There has never been a better time to be a single person living in New York City. There are so many apartments that are becoming available in hip neighborhoods. New bars, restaurants, galleries, and yoga studios are popping up everywhere you look. There’s always something new to explore in the Big Apple. You’re independent, young, and nothing is holding you back. If you’re single in New York City and hating it, you’re probably living in the wrong part of town. So, if you feel like you’re stuck in a rut, consider a change of scenery to one of these ten neighborhoods in NYC that boast characteristics seemingly catered to a life lived independently.
