And the best Brooklyn neighborhood to live in is….

Sure, Williamsburg may be the hood that gets all the attention lately, but North Brooklynites may be surprised to know that, according to Niche's recent "Best Places to Live" poll, it's not considered the best place to live within Brooklyn. DUMBO is. Believe it or not, Williamsburg didn't rank in the BK top 10 and didn't even crack the top 125 of neighborhoods citywide. Damn.

To determine rankings, the annual quality of life poll gave each area grades based on individual factors such as education, fitness, diversity, cost of living, nightlife, jobs, weather and crime pulling stats from the U.S. Bureau of Labor and Census as well as the Center for Disease Control.

DUMBO scored an overall A grade and came in fourth overall in the entire city behind only Tribeca, Battery Park City and Nolita in that order. Rounding out the top 10 were Kips Bay, FiDi, Murray Hill, Gramercy, SoHo and NoHo. See how your area stacked up and let's all get these numbers up, people!
