Stuyvesant Town has a below average violent crime rate and an average property crime rate for New York City.

  what's this neighborhood like?

You could say that Stuyvesant Town (or just 'Stuy Town' to locals) is some of the most coveted real estate in New York. In 2006 this 80-acre complex of apartments was sold for USD $5.4 billion to a real estate firm and its partners. Then in 2015 it sold again to a private equity giant for $5.3 billion. Clearly, companies want to own this piece of land.

Stuyvesant Town was built as middle class housing just after World War II. There are 110 residential buildings that also include basic necessities like dry cleaners and pharmacies. Parks, playgrounds, and sports courts are interspersed between the buildings. This is an exclusively residential complex but you'll find plenty of shops and restaurants along its borders.

Stuyvesant Town is bordered on the north by Kips Bay, on the east by the East River, on the south by the East Village, and on the west by Gramercy Park.
