I agree, I also do most of my shopping in Flushing and at the Stop and Shop on Northern Blvd. You would think the restaurants would be slightly cheaper in LIC but they are just as expensive as eating out in Manhattan.

Those tenants have the best rent rates ever.....even though their neighbors are not the best.
The waterfront is more expensive. It's about a $200/month premium to be on the waterfront in LIC compared to the Court Square area (and of course apartments with views will have much larger premiums).

Agreed. That's why I thought it was funny the person before me mentioned moving to the waterfront because it's cheaper. I thought that was odd.

Well for me it's cheaper, but that's because of Hunter's Point South. Market rate though I'd say the waterfront and Queensboro are pretty damn close in price...at least for studios.

Homer, thank you for clarifying. I didn't know you won an apartment through a housing lottery. That makes sense now. Are you low or middle income at Hunters Point and was your current landlord sad to see you go?
