Idk. You would know far more than I would. I think I got Woodside and Woodhaven mixed up anyway now that I think of it. I'm thinking of where ever the mall is...that's the only time I've gone to Queens.

Have you looked into Oakland Gardens, Douglaston, Little Neck, Flushing, Forest Hills, Bayside & Fresh Meadows? Various price ranges but you should be definitely be able to find something in your price range. I mentioned these areas because they have good schools and you have access to the either the subway #7 or LIRR - Port Washington line. Best of luck.

MLSLI.com - Long Island Real Estate may be helpful in giving you an idea about etc.

The mall is in Elmhurst.

I'm not very familiar with Glendale and Ridgewood, but I think commuting via mass transit will be tough from these neighborhoods. They're not close to the subway lines that run to LIC so you would need to do bus + subway.
You'd either take the L to the G, or the Q11 to the R.

The 7 runs through (from west to east) LIC, Sunnyside, Woodside, Jackson Heights/Elmhurst (I think that 74th st stop is in the corner where the two meet), Corona, and Flushing. On the topic of Flushing, it's a bit further out and not necessarily cheaper than the areas from Sunnyside to there. If you want to live at that stop, it's dead center in what's considered the Chinatown of Queens. I'm friends with a lot of people who grew up there, but as far as a place to raise a child, I'd assume Forest Hills and Sunnyside to be better. Maybe the historical district of Jackson Heights too when you go a block north(west) of Broadway, where the 7 runs along to Flushing.

bus to subway sounds like more than what I can stand. Thank you!
If you did have easy parking at work, then looking at less subway-friendly areas might be worthwhile. You will likely get more space for your money and have easier parking near home. I can't speak to the schools though.

I second the idea of taking your time to look at different neighborhoods. It sounds like there's no need to rush as it will be months before your daughter moves up. Get a feel for your commute and the different areas. Some Queens neighborhoods have large immigrant populations which may or may not be a good fit for you. Some are more dense, some are more suburban, etc.

Oh, I didn't think about the L. I thought it was the M train that ran through those neighborhoods. The L to the G doesn't sound bad...all local stops but doable.
