So what... Marisol probably some housing lottery and is able to get into one of the of the 'new affordable housing' units you know that sham 80/20 program. Its too bad that the meaning of affordable housing in NYC is ridiculously low.

In CT a single person can make up to $85,000 to get a very low rate under a first time buyer program, but in Queens these programs start to phase out at a pitifully low $60,000 a year. I doubt that Marisol is working on Wall Street making $250,000 or more.

I am sure that 'Marisol' won't even have to worry about using the subway since she likely owns one or more of those humongous SUV's.

And you are right that is a lie. In most of Queens, it can take easily an hour door to door to get to midtown Manhattan. If you want closer, prepare to pay $2,000 or more a month for rent in Queens.

How long is the commute from Far Rock to Midtown on the subway anyway? 2 hours?

I need to buy a car. Just wish I could park it somewhere no one would steal it, mess with it, break into it, or hit it. I hate the subway, but I have been using it for years.

No, there really aren't many parts of the city anymore. Anyway, cops are too concerned with pulling people over for such infractions as not wearing a seatbelt or having an expired registration.

Far Rockway & the near the Belt Parkway in Queens may the last affordable place in the greater NYC area.

I lived in Far Rock after I could no longer afford Manhattan. It took me about 1 hour and a half from Beach 25th to 86th Street...taking the A to 59th and then the B or C. It was like 1 hour to get to 42nd street on the A. Then I found a job in Queens. It STILL took me almost as long cause of the damn buses and for the most part I was just going across the bay. A car would have been nice but those tolls and the price of gas really add up quick. I liked living in Far Rock though....outside of my bus almost being caught in a crossfire once by the projects, I had no problems and loved being by the ocean.

I just hope you can swim when the next Hurricane hits...



Honestly the crime in the neighborhood has calmed down some, for now (with some spikes here and there). Still a bad neighborhood though. However get ready for it to come back hard soon. NYPD lacks manpower. Severely. Impact will be no more soon. Get ready for any blocks that seem "locked down" to bust out. You also have a growing population with the new development. Not all those people moving in are good people. New people will also have a lot of non criminal complaints to stress manpower for things like: Stripped car needs ticket for tow, blocked driveway needs ticket for tow, loud music complaints, loiters in front of home. Then regular criminal stuff common in the area like: car window broken into, teens fighting/drinking/rowdy, domestic violence, drug sales. Then more felony crime complaints: robberies, carjackings, shootings, burglaries, homicides. A precinct already stressed will get even more stressed. The gang beef between the projects will never go away. The new development will bring new people, new problems. It's gonna be real fun soon...
