I will be moving up from Florida, don't know much about the area. What are some affordable, safe areas in Queens that aren't too much of a commute to CUNY's law school in Flushing (via public transportation)? I'd prefer to have roommates and not spend more than $900/bedroom (CUNY doesn't budget much for student housing allowances).

Or areas outside of Queens are fine as long as the commute by public transportation isn't bad.

i live only right around the corner from the law school. I love my neighborhood. all the best parks around. Its nice and peaceful and of course safe. the closest train around is the 7 train in flushing and that takes like 20 minutes to walk to from the school or 10-15 minutes by bus. the q44 and q20 are the main buses that run up and down main street. are you driving? you could live in briarwood and the drive would be like 10 minutes and maybe 15 from forest hills. fresh meadows is nice too. keep in mind that this area of queens is the most beautiful but also a little boring. its not really poppin its mostly chinese and jewish families. dm me if u got questions this is my hood i know it well.

Thanks! Good tips! I liked all of the parks nearby the schools because I have dogs. Good to know it's safe too. I guess I don't mind boring since I'll probably be too busy to socialize much. Plus quieter is probably better. I will be taking bus/train everywhere because I don't want to deal with having a car, but I don't mind anything less than a 1 hr trip.

The area around the law school is very safe. Transportation isn't a problem, there are 3 buses that you could take: the 20/44 (as was mentioned) and the 88 is also a few blocks away. It's about a 10-15 min ride to the 7 train on the 20/44 and about 20 mins to the R/V Woodhaven station in Rego Park.

Some neighborhoods to look into are Kew Gardens Hills, Rego Park, Elmhurst, and Flushing. They are all close by, safe, and near shopping areas. Good luck!
