Kew Gardens is also one of the most beutiful areas in Queens. Located in central Queens east of Forest Hills Gardens, It seems like an extension of Forest Hills. Apartments are a little pricey but not as high as Forest Hills.

I'm surprised not too many people mentioned Woodside for these guys. It's close to Manhattan, via the (7) and LIRR.

Woodside is one those sleepy neighborhoods that doesn't get much attention. Same thing can be said for Sunnyside and to some extent Maspeth.

I grew up in Glendale, Queens. I'm in my early 30s. I still go back there often. A lovely area....very safe with well cared for mostly semi-attached homes with driveways.

East Glendale (realtors call it Upper Glendale) extends from 73rd place east to Union Turnpike. This is where the homes are nicest and there is the most suburban feel.

Glendale (Lower Glendale) is more urban but still very nice. It's more diverse. Closer to lots of great shopping on Myrtle Ave. in adjoing Ridgewood.

Myrtle Ave, runs through all of Glendale and has everything as far as everyday shopping goes. On the extreme north end of Glendale bordering Middle Village the Atlas Terminal Shops have opened: it is struggling though its a mix between outlet mall and semi-upscale strip mall.

PS 113 is one of best elementary schools in the city. Sacred Heart Catholic School serves East Glendale and St. Pancra the rest of Glendale.

Commuting to the city is indeirect but not too difficult. Besides express buses you can take the Q29 bus to Queens center Mall and get on local subway there....

Thank you for posting that, Morningside_gal in #71.

I was really wondering where people were getting on the train if they were saying the commute to Midtown from Astoria is 10 minutes. I can tell you that from Astoria/Ditmars Blvd to Grand Central is 20-25 minutes during rush hour, even if the 7 is waiting for you at Queensboro P. when you switch and you get on and off the train at the closest car. And then you should add the time of the ongoing stops or walk to your workplace. For me the total commute is 30 minutes, which is reasonable. For others, that might not be reasonable. If commute time is an issue for you, you should make the trip during rush hour before committing to living in any area. (best to do your own due diligence and not take anyone's word for it, including the mta).

That said, I've only lived here for a week. Already I love Astoria like crazy. It makes me happy to buy imported food and veg at 11 pm, and see so many ethnicities, modes of dress, elderly people, families, kids, hipsters, all sharing the same sidewalk in peace and harmony. Great restaurants, bakeries, and bagel shops. Only one complaint: I'm gonna get fat here.

I also looked at apts. in Jackson Hghts. Interesting, vibrant area, but it just seemed more congested in the areas where I saw apts. Astoria just seems more 'wide open' in a way, which to me is a nice change when you leave Manhattan (also great, don't get me wrong) at the end of the day.

Hello everybody!

I am moving to Astoria this summer. I am in my early 20's. Can anybody tell me which areas in Astoria are full of stores, restaurants, etc?
