I’m a zip code snob and is considering moving to a trendy neighborhood (on 120k salary).

What are the trendy areas for girls in the following cities?

- NYC
- Miami
- Chicago

For example: I know The Loop is trendy in Chicago and Hell’s Kitchen in NYC

      Plz. The entire customer success team at my old company were 20-something women making $80k. They went to equinox and worked out no less than 2 hours a day to hopefully bag a nice hedgefund portfolio manager or something.

    You can’t afford to be a ZIP code snob on $120k. Big cities eat that salary for breakfast and demand more by lunch.

    You’re up against lawyer couples and entrepreneurs. You’ll get crumbs, and you’ll have to eat them out on the front porch.

      Couples making $200-400k, “power couples” - the dual income part really sucks as a single person.

      You might be able to eke our the ZIP code of your choice if you’re not a neighborhood snob. Are you 100% against a roommate?

    Dumbo is really nice but expensive. I used to live there and everyone who visited loved it. Girls got their pretty parts wet when they realized I lived alone in my apt on 40th floor.

    If you really need to be in Manhattan, well, then you’re not all that trendy anyway.

    Hell’s Kitchen has some clubs but it’s a shit hole to live in. Construction everywhere. Chelsea near the Google office has some nice apartments and the area is nice too.

      Most of the neighborhoods that New Yorkers think of as trendy are in Brooklyn, not Manhattan.

      It’s trendy because it’s beautiful, entire NYC is easily accessible, you have a perfect view of Manhattan, it’s quiet (if you don’t live right next to the trains), no stress, no traffic.

      I believe the most expensive apartment in NYC was recently sold in Dumbo.

      If you’re a Manhattan type of girl then go to Chelsea or something.

      I doubt you can afford a place in SoHo but you would probably like it there. Middle of it all, close to shopping, all fashionable people hang around there during summers... But you’ll hate the tourists, traffic, and sidewalks.

    I would recommend a psychiatrist to get over the zip code snob and related validation. That you need . It will help you in the long run and save you a lot of money

    Don’t get me wrong, Hells Kitchen is a nice neighborhood. Trendy is just not how I would describe it.

    Here’s what most real New Yorkers love about New York - each neighborhood has a unique character that is wonderful in its own right. There’s something for everyone.

    The question is, what kind of vibe are you looking for? Artsy? Edgy? Preppy? Old school character? New shiny and modern?

      Not OP but where would you say is the old school character?

      @fWPm00 Brooklyn Heights, Carroll Gardens, Upper West Side, West Village. Old school + old money is Upper East Side.

    Not sure what you mean by trendy. Williamsburg is what some yuppies consider trendy. It has a lot of restaurants, bars and boutiques and a few mysic venues. Young, creative types tend to be in Bushwick where there are more indie music venues and hip second hand clothing stores. West Village is probably good for celebrity sightings but expensive. There's a lot of development in Long Island City so it's becoming more popular for young professionals. Amazon is also moving there.

      Though FYI the L train, which is the main subway line in and out of Williamsburg, is shutting down for construction in 2019, so many people are moving out.

      LIC is the next big thing. Williamsburg is meatpacking 2.0 with shit transit.

      Meatpacking 2.0 is a good way to put it but some people like it :shrug:

    120k in NYC? Don’t worry about trendy, first try to find safe neighborhood that you can afford, unless you are willing to share 2 bedroom with 5 roommates

      Oh come on, that’s a bit dramatic. New York is pricey, yes, so you won’t be living the high life on $120k, but assuming you don’t bleed money in other parts of your life, you can totally live in a nice neighborhood in New York.

      Nice neighbor, absolutely. Trendy? Only if you ok spending every penny. But if you want to start saving
      (401k etc) 120k won’t get you very far.

    What do YOU think is trendy? Because clearly there’s a divergence between what you’re expecting and... what many New Yorkers think of as trendy.
