Mayur Vihar is a residential area in East Delhi, situated across the river Yamuna.It is one of the more posh localities here, made up largely of LIG, MIG and HIG DDA flats. It’s relatively a recent addition of Delhi, developed in three phases.
I have stayed in this area for 15 years!! I just completed my post graduation from IMT Ghaziabad. I like dancing, playing sports (football / badminton / volleyball / throwball / basetball), baby sitting and just discovered my new love for cooking!
The place which has Infrastructure of South Delhi, Prices of East Delhi and utilities from all over Delhi!
I have been living here for the past 15 years and the best part about this area is its strategic location. It is very easy to commute from this place or reach this place and the metro saves a lot of time. I doubt if there is any other place where the metro station is literally at your door step. Due to the metro many adjoining facilities/food joints have been set up and the area has developed very fast.
It has 2 brand new 5 star properties (Holiday Inn and Crown plaza) built next to it where you can even become a member and avail discounts. In case you are looking for something that is pocket friendly, then there is a Dominos outlet, a south Indian restaurant and Chawla Chicken in the complex. Otherwise you always order on phone and a good lot of joints in Noida never hesitate to deliver here. The famous "Akshardham temple" is barely 10 minutes via car.
It is strictly a neighborhood having families in the middle to upper middle class range. Do not expect "hep crowd" in such locations. The crowd inside the apartments is decent but due to too much development in the area, the commercialization has lead to overcrowding by other people not belonging to this locality, especially in the evenings.
There is a huge market in front of the apartments where you get everything from regular grocery, stationary, chemist shop, gift shop, gym, beauty parlor to regular fruits and vegetable vendor. There is also a huge biz bazaar store located under the metro station where you can buy different items at discounted reasons.Also it very easy to get a domestic help in this area.
As far as commuting options are concerned, it is one of the most strategically located area. The Metro station is right in front of the apartments located in this area (Mayur Vihar/mayur Vihar phase - 1 extension/New ashok Nagar) It is barely a Km way from the DND (Delhi - Noida) flyway. It can easily be accessed from Delhi or Noida and is situated at the border.
This area mostly contains apartments so safety wise it is not much of an issue. But there are mostly families staying in the apartments so if you are a party animal where you prefer having late parties then avoid going for this location. The New Ashok nagar police station is nearby and there is always a PCR van in the area.
