You would be better off in Forest Hills if you want people closer to your age. When I walk down Austin Street I see lots of people in what appear to be their late 30s hanging out in front of Bonfire and the sports bar next to 5 Burros.

It's what everyone has described here but I prefer Sunnyside, between Queens Blvd & Northern Blvd. Not as congested, a quick ride on the 7 train to Grand Central. It's close enough to Astoria if that's where you want to socialize.

I used Millenium real estate on Ditmars Blvd. You'll have to pay the broker one month's rent, but it's worth it if you stay in the apartment for at least a year or so.

I also love the area. Lots to do and the subway is really quick into Manhattan. There are tons of sushi restaurants on Ditmars, which is a big plus for me lol
$750 for a 1br is very cheap anywhere in NYC, let alone a nice neighborhood like Astoria.
I would be VERY careful. You know the saying if its too good to be true then it probably is.


Edit: I just realized that post is 4 yrs old. Argghh
