The map shows where residents in New York and surrounding areas believe are the best places to live. Areas such as Connecticut and New Jersey are also shown. Top areas are in purple and green, with less-desired areas in red.
The most desired areas tend to be in the south parts of the state, while more affordable homes are in the north regions.
Median house prices in New York are $603,991, meaning New York homes are much more expensive than the US median of $376,286. We analyzed a significant sample of states with similar populations like Florida and Illinois, and found homes in New York cost much more.
These are the best neighborhoods as judged by the market: the places people most want to live. While these areas tend to have lower crime rates and higher quality of life, it is primarily a map of the best areas by median home value in New York.
In regards to housing disparity, the quality of neighborhood within New York varies moderately.
