Updated 8/20/2020 with additional neighborhoods and new listings.

When many of us are asked to name a favorite neighborhood in New York City, the choice is often made based on architecture, local attractions, and access to the rest of the city. But how often do we give thought to the neighborhood names that fall off our tongues with little effort? New York's rich history dates back to before the Revolutionary War, and this comes out throughout the city.

If you're taking this time to learn something new, read up on the areas where your post-quarantine chapters might take place. Certain listings show an extra touch of civic pride with buildings or streets named after their neighborhoods.

It’s common knowledge that the name Tribeca is a portmanteau of Triangle Below Canal Street. But a lot of people don’t know that it came about as local artists, inspired by their counterparts in Soho (see below), sought to legalize their live/work situation in the early 1970’s. The phrase was originally meant to apply to one triangular-shaped tax block (whose neighborhood has since been designated a historic district), but The New York Times thought it applied to the whole neighborhood and the name stuck. Before that, it was more commonly known as the Lower West Side or Washington Market, for its past as a food market.

Clinton-Hill-01 Clinton Hill brownstones via CityRealty
Clinton Hill is named in honor of DeWitt Clinton, who served as mayor of New York City, a state senator, and a two-term governor of New York. The “hill” part of the name is self-explanatory to residents - the area has an elevation of 95 feet!

For a while, a short stretch of Lafayette Street went from industrial to largely ignored. Then, as artists moved in and started using the buildings as live-work space, others took notice and started converting the industrial buildings to residential. Thus Noho, or "north of Houston Street" was born.

Red-Hook-01 All images via Douglas Elliman
Red Hook is enjoying a bit of a residential renaissance now, but has been of importance to Brooklyn since the Revolutionary War. The red soil at the point of South Brooklyn inspired part of its name, and the second part is the Anglicization of “hoek,” which is Dutch for “point.”

Flatiron-Building-01 Flatiron Building via CityRealty
When a triangular building took shape on Fifth Avenue and 23rd Street in 1902, it was originally dubbed the Fuller Building. However, its resemblance to a hot clothing iron inspired the more widely known name of the Flatiron Building. As the area became more residential in the 1980’s, the building would be the namesake of the district.

Sheephead Bay via VUE Brooklyn condominium
How did one frightening-looking fish give a neighborhood its name? The waters of an inlet of the Atlantic Ocean teemed with sheepshead saltwater fish to a point that set it apart from the nearby Brighton and Manhattan Beaches. Brownstoner notes that while sheepshead fish are no longer found in local waters, the area does have restaurants serving plenty of other seafood.

There are various theories on how this stretch of Midtown West got its name. Some trace it to a tenement on West 54th Street. Others think it came about from the gang activity and fetid industries, which created a less than welcoming atmosphere. One popular theory states that when someone described the place as hell during a riot, a policeman commented, “Hell’s a mild climate. This is hell’s kitchen.” What we know for sure is that some have endeavored to rechristen the area “Clinton,” but the old name has stuck.

When early British colonists arrived in this section of what is now Queens, they called their new home, um, Newtown. Decades later, as carriages and streetcars brought more people to the area, a developer lobbied for a more upscale name. Many of the area’s hills had elm trees, and “hurst” is an old English and Germanic word for “wooded hill.” (P.S. Some Elmhurst schools and streets still use the Newtown name.)

Park-Slope-01 Park Slope via Douglas Elliman
Prospect Park is instrumental in Park Slope's designation as one of New York's family-friendliest places, and it played an equally strong role in the naming of the neighborhood. The "slope" comes from the noticeable uphill when travelling from nearby Gowanus Canal to Prospect Park.

For many years, the Lower East Side was one large, working-class stretch of Lower Manhattan. But starting in the 1960's, an influx of artists and a new creative class moved in to create a distinct culture. Savvy business owners seized on its close proximity to the nearby Greenwich Village (see below), and a new neighborhood was born.

Lenox Hill via CityRealty
Between Bloomingdale's, a number of high-end restaurants and boutiques, the historic Lenox Hill Hospital, a residential building boom, and an abundance of new transportation options, it's hard to imagine Lenox Hill as being a quiet part of New York. And yet, in the early 19th century, what is now East 68th to 74th Streets between Park and Fifth Avenues was occupied by a 30-acre farm belonging to Robert Lenox, the namesake of the neighborhood to the east.

To pass by New York's only private park and the gracious townhouses surrounding it, one would think Gramercy has always been a well-tended neighborhood. However, the area was once known as "Krom Moerasje," the Dutch for "small crooked swamp." Years later, when it became the home of one of New York's first city planning attempts, the name was Anglicized to "Gramercy Seat," from an Old English word meaning "many thanks."

Williamsburg
Brooklyn has experienced quite a renaissance in recent years, but investors have always embraced the borough's potential. Exhibit A: In 1802, real estate investor Richard Woodhull purchased a stretch of a farming village known as Bushwick Shores and named it Williamsburgh, in honor of its surveyor Jonathan Williams. We doubt they could have foreseen its eventual transformation in to the art, dining, and residential destination it has become today.

Inwood-01 Inwood via CityRealty
A recent rezoning has attracted attention to Inwood beyond Upper Manhattan, but the name was bestowed on the neighborhood in 1864, years after the Hudson River Railroad breathed new life into what was once a sleepy fishing village. Some would have preferred the name "Kingsbridge Heights," but all agreed that "Tubby Hook," as it was previously known because of the tub-like outline of an inlet, wasn't going to cut it in this new age.

DUMBO-01 DUMBO via CityRealty
Before the acronym for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass was coined, the neighborhood between the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges was known as Olympia (a name dating back to the late 18th century) or considered to be part of Vinegar Hill. However, as artists moved into the abandoned industrial buildings along the waterfront, the new name stuck and the area made the transition to residential.

Turtle-Bay-01 Turtle Bay via The Corcoran Group
This section of Manhattan is now known for its stately townhouses and the United Nations Headquarters, but it was originally a piece of farmland bequeathed by the Dutch government in 1639. To see the numerous reptilian inhabitants of the creek running through Turtle Bay Farmland, one might naturally assume they inspired its name. However, the Turtle Bay Association has suggested that it was taken from "deutal," a Dutch word for "bent blade" that the bay resembled.

Spuyten-Duyvil-01 Spuyten Duyvil via Halstead
In the present day, Spuyten Duyvil offers the best of both worlds with peaceful waterfront homes within commuting distance of Midtown Manhattan. But in its early days, the creek's turbulent currents and deaths of people trying to swim it inspired its Dutch name, which can be pronounced to mean either "the devil's whirlpool" or "to spite the devil."

Murray Hill Streetscape (CityRealty)
Murray Hill is named in honor of Robert Murray, an 18th-century shipping tycoon who rented land from the city for a large house and farm on what is now Park Avenue and East 36th Street. This was a relatively isolated area at the time, but centuries to come brought several offices, museums, and diplomatic missions to the neighborhood. Recent years have also seen a wave of residential interest.

The oversized bedroom comfortably fits a king-size bed, with plenty of room for additional furniture. See floor plan and full details here.

SoHo New York SoHo (CityREalty)
We tend to think of neighborhoods with trendy portmanteau names as modern affectations (ahem, Nolita), but the trend goes back to the 1960’s with Soho among the leaders of the charge. Urban planner Chester Rapkin coined the name in The South Houston Industrial Area Study, naming the area “South of Houston Street.” The name brings a bustling section of London to mind, but the New York neighborhood has emerged as a destination in its own right.

Hamilton Heights (CityRealty)
This now-bustling stretch of Upper Manhattan was once a quiet area of mansions and estates, which was probably a factor in Founding Father Alexander Hamilton choosing it as a setting for The Grange, his Federal-style mansion. The extension of the subway line at the end of the 19th century ushered in a flurry of new housing, and a certain musical was probably instrumental in bringing it to the attention of today’s buyers.

Carroll Gardens (CityRealty)
Contrary to what Hamilton Heights (see above) and Washington Heights would make some think, Upper Manhattan does not have a monopoly on Revolutionary heroes. Charles Carroll, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, led a regiment that tried to regain a strategically placed farmhouse near what is now Gowanus Canal. The assault failed, but Mr. Carroll was not forgotten: Later centuries would see a South Brooklyn street named after him, then a park, and then an entire neighborhood.

Chelsea03 (CityRealty)
Before the Revolutionary War, retired British Major Thomas Clarke bought 94 acres of land between what is now West 21st through West 24th Streets, from the Hudson River to the current Eighth Avenue. He named his new estate after a veteran’s hospital in London. Indeed, as the centuries passed, the New York neighborhood would come to have quite a bit in common with its British counterpart including a reputation as an artists’ enclave, housing the height of fashion, and jaw-dropping real estate.

Greenwich Village
Back when New York was still known as New Amsterdam, this stretch of Lower Manhattan was dubbed “Groenwijck,” the Dutch for “pine district,” in a nod to what was once, as surprising as it may sound now, a rural setting. The name was later anglicized to “Greenwich,” but many of us simply call it “the Village” today.

Harlem (CityRealty)
In 1658, the settlement of Nieuw Haarlem was founded by Peter Stuyvesant, Director-General of what was then the colony of New Netherland. The English would later name the colony New York after capturing it from the Dutch, yet this neighborhood's name was left largely unchanged. The British burned the neighborhood to the ground during the Revolutionary War, but it has come back in leaps and bounds, and is considered by some to be experiencing another Harlem Renaissance.

When settlers first came to this stretch of what is now the Upper West Side, it was dubbed Vandewater Heights in honor of Dutch landowner Hermon Vandewater. Hundreds of years later, as institutions like Columbia University, Teacher's College, the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine, and St. Luke's Hospital bought property throughout the area, a debate sprang up about whether to call this emergent neighborhood "Morningside Heights" or "Cathedral Heights." Use of the former would eventually win out among locals, and even Team Cathedral Heights must concede that this name flows off the tongue better than "The Acropolis of the New World," as some 19th-century scholars dubbed it.

Vernon-Tower-01 Astoria vistas via PACS
Starting in the middle of the 17th century, this riverfront stretch of what is now Queens was originally known as Hallet's Cove in honor of its first landowner. Centuries later, fur merchant Stephen Halsey appealed to the state legislature to name the area in honor of John Jacob Astor, in the hopes that this would persuade the wealthiest man in America to invest in the neighborhood. Mr. Astor only invested $500, and never actually set foot in the neighborhood named after him, but the name stuck thanks to the efforts of his supporters and friends. (Let's pause here to say we hope the current president isn't taking note of this.)

Purchased from its indigenous inhabitants in the 17th century, this sprawling, hilly section of Brooklyn was originally known as "Crow Hill" in reference to the numerous black birds that roosted at the area's highest peak. When Crown Street was extended in 1916, the name "Crown Heights" was adopted. Mentalfloss muses on why they didn't make an easier change with "Crown Hill," but the neighborhood's residents don't seem to object.
