Can someone give me a description of the certain areas of Manhattan and Brooklyn?

I am planning on moving to NYC and just want to know certain facts about the areas of Manhattan and Brooklyn. For example, Manhattan: Upper East and West Side, Chelsea, Mid-Town, Lower East and West Side, Financial. Brooklyn: DUMBO, Williamsburg, etc. If you could explain which areas are safe, what age group mostly lives there, housing, the aesthetic of the area and possibly, which area you would recommend for me (22 year old in the Fashion Industry, likes to go out to clubs, but more into book stores, museums and parks, low-key things.) Thanks Ok, I get thats alot to ask, but I have bought like 2-3 books on NYC and they dont tell whats real as of now and I basically just wanna know what areas are safe and based on the description I gave what area would fit that.

I'll just say that to fit the description you have given us, I would head for the upper east side, I think you would be comfortable there, it is very pretty ..... old money, lovely side streets, shops, good transportation, full of museums and easy access to Central Park x

Well, Goodache was so nice to mention me as someone who knows a lot about Brooklyn (and I do), but I'm embarrassed to say that I really don't know as much about either Williamsburg or Dumbo, other than the fact that once Dumbo was rather industrial and Willamsburg was an ethnic enclave for Italians and Chasidim. Both... More
