Anyone out there have what I would call the most balanced and unbiased ideas on the neighborhood boundaries in NYC. If you live in a sub-neighborhood (Carnegie Hill in the UES) which one would you categorize as where you live? I know the club scene in Manhattan is dispersed, but what area would you consider a substantial club strip, not counting that st.
And, if you ask three New Yorkers as to what is any given neighborhood, you're likely to get five different answers.
Greenwich Village and what is called the West Village are generally thought of as one neighborhood, as Greenwich Village is west of Broadway.
NoHo is not the East Village, it divides Greenwich Village from the East Village, save for the northernmost of the Villages which do meet. Chinatown now extends to around Chambers in the South, Broadway to the West, and there's debate as to how far above Canal that the district exists today, since some think that it has encroached and eroded Little Italy. I find that a lot of people who don't live in Manhattan don't even know the names of most of the neighborhoods and say they're going to a certain street, or refer to it as uptown, midtown, and downtown. Little Italy: From Grand to Canal only including Mulberry and Mott sts, then above Grand it is goes from the Bowery to Lafayette (Nolita).

Men in bowler hats are seen packing the platform of the Old Grand Central Station, today's 42nd Street Shuttle train platform, in 1905.
New York City's subway is already known for being one of the world's oldest public transit systems. But now remarkable black and white footage taken 108 years ago while coursing the same tracks taken by today's 8.5 million weekly riders shows just how much, as well as how little, it's changed. Filmed in 1905 a€” one year after the Interborough Rapid Transit Company's construction a€” the astonishing video follows an IRT subway car as it travels underground from Union Square to the old Grand Central station. Men walking with bowler caps and canes are seen packing the platforms as several women in floor-length gowns and robust floral hats mix in between. Remarkably still, the 5-minute video captures the same route and subway stops taken by the 6 train today up until its final stop at the 42nd St.
A postcard shows what the 14th Street subway station, seen as the first stop in the video, looked like after opening in 1904.
That platform, so exquisitely seen in the video, is still used today but for the shuttle train that runs exclusively between Grand Central and Times Square. Approximately 40 seconds into the video the train travels past the 18th Street subway, seen here one year before the film in 1904.


In all six stations are seen in the video, four of which it completely stops at to let on and off its elegantly dressed passengers. Of the film's particular highlights, outside of obvious dress and cleanliness, is the train's mysterious 18th street stop seen exactly 40-seconds in. This local stop was decommissioned in 1948 with the city choosing to shutter it after WWII instead of enlarging it like the others to accommodate more passenger cars. Today 6-train passengers are said to still be able to see this lonely, abandoned station by looking out their train's side windows. The dark platform - never given unusual or artistic features to it like so many others - is also visible from the 4 and 5 trains, if no local train blocks the view. Perhaps the most famous is City Hall which features magnificent vaulted glass ceilings and chandeliers that can still be seen through the 6 train's windows. City Hall Station, not seen in the video, is possibly the most famous station that has sat idle since its closing due to its vaulted glass ceilings that can still be seen through the 6 train's windows.
