If you're thinking about moving to Akron, and you want that East Village feeling...



There's a new tool at HomeThinking that compares Manhattan neighborhoods with neighborhoods in dozens of other cities, from Akron (Ohio!) to Woodinville (Washington!). (The tool only provides the names of neighborhoods -- it doesn't offer recommendations on, say, bars, coffee shops, etc.) Oh, and if you really want to have some fun, compare Manhattan neighborhoods with far-flung locales like Brooklyn! (For the record, the East Village, according to HomeThinking, is like Boerum Hill, Park Slope and Fort Greene.) And see the amazing list of Manhattan locales that are a little bit like Brownsville.

Maybe that's why they moved to the East Village, so that they can have that Highland Square/Downtown/ Summit Lake feeling.

Wonder if a 1BR in Summit Lake is going for $3,250 as well...
