Time Out has a roundup of the best places to live in our fair city, broken down into categories. Shopaholic? Try moving to Williamsburg, where art books, vintage clothes, records, wine and computer parts are in vast supply. Carroll Gardens, by the way, was runner up. Coney Island turned up the best street culture, meshing Russian immigrants and sideshow workers, what they call "ethnic New York and honky-tonk New York." No word on whether the street culture will hold now that Astroland is gone and the fate of Coney Island is in the balance as Thor Equities figures out how to reinvent it. Finally, for the LOHAS dark green eco-fanatics, the neighborhood of choice is Park Slope, what with the food co-op, the big ole park and the high recycling rates (27.1%, though it's second to Tribeca's 27.9%).
