  • Comprising a sweeping 495 acres, Chelsea is not only one of New York’s largest neighborhoods, but also one of its more eclectic ones. Luxurious high rises, single townhouses, and large housing projects all blend with one another in this unique NYC neighborhood.

  • Named after the Flatiron Building on 23rd street, the Flatiron District boasts some of the more iconic NYC skyscrapers in the city, many of which were built over a hundred years ago. It’s not just a great place for aspiring architects to write their midterms, it’s also a great place for a rush of culture. And when you're ready to unwind, you can always take a stroll through Madison Square Park.

  • Home to Central Park and full of stunning historic architecture, the Upper East Side feels like a breath of fresh air compared to the rest of the city. It’s a great place to settle down, offering premiere private schools and an endless supply of playgrounds. Plus, there are countless iconic museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

  • If you love the pulse of the city but need your nature fix as well, then the Upper West Side may be right for you. It’s the perfect place to go for a walk, with plenty of green park space and public transportation. Plus, there's the Lincoln Center for all of your favorite cultural performances.

  • Midtown is where business meets pleasure in New York City: during the day, suits crowd the sidewalks while by night, Times Square overflows with entertainment. There are countless dining and shopping opportunities, from world-class department stores to hole-in-the-wall dive bars.

  • For a youthful vibe, head to Murray Hill, home to New York’s young professionals. Both buying and renting are more affordable in the area, with the median sales price of just $700,000 — well under the $1 million mark you’re probably used to seeing. And you might even get a view of the Empire State Building.

  • This family-centric neighborhood has it all, from Prospect Park to excellent schools. Plus, there’s a strong neighborhood commitment, making Park Slope a place where you can get to know your neighbors. There's even a community of resources for LGBTQ parents on the Park Slope Parents website.

  • Once a Jewish immigrant cultural hub, the Lower East Side has since transitioned into a multi-ethnic artist retreat and become the ideal home for hipsters on a budget. Opinions truly run the gamut here, as some people consider it quaint while others pulsing with life.

  • Since the 1960s East Village has been home to numerous artists, musicians, and students. Though much of New York is diverse, East Village is more so than others. Here you’ll find affordable housing, diverse restaurant choices, and numerous night scenes that attract multiple different groups of people.

  • Greenwich Village, or simply “the Village,” is one of the cultural centers of the world. It’s thought to be the cradle of the LGBT movement, and was even the birthplace of the Beat/Counterculture movement in the 1960s.

  • This NYC neighborhood gets better reviews year after year. Why? There’s so much to do here and you're close to the famous Wall Street Bull, Battery Park, and the new Brookfield Place to satisfy all your shopping needs. Young, on-the-move professionals should put this area on their shortlist while house hunting.

  • With cheaper rents, larger apartments, and a close proximity to Midtown, Harlem, and the Bronx, Astoria is one of NYC’s most sought after neighborhoods. Here you can forget the commutes and get yourself some elbow room for once.

Our latest reviews

"FlatRate was extremely efficient in our move from suburbs to city. They were on top of everything and definitely reduced our stress with moving. They also packed for us. Would highly recommend FlatRate.”

“FlatRate is the absolute best! They truly made our moving experience seamless. The movers came early, asked the right questions, and let us go grab breakfast while they loaded the truck. When we came back, they were almost done! Moving where I asked. For any future moves, I’ll be using Flat Rate!”

“We had a serious problem with moving our Steinway concert grand piano into a 34th floor apt of a modern midtown building. The original piano mover claimed it could not be done. But FlatRate Elite saved the day. They built a full-size, 3d mock-up and moved it into the apartment without a hitch. They took superb care in wrapping."

“We were extremely pleased with Flat Rate. They were extremely professional, thorough, careful and nice. Not a thing was damaged and when special teams were needed (to disassemble and put back together our couch) they were on time."
