NYC residents - what's your favorite borough?

Recommended Posts

I like Queens, I've lived here all my life, although my birthplace was in Mineola, I was raised out here from the start, first living along Hillside Avenue in Jamaica, then moving to Fresh Meadows, and finally Flushing!

My least favorite borough is Queens, only for the reason of its Horrible traffic on its highways. But Manhattan is #1 Everytime I tell someone I'm from manhattan they 'wow' me.

Manhattan makes no. 2 on my list. There's a lot of areas I want to explore in Manhattan one day. I haven't been to the East Side area as much so one day I'll head out there. S.I. comes no. 1 on my list though cuz of the hills. Steep slopes = one very happy skateboarder B)

Technically, I was born in Manhattan but Brooklyn takes the cake. Then comes Manhattan, then Queens, then Staten Island and Bronx

One day, follow the S61 route from the ferry terminal to the mall; trust me, you will NOT be disappointed! There are a lot of huge downgrades, especially as you get closer to the mall.

My favorite borough is Brooklyn! I've lived here all my life. One of my parents live in Flatbush while the other lives in Cypress Hills. I love these neighborhoods, esp Cypress Hills, in which so many memories took place and continue to grow there. (I had my first gf there, she was Puerto Rican and had one of the most beautiful eyes I've ever seen. I miss her. B) )

The Battle of the Boroughs continues!

 

Brooklyn is my favorite, since it has such variety: Coney Island, Brooklyn Bridge, The Transit Museum, and Caesar's Bay Mall. And the (NX) line!

What's so bad above 125 street? Nowadays you would likely be asked for directions by some white boy hipster/yuppy then mugged by "ghetto" people since Washington Heights and nothern Harlem is sadly gentrifying, Inwood on the other hand has always been 'safe.'
