I lived here for a short time and I felt safe here. I could always get clothes dry-cleaned and the views of the river are pretty nice. I liked to go for a walk with my Lab puppy in the park where I usually met people who were there for a similar reason. I ended up moving to Park Slope though -just liked the lower cost of rent and had some friends moving in. Kips Bay is nice though.

Kips Bay is fine. There’s no shopping and all I can get to is the 4/6 train. It is inexpensive for Manhattan though and it’s close to the East Village, which rules. I don’t live here because it is a perfect neighborhood but because it is a cheap alternative to moving to Brooklyn.Alice T.
