I am looking for this range anywhere in Brooklyn that is safe and near (for me, 1/2 mile walk) a train. I am not looking for a roommate situation but an apt. My credit is fine and the job transfer that will take me to NY pays more than 40 times that. I have been with the company for 4 years. I will be working in Lower Manhattan.

Any neighborhoods you can recommend?

Try Bay Ridge. Nice neighborhood and good amenities. Further from Manhattan than some people want, but commuting to Lower Manhattan shouldn't be too bad (maybe 30-40 min?) Do a search on the forum for other threads about Bay Ridge. I think you can still find a $1100 apartment there.

Nowadays, the rent is tight for a 1BR. Rents are up (I was paying 1000 for a 1BR only a few years ago)
I would look Dyker Heights, Bensonhurst, Gravesend. You will find nice studios, maybe a basic 1BR.

I live in Gravesend, close to Bensonhurst. Very safe, can walk to the N, and close to the D and F lines

Ridgewood. It's Queens, but as close as you can get to lower manhattan for $1100 that's a safe neighborhood.

Ever try to get in or out of Ridgewood by subway? Not good.

Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights, Bensonhurst are good possibilities for a $1100 one bed or studio with good train connection to the city.

I second all of these: Bay Ridge, Bensonhurst, Gravesend. The only one I usually don't suggest is Dyker because most of it has a suburban feel, there aren't too many stores and train access is more difficult. You can easily get a studio in any of these areas for less than $1100. You CAN find a one bedroom though it's a little more difficult.

I would agree, most about Bay Ridge probably because I know it the best of the three.
I thought Gravesend was an interesting area.
