Gramercy-Flatiron ranked number one on the top-10 list of New York neighborhoods that are best for singles, compiled by the Daily News, based on nightlife, population of young people, income, crime and affordability. In Gramercy-Flatiron, home to 34,000 people, the median house price is $525,000, and the area “has everything a single person could want,” if you can afford it, according to the Daily News. More than 73 percent of the people rent and over 75 percent of the population is single. Its location is also a draw. “Perfectly positioned between Midtown and downtown Manhattan, the Gramercy-Flatiron area has some of the best restaurants, bars, and local services in the city,” the Daily News said. In second place on the list was the East Village, followed by the Hunters Point neighborhood in Long Island City. Rounding out the top five were Wall Street and BAM, the area around the Brooklyn Academy Music, which straddles Downtown and Fort Greene. [NYDN]
