Kips Bay is rich in red brick flat complexes and corporate comforts like Starbucks. You’ll never stray far from familiarity in this manageable and convenient neighbourhood. Kips Bay feels stunningly residential, even against the backdrop of New York City streets. Pet-friendly, people-friendly, and surprisingly wallet-friendly in an infamously expensive city, Kips Bay keeps quiet and lets its neighbours (like Murray Hill) do the talking.See places to stay Save this neighbourhood
