Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A Practical guidebook for house hunters, migrating apartment dwellers, and anyone curious abut life in 115 of New York's most livable neighborhoods and suburbs

For many people in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut, the real estate section of the Sunday New York Times is the first part of the newspaper they read each week. This book is drawn from one of the most popular features in that widely read section, "If You're Thinking of Living In . . . " Every week, the column gives a detailed snapshot of a suburban community in the tri-state area or a metropolitan neighborhood in New York City, enabling readers to clearly understand a new area and decide if it might be the right place for them to live.  

    

Now, these columns have been updated and edited into a valuable guidebook for anyone planning a move into the tri-state area or already living in the region and considering a move to another community, as well as for browsers who just enjoy this popular and informative feature.

  Will acquaint you with 115 metropolitan neighborhoods and suburban communities in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut

   Consists of illuminating profiles on each locale, including safety, housing, schools, transportation, cultural and recreational facilities, and quality of life

  Includes at-a-glance reference boxes that list such valuable data as median income of a community; median price of a single-family home, co-op, or condo; midrange rental rates; and commuting times and costs

  Highlights which communities have the strongest school districts

  Educates prospective home buyers on assessing the investment opportunities of purchasing real estate

Synopsis:

Compiled from "Time" magazine's popular feature of the same name, this book offers detailed information about 110 communities in the U.S., including proximity to mass transit, the cost and availability of housing, and the local crime rate.
