Why limit yourself to a studio? In that range you can find legal apartments in people's houses, or small apartment buildings. More than likely you won't have to pay a broker fee, and you'll have much more space.

Check out Craigslist. Astoria pops up quite a few times.

Sorry but no.. Rents have skyrocketed in Queens (especially within a mile of any subway line). The least expensive parts of Queens are south of Jamaica or maybe in southeastern queens near JFK or the Nassau line.

The market rate rent for a studio in most of Queens is between $1,100 - $1,400 a month. I pay $840 for a studio in Flushing which is considered dirt cheap. If I were to move out, the landlord can get close to $1,100 at market rate rent. I see one bedroom apartments that are smaller than my current apartment for double the rent I am paying (plus the full 15% broker fee).

Astoria is like a mini williamsburg and supposedly one of the hottest/trendiest parts of Queens. Also very hard to find an apartment for less than $1,500 and the brokers charge the standard rate (15% of annual rent).

Well maybe not Astoria. But on craigslists I did see a few studios in his range that were in Astoria. He can definitely find something in Queens around 1,000. Depending on the neighborhood he can find a 1br.
