Depends on where. There are some very expensive areas of Queens and some not so expensive and not very nice areas of Manhattan.

Rikers Island has 15,000 convicted prisoners. Is it part of Queens or the Bronx? That would make any borough kind of BAD.

It's a little confusing -- Rikers sits in the East River and is officially a part of the Bronx, but has a Queens address.

I bet neither borough wanted it. they probably thought if they placed it in the Bronx but gave it a Queens address, the burden of association would be split between the two boroughs.

And you can't get there from the Bronx. The only access,other than swimming,is from Queens.I am sure I heard on Law And Order once that Rikers was in Queens so even they were wrong (probably were) the world will never know now . I think Queens is stuck with the attachment,though undeservedly.

Would you say this is still true for 2009? I'm looking to move this year. Thanks.

This thread is like a zombie in some third-rate science fiction movie; it just doesn't want to die. OK--listen up, you people from out of town: there is no "worst" borough in New York City, just as there isn't a "best" one. People have preferences, that's all. Before you move here, you should check out areas of interest with your own eyes. For heaven's sake, don't go listening to what people say about this neighborhood or that one.
