Hello, I've been going crazy trying to find an apartment, my price range is from $800-900, I want to live in a quiet, safe location, I'm looking for a bulding, I've searched Craiglist but most of those listings are for basement apartments or family house type listings, I found one which said no fee for a limited time and it's $875 for a studio, I'm not familiar with this area: Beach Haven Apartments 2611 West 2nd St Brooklyn, hopefully someone could help me out, and provide some info on the neighborhood or even the apartment complex itself, or if someone knows any other buldings where the price range is around $800-900 in Queens or Brooklyn that would be great, thank you.

Those are in Gravesend. I have a friend who lives right around there - it's a pretty decent area, fairly quiet, but I don't know anything about the complex. Maybe someone else does.

I live in the area. I have passed those apts (right off the Belt) many times, dont know much about them (I think the same real estate office that does Trump Towers handles it).
Very nice area, sound about the market rate in the area.

I've never been inside, but i've passed by a lot, and the complex is quiet....i think a lot of elderly live there. the complex is serviced by the F train, which you can catch at Avenue X and McDonald Avenue.

Thanks for the replys, I guess I might take the plunge, I see SeventhFloor ur Location is Far Rockaway, I saw an apartment complex there by the name of Wavecrest Gardens, the rent is only $750 for a studio, which leads me to believe the area must not be too good, is this a correct assumption?

If you work in Manhattan. Far Rock can be too long of a commute by train either the subway or L.I.R.R. Both take at least 1 and 1/2 hours on a good day. Gravesend is alot closer and more convenient. Far Rock is only close to JFK and L.I.

actually my commute from work is 1 hour, 10 minutes door to door.
i have to be in by 8 but i usually arrive in my office at 7:45 and i take a 6:45 train. the train itself takes 50 minutes from beach 90th to chambers street.

True from Far Rock to lower manhattan it might take a little less time. It is still a fact that Far Rock is the farthest commute time to Manhattan and still being in the Five boroughs (with maybe the exception of South Shore Staten Island). In fact some parts of Nassau County have shorter commute times to Manhattan on the L.I.R.R. than Far Rock .

It's terrible. Leaking walls...very thin walls, making it noisy from above,below, and from all sides. Many inconsiderate neighbors...mice,roaches, silverfish in the apartments and in the hallways...
