Default How about the Queens?

Hi
i'm an italian student who is attending the nyu poly!
i'm very quiet and this is my first time in new york! now i have taken a single room paying 900 $ per month! the place is brooklyn next to the franklin ave station! telling the true i don't like this place too much, it seems to be unsafe! so either for the place either for the high rent fees i have decided to move in another place for october!
I'm giving a look on craigslist but it very difficult in finding a room! i have seen several good dealings on the Queens... from google maps it seems to be a very very good place! it seems to be the quiet part of america that i have always loved!
But some friends of mine says to me that queens is a bad area, worse respect the bronx!! is it true?
Could you give me some advices about the place that i should avoid?
and could you give me the same advices for brooklyn?

Many areas in Queens are excellent & safe places to live. Which neighborhoods are you considering?

87th St..closer to Northern Blvd or Astoria Blvd? It's not a bad area at all. Way better then where you are now in Brooklyn. LOL, it's the other way around, the Bronx overall is worse then Queens.

It's going to be bus and subway to get where you need to go in Brooklyn.
Q66 Bus westbound on Northern Blvd, get off at Queensboro Plaza, get on the N train and get off at Lawrence St-Metro Tech stop.

The area you listed in Queens is fine, but I suggest that you shouldn't move to Queens if your school is in Brooklyn as you will not like the commute. there are many many neighborhoods in Brooklyn where you can get a $900 (or less) room in a nice, safe neighborhood that has an easy commute to your campus. Try Bay Ridge, South Slope, Windsor Terrace, Kensington and Ditmas Park.
