The Financial District is the fastest-growing residential neighborhood in Manhattan. Because just about all train lines converge down there, it is extremely convenient for getting almost anywhere in the city. In fact, the new Fulton Hub, which is under construction and coming along nicely will bring over a dozen train lines under one roof, making it an extraordinarily convenient neighborhood.

Hi Sarah, The Upper East Side is not only a straight shot on local and express subway lines to Lower Manhattan, it also offers the best value per square footage. You can easily find a 2-bedroom with a budget of $3500. As for finding a good school, I also suggest using a third party site and is a great resource.

I was thinking more of a commuter town, we have three children and two dogs. I just don't know the difference between living in ny vs. nj.
