I know that Amsterdam is pretty good. Any others?

I don't want to be picky but I really want to work at a place that is friendly, supportive, teaching, understnading, work focused, goal oriented and really care for the patients! I hear it's hard to find in LTC, but i'm not toatlly convinced.

Although I haven't worked there, Coler-Goldwater on Roosevelt Island is one of the largest (if not THE largest) in the city, you may want to look there. Almost the entire island is taken up by the health care facilities... it looks massive. Plus, Roosevelt Island is such an interesting little place (though a little hard to get to, just the F train stops there) with a lot of history. Doesn't feel like it's in New York City at all.

And the tramway.

Yep, it'll be nice once it reopens... the renovations are scheduled to be completed this fall... who knows when it'll actually be up and running. But that tramway is another thing that makes Roosevelt Island so special!

Uh, that is a good question! It's kind of hard to miss, especially given its rebirth over the last decade. However, I have a friend who lived in and worked in Manhattan for more than twenty years and had never heard of Inwood, Washington Heights, Sugar Hill, Morningside Heights (which is not on the morning side, BTW!)... it's all a matter of perspective sometimes and there was no reason for her to recognize those neighborhoods from the isolation of Greenwich Village.
