My Neighborhood

neighborhoodWhen people ask me where I live in Manhattan I say Columbus Circle but it’s partly true. I also live in Hell’s Kitchen, Clinton and Midtown West.  I love my neighborhood because it has the best of a lot of different neighborhoods.  We have access to Central Park, the Hudson River, and every subway you need.  The best part is the plethora of places to eat in every kind of cuisine you can imagine.  There are also a ton of things to do so I rarely get bored.  I love this neighborhood and it’s going to be hard to part ways with it one day.  These are my favorite neighborhood haunts.
