Prospect Heights has 'richest' look in New York City


According to a recent article in the NYPost:
Prospect Heights is the Big Apple’s richest-looking neighborhood, according to a new study that asked non-New Yorkers to rate neighborhoods based on Google Street View images.
The brownstone-lined neighborhood ranked No. 1 on a list of “perceived” affluence compiled by MIT researchers.
It topped more than 50 other neighborhoods, including the Upper East Side and Midtown.
Neighbors think they know why.
“There’s so many trees and flower gardens everywhere. I think it looks like a very expensive neighborhood,” said Claire Ramos, a 30-year-old yoga instructor.
