wtf?


You scored as Chelsea. Chelsea is an area in Lower Manhattan west of Park Avenue from about 30th Street to about 14th Street which includes the Flatiron District. It's well known as a gay friendly area. It's also really hip and upscale. It's great place to shop for things for the home. If there is some kind of new innovative soap dish out you're bound to find it here. There are a lot of good places to eat... but, the prices can be a little high.

The bartenders in this area are some of the best in the city and they know how to make everything. When some new drink comes out you can bet it came from Chelsea!

The only draw back is the entire place is crawling with yuppies. But if you’re a yuppie that’s probably OK.

Thanks for taking my test! -Susan

Okay, New Yorkers and/or NY Expatriates:
while the idea that I'd be all about Chelsea is hardly shocking, is it just me or is the absence of Greenwich Village from this quiz sort of peculiar?
  • hm

    You scored as Inwood. Inwood is located on the northern tip of Manhattan. Inwood extends from 200th St (Dyckman St) to 220th Street. It is banked on all three sides by huge wild parks.

  • Extremely weird, the absence thing. I'd say the quiz maker isn't a native, heh.
  • I'm suprised it just didn't say "why are you even taking this quiz? you should live in Madison, WI." based on my answers. But I got Inwood.
  • You scored as Upper West Side/ Morningside Heights. The UWS may not be as tweedy and artsy as it was in the era of the Trillings and Podhoretzes (some argue that it has turned into the Upper East Side), but the neighborhood is still home to artists, actors, and writers, and not just in Jerry Seinfeld’s income bracket.

    Morningside Heights is the area by Columbia university west of Harlem.

    Yeah, Greenwich Village... and possibly some kind of Gramercy Park-ish type representation (less so).

    Z

    P.S.: As a stuyvesant alum (before they moved the school to Battery Park City, that is), the neighborhood that I've spent the most time in/next to is Stuy Town, but that scored pretty low on my list.
    • Stuy Town, just 'cause

      You scored as Stuyvesant Town. Scary... scary scary... No these are not housing projects... it was some kind of modernist thing... There are no delis... no place to eat... just mute brick towers and lots of grass.
