On what basis are we ranking? If it's livability, the Bronx is obviously last. If it's affordability, clearly Manhattan is last.

Each of the boroughs is so diverse that it's impossible to rank them, but I'd probably prefer to live in Brooklyn, get a cheap place in Bed-stuy before it gets gentrified. It's amazing how in just 2 blocks you can go from a scene where all you see is well-dressed trendy young people having expensive drinks out on the sidewalk to a scene you'd expect out of the poorest place in any American city.

The Bronx also is much safer than people give it credit for, and it's the borough I'd be second most likely to live in. What white guy wouldn't cherish the opportunity to be not only a racial minority, but not even speak the majority language?

You know, there are plenty of areas in The Bronx that are just fine. The South Bronx doesn't speak for the entire borough.

Why's that?  Too many "wops"? 

Are you from New York?

But there's nowhere in the Bronx which is nicer than anywhere in Manhattan, Brooklyn or Queens (only a slight exaggeration).

Anyway:

1. Manhattan
2. Brooklyn
7. Queens
94. The Bronx
11259. Staten Island

I haven't been to NYC since the 1980s, but I hear every last bit of it has been ruined by Julianie and the law-and-order crowd.  Not that it was that great in the first place, but NYC ala Taxi Driver was interesting.

I'm curious to know what everyone is basing their opinions on, and for that matter, how many have ever been to each of the five boroughs, or any of the boroughs at all.

1. Manhattan- thinking of moving here. I always piss away loads of money when I head here tho
2. Queens- born and spent my first years here.
3. Brooklyn- mixed bag.  Opinion varies from neighborhood.
4. Staten Island- too many wops;)
5. Da Bronx= home of the Yankees

I've been to all five and I love Staten Island for the same reasons most hate it, its not NYC.  Manhattan has a lot to do, but I can't stand the crowds and unability to get around by car.  Queens is awesome, but it has some bad areas.  Ther really number 1 answer is the NYC burbs

Is a tiny sliver of the Bronx. Much like judging Staten Island based on Tompkinsville would be a big mistake. (I did say it was a slight exaggeration.)

I've been to all of them although I'm considerably more familiar with The Bronx and Manhattan than I am with the other three.
