I have a lot of researching to do. Thats great that google maps marks the subway stations. I love this city-data forum, it's such a good resource to check out the opinions of locals, which is SO important and a lot better than trying to find new yorkers on chat :P

THANKS AGAIN

You're very welcome. This forum is a great resource for those relocating, and I am sure that you will get many opinions from New Yorkers on all your questions. There are some great areas in all boroughs, and I am sure you will be very happy once settled.

I think so too Now it's just a matter of getting there. (NCLEX exam for nurses, licence in new york state to be a nurse, TN visa... then decide if I want to relocate as a travel nurse and possibly get thrown into a bad hospital situation (too many patients per nurse) but NOT have to pay rent, or trying to find a permanent job otherwise and having to pay to fly myself there and back for interviews. Right now I'm looking into a couple of travel nursing companies that can get me down to new york... then I'll have time to look at houses in person

Mariner's Harbor is not one of the best areas of staten island, its an above-average crime area, and pretty far from the SI Ferry. Also has public housing (Mariner's Harbor Houses) and a Mitchell-Lama development (Arlington Terrace) that adds crime to the area. The quickest way to Manhattan is an express bus that stops at South Avenue and Richmond Terrace which is $5 one-way.

The Concord area has a big city project near Targee that I would not recommend to you living near it, if you are a woman living by yourself. Mariner's Harbor area is a ghetto area, plain and simple. Staten Island has many, many areas much better than those two. Good-luck!

Park Hill is not owned by the city. It is owned by Fox Hills Mgmt.

It may not be owned by the City, but nonetheless, is full of crime.
