The best neighborhoods for snagging a single man (or woman) in New York.

I went to college in New York. And in New York, there's a certain type of girl who likes to complain about the lack of eligible men in the city. There are so many more women than men, they'd say. It's not fair.

Well, almost in time for Valentine's Day, here is a helpful map that charts the single men and women by neighborhood. Apparently, single men should head to the Upper East Side. Single ladies will have the best luck in Queens.

See the map (and the Village Voice's helpful breakdown) here.
