Comparing Rome neighborhoods to NYC

Jump to last reply

I know this is not an apples-to-apples comparison, but I was hoping that someone could suggest Rome neighborhoods suitable for me after reading what I like/dislike about NYC neighborhoods. (I live in NYC) I'm not really ready to start narrowing down ideas for specific hotels yet, rather I am trying to locate some suitable areas of the city where I'd like to stay for three nights during our honeymoon. Thanks!

So anyway, if I was visiting NYC, I'd want to stay in Manhattan. But I'd very much want to avoid the uber tourist spots like Times Square in favor of a more intimate, downtown neighborhood like SoHo, the West Village, or Tribeca. We're not Upper East Side types, but definitely not Williamsburg types either.

By no means am I saying that I want to avoid tourists, rather I'm saying that we're hoping to stay in a real, working neighborhood (unlike Times Square) where we can soak in some Roman history at amazing cafes and enjoy fabulous people watching.

Any New Yorkers care to help me out? What's the SoHo, Tribeca, or West Village of Rome?
