I am 24 years old, married with 3 small children. We are moving to New York this Feb. We were thinking Queens. What does everyone think. Let me tell you what we like. I am a writer and my husband is a cook almost a chef. I want somewhere that has homes not just apartments. We also have a puppy that will be coming along so parks are also good. We want a place that has entry level jobs not jobs that you must have a 4 year degree. I am also going to school to become a paralegal. I like Queens also because it is right outside of New York. What are the least and most expensive and if you name a city please tell why that would be a good choice. Also we like to make sure there are plenty of things to do. We like to be moving. Thank you in advance.

What is your budget? And do you want an apartment? Or a house? How much of a commute are you willing to tolerate? I'm assuming you don't yet have jobs...that should be something IN PLACE before you even think about moving. And finding rental properties with a dog is harder....and more expensive.

Queens IS part of New York City.....

I did not know that about Queens. We get housing assistance but we do not want to live in the projects are anything. Is it hard to get a job if you do not already live there? I would rather have a house but an apartment is fine. Our budget is 1100 dollars a month. Prefer a 4 bedroom but will take a 3 bedroom. I do not want to commute more than 2 hours one way. If by subway I will go up to 20 miles. We can live without the dog.

First, your budget is completely unrealistic. You need to check these other threads. You'd be lucky to get ONE bedroom on that budget.

Second, as a dog-lover and someone active in dog rescue, I'm sad that you find it so easy to give up a member of your family. Unfortunately, that's how many of our dogs come into rescue.

You never asked me what I was planning to do with the dog. I know all about rescuing dogs. I have gotten most of my dogs from shelters and where people do not want them. I do not put my dogs on the street so let's get that clear right now. You also have a bad attitude. Thanks for the help.

You had a big green smile next to the "We can live without the dog." What else should I think? It's obviously not a loved member of your family.

i think it was just a typo and OP probably meant can't live without the dog. easy to do typo.

i know several people who are involved with rescues...they are passionate, no doubt about it.

I did not mean to offend anyone. I love my puppy. The smile was for the post not about the puppy. We are going to move to Arizona anyways but thanks for everything. Really.

Are there any safe places in harlem to live? Looking for a studio, no carpet, clean at around 1000.00 monthly. Is this ridiculous? I'm a Triple T performer ... so want to be able to get to auditions and be near musicians etc...

Uh Oh...Housing Asssistance, perhaps Section 8?? Most of the Section 8 housing in NYC, particularly in Queens are in not so desirable areas. There is NO WAY ON EARTH, even with Section 8 that you will get a 3-4 bedroom apartment anywhere in the five boroughs (Except maybe Staten Island) for $1100 per month budget, except for the projects. By the way Queens is in New York City, not outside of it.
