorbitantly expensive, and consequently it remains a quality match for only those of us that can already afford a yacht.
Lower East Side
In one statement, epitomizes New York. In the daytime, it serves as a major restaurant destination, with some of the biggest names in culinary arts residing in the area. After sunset, though, Lower East Side shows its true colors: it transforms into a bustling nightlife mecca, with raging dance clubs, live music, and attractions such as the Bowery Ballroom. Throughout the area, contemporary art museums are prevalent, and an active community of artists, musicians, and performers reside here. Apartment rentals are reasonably priced, the shopping options are eclectic, and the nights are long. Come here if you are looking for a good time, stay here if it looks like this is where you want to start a new life.
Fascinated with 18th century Italianate and Romanesque Revival architecture? Looking for an artsy, small-town feel in the biggest city in the United States? We’ve found the place for you.

Its intimate and residential atmosphere, combined with its high concentration of artists and parks, makes this a faultless location to raise a family. And if one may be worried about seeing a few hippies stumbling down the sidewalks at two in the morning, don’t be: they’re part of the charm.
Yes, we know it’s a surprise, a tiny neighborhood eponymously named after the beautiful private park it surrounds, possesses the highest ratio of trees-to-people outside of Central Park. Composed largely of Victorian townhouses, Gramercy is an isolated wonderland: if someone can afford it to live in one of the best neighborhoods in Manhattan. Two bedroom condominiums can range around $6,500 a month to rent, and let’s just say the average income is well above the national, or even the Manhattan average.
