Was looking for some opinions..my son is looking at apts in Astoria..one was located in the area of 39th and Broadway. Any thoughts on that area? Decent? Safe? Is 39th in that area called Steinway Street? Thanks for any insight.

There is no 39th St in Astoria per se unless you want to call it Steinway St. There is a 39th ave but that doesn't cross Steinway St, that ends on Northern Blvd.

That is a very crowded area, but no it's not bad at all.

Hey I'm thinking about moving to a nice 2 bedroom around Broadway and 46th St. It's not in the heart of Astoria, but not too far. The EMR subway is close too. It's 2250/month or 2400 including electric and gas. Is that a good deal? Is a ConEd bill in queens for an average sized apt more or less than $150 a month? Also, what do you guys think about that area? Thanks

Default Depends what you want

You first have to decide whether you want to live close to the train or more residential to park a car. The closer to the train,the worse the parking is.and the closer to the train the more expensive the rents are. But if you work in the city you hop on the train and you're in the city in about 15 to 20 minutes

For that money you can find a 1 or 2 bedroom, in a newly built building in a more central location. Anything at or above $2K is generally at or near the top of the market.

At 21st St. and Vernon/Astoria Blvds. there is a newly built doorman building with other amenities not normally found in Astoria with rent in your range.

I suggest also Hunters Point, there are many doorman buildings with ALL the amenities! Lots of young people and in your range. One stop on the #7 train and you are in Midtown/Grand Central Station.
