Awesome! Thank you so much!!

This area, with those 4 neighborhood, leaves a person central to everything, and still find a 3 bedroom for $2200 a month.

I definitely have JH and Sunnyside on the list!! Thank you so much!! I still have to get used to this whole 2/1 apartment or 3/2 apartments..lol..gonna miss my 2/2 apartments here in Atlanta.

Consider Whitestone Queens. It is located in Northeastern Queens. A lovely area.

Astoria would be great. Used to live there and there were always kids running around, playing. Not sure about schools, but you can get a solid place for your price range.

Forrest Hills and Kew Gardens seem nice as well and would be a good fit, too

Okay. Thanks for the info on Flushing!
Is your workplace right next to a 7 train stop and not near any other trains? I hope you do realize that there are other trains that service Long Island City. For example, the E,M, G and 7 all stop at Court Square. Also the N, W and 7 all stop at Queensboro Plaza and the E, M and R all stop at Queens Plaza.

Can you post the intersection, or at least the general area, where your workplace is?

If you could get off in LIC at Court Square, then a commute from an E train stop (like Forest Hills) could make quite a bit of sense.

Not sure where I will live though right now. Staying in Airbnb for a couple weeks until I can secure place. Any ideas?

I am very familiar with the Bronx and Washington Heights, but I don't know anything about Queens honestly. I have family in the Bronx and WH, but they keep a certain lifestyle that I have to try to stay away from so I haven't even informed them that I'll be local now...hence my coming to Internet for questions.

Insight on best places to live in Queens would be helpful...best elementary schools...and if my salary will be ok to survive on considering I am very comfortable on less in Atlanta.


With six fighres you can find something nice in astoria. Its right next to long island city.

Default My advice to you is to pay attention to me

Ignore everyone else in this thread. Folks from Atlanta will fit in perfectly in Southeast Queens. It is the most Americanized portion of NYC. Springfield Gardens, Queens Village, Hollis, Laurelton, Rochdale, Saint Albans and Cambria Heights (it is flat) are the places for you.

For some reason I imagine the residential neighborhoods in Atlanta to look vaguely like a less dense version of Southeast Queens

Also I don't think that's a very good suggestion given the location of her job and the fact that the neighborhoods along Queens Blvd are way more interesting.
