I am an international student who is looking for a safe and quiet
place to live. I am not a social girl. I don'e like night life. I want a quiet and peaceful life. (May I am wrong to come NYC, but I think I will get used to it.)
My maximum budget for living is $900.
I know it is tough in NYC, so I choose to share an apartment with someone.
My school is located in 25th street. And I have a part-time job near Federal Plaza. I don't like subway and bus. The best choice is where I can walk to school and job. Ohhhh, don't laugh at me.
. So I tried to look some place in east village or west village. But I was told that these areas are crowded with artists and hippies. I am not that cool person. So I turn my eyes to the area within 30 minutes travel.
Who can help me to know the following area: Chelsea, Astoria, Hoboken.
I found two place. one is in 58th street, another one is in 15th street. which location do you think is better. "Better" mean safe, clean and quiet. I don't care restaurants, bars, and grocery stores. I do care safety of night-walk and trees around the road.
Astoria: I found a place near Astoria Park. I've never been in Astoria. Is the area near the park nice? Again, safe? quiet? not crowded? I used to visit a friend in Elmhurst where I really don't like. Too many people around the street.
Hoboken: How about Hoboken? Anyone knows this area. I read a post in this forum recommending this area. SO I search. I got a place on 2nd street & garden street. How about this?
I asks a lot of questions. Thanks a lot for your patience to read these all. Please help me. I appreciate all your helps.
