Hi,

A friend of mine is moving to NY and is considering living in Queens because she doesn't want to live in Brooklyn and can't afford Manhattan. I honestly don't know much of Queens so I was wondering if anyone from that area could tell us what the best neighborhoods are.

Thanks!

I know very little about Queens, but my god-daughter who is a savvy New Yorker is living in Jackson Heights. She says, it is up and coming!

my aunt lives in Maspeth, and I'm probably moving there in less than a year. It's a few minute bus ride to the subway, that's the only bad thing about living there. It's a decent area though. It's cheaper since it isn't as close to subways, but I recommend it. I also recommend Middle Village, I used to live there.

Jackson Heights? Don't move there unless you speak Hindi/Urdu.

Astoria isn't as nice as it used to be. All of the Italians, and many of the Greeks have fled.

Yes we all know that Italians and Greeks are the supior aryan race that keeps neigborhoods nice. What a bunch of racist rant. Is this what you would call blatant or latant racism

You could also check out LIC (Long Island City) It is only 2 or 3 subway stops from Midtown. It is an up and coming area. Jackson Hieghts is cool along Roosevelt Ave. Flushing is also a cool area. It kinda cheep, and only a 30 minuet ride from Midtown or 15 if you take the express. Don't coun't out Brooklyn. That is considered by many to be the hippest borough in the city. Williamsburgh, Brooklyn Hieghts, Downtown, Park Slope, are cool areas. Just make sure you have the $$$ for it!

Flushing is nice and fairly cheap, but if you aren't Chinese or Korean you might feel out of place.
