How would the commute be in the morning (driving) from Rego Park to SoHo via the Queensboro Bridge? Is it even possible? How long would it take? Or would it be better to go 278 and take the Williamsburg Bridge? Seems to me that the highway would have a lot more traffic though, and it would require going 495 first and then getting on 278...that's probably a half hour right there by itself.

I would probably need a place with my own dedicated parking spot, but not too many of them are there, especially for my budget of $1000 or less. If I get a place in Southern Brooklyn, Eastern Queens or in SI, which are less crowded, should I still try to find a place with a dedicated spot or I won't have a problem finding a new one every day? Since this might present an issue, which streets in NYC have street cleaning? For example, where I live now in NJ, only certain "letter" streets have that.

Somewhat, A guy was shot and killed there a few days ago. It's easily Queens most Hispanic neighborhood [around 70-75%]. Mainly Mexicans, Ecuadorians, Colombians etc.

I wouldnt say ghetto, but deff not as nice as Rego Park or Forest Hills. It's heavy hispanic and looks rough. I've walked through with my parents and didn't fear for my life. But to live? No thanks.

And 1000? You can get a studio for like 900 but I doubt there would be a dedicated spot.

SI doesn't have street cleaning. I'm not sure about Eastern Queens. I know the more urbanized areas of southern Brooklyn (near the subway) have it, but I'm not sure about areas further out like say, Mill Basin.

Keep it simple. Just take the (R) train to Prince Street. Since it's 2 stops from the end of the line, you should be able to get a seat.

Out of those 2, I guess the second one would be a little bit better because you spend less time on Manhattan streets, but it's really the lesser of two evils.
