Debating a move to UES from Greenwich Village, depending on where my daughter ends up in K (private). UES is a huge area and I'm wondering what the best pockets are in terms of ease of transportation, good restaurants, pretty and quiet blocks, etc. We are very spoiled in terms of location right now and I know nothing will compare to the buzz of downtown, but I'd love to find a neighborhood that I'd be down to live in for 10+ years. Am I right that anything east of 2nd Ave and north of 86th seems verrrrry sleepy and boring? Is being closer to the park worth being farther to the subway? Thanks, all!
