Hi all - Looking for recommendations on where to live in NYC. Few things Im looking for: - looking for diversity in general; lived in Boston suburbs and felt like it was way too homogeneous - we’re a korean family with young kids; really enjoy/appreciate korean culture/food/etc - looking for great public school district (perhaps most important) as kids are kindergarten age - SO works in Queens; I’ll likely work in Manhattan (to the extent commute matters) Thanks in advance for any thoughts!!
