What do you mean by South Brooklyn? There are all kinds of different sections there, from horrible ghettos to an exclusive gated community.

Ditto for Eastern Queens.

Southern Brooklyn has more in common with more urban neighborhoods than Eastern Queens. Brighton Beach, Coney Island, Sheepshead Bay are definitely more urban than Eastern Queens. Manhattan Beach may be the only area similiar. We have great green space however- Sheepshead bay, beaches, good bicycle paths. Food is good & inexpensive in Brighton Beach.

Yeah I personally really like South Brooklyn. Very urban , but also very safe [for the most part] and lots of things to do. I would love to live in Sheepshead Bay, Bay Ridge, or Marine Park, but I don't mind where I'm at now.

South Brooklyn = South of NY State Route 27
East Queens = East of Van Wyck Expressway.

Agreed?

Southern Brooklyn is probably easier. Eastern Queens is known for its lack of subway service (a few areas have LIRR service, but it's just not the same as subway service). You may still have to take a bus to the subway, depending on the area, though (if you live in say, Marine Park, that'll be the case, but if you live in Sheepshead Bay, you'll be right on a subway line).

How would these areas compare to NJ Gold Coast towns? Is it just me or most of NJ Gold Coast feels kinda isolated unless you live near PATH? It's like you are surrounded by water from two sides in a narrow area and always have to cross tunnels and bridges to go anywhere. (kinda like Manhattan, but a lot less action going on)
