Prospect Heights ranked among top ten livable neighborhoods in NYC

Posted: April 13, 2010 - 12:00am

Although it may not come as a surprise to its residents, Prospect Heights was named by New York magazine among the top ten in its survey of most livable neighborhoods in New York City. The survey profiles fifty neighborhoods in terms of housing cost, transit, shopping, safety, restaurants, schools and diversity, among other factors. The survey found Prospect Heights particularly strong in nightlife (10th) and restaurants (17th), and fifth with respect to diversity of its residents, something most all of us would agree makes ours a great neighborhood and a great community.
