If you're looking to move to an NYC neighborhood where you can live a healthy lifestyle, then a new report says you may want to consider moving to East Flushing! Or, you know, just somewhere in the suburbs because why not.

Real estate site Trulia released a new set of "Live Well" maps today that help house hunters find the best neighborhoods to live an active and healthy lifestyle in various cities. The three sets of criteria that they took into consideration for the maps were quiet streets, great places to play (playgrounds, parks etc.) and the number of hospitals and care facilities in the near vicinity. Apparently, being close to an actual working farm was just an added bonus.

Based on those factors, East Flushing (which, to reiterate, is even further east than Flushing) was judged to be the best place to live in New York. The other two NYC neighborhoods that made the top 50 for large cities were Dyker Heights (hanging Christmas lights is great exercise) and Murray Hill (so is running away from post-collegiate frat bros.)
