Statician Nate Silver of FiveThirtyEight compiled a ranking of the best neighborhoods to live in New York City for New York Magazine. Based on various data sourced from a range of government and research institutions, the list breaks down quality of life factors like housing costs, schools, green space, transit, shopping & services, restaurants and even nightlife — the things you think about when evaluating a neighborhood. Somewhat surprisingly, Brooklyn's Park Slope was ranked "Most Livable" in NYC — just a hair above the more surprising second "most livable" Lower East Side. Check out the list — and the overall data collected — to see where your NYC neighborhood ranks: New York Magazine | The Best Places to Live in NYC.
