Hey, Car Insurance companies are [legally] robbing me to the point in which I can't afford to live in the car-dependent area that I currently live in.

SO, I would like to know;

1. What neighborhoods of Queens generally has the cheapest rents?
2. How much would an average studio or 1 bdrm apartment cost? (to the best of your knowledge)
3. How walkable are they?
4. How accessible are they to the subway?

(Also, no offense but please exclude South Jamaica and Far Rockaway; ANY other area I am open to, racial makeup is not an issue and as long as the crime level isn't extremely bad then I can work with it.)

Corona or Flushing. I'm sure those areas are fairly cheap.

He already addressed that in the original post. In the future, try improving your reading comprehension and don't participate in threads that you don't have anything to contribute to.

OP: I agree with Flushing and Corona suggestions. You may be able to find a bargain in Elmhurst, Woodside, Rego Park and Kew Gardens as well. There are trains that go to all of these areas, however, there may be parts of these neighborhoods that would require a bus to the train.

Besides craigslist I have heard that nybits and streeteasy are decent sites for looking at rentals. You might be able to get a sense of rent prices from looking there. Nybits usually lists the actual addresses of the units so you could plug those into google maps and see how the transportation options are.
