Wavecrest Gardens is out in Far Rockaway and Spring Creek Gardens in on Drew street in Brooklyn. I am leaning towards Spring Creek Gardens in Brooklyn...but I am not sure

I used to live in Manhattan with my mom, but I just simply cannot afford it on my own at this time.

Oh, and Subway/Bus mass transit is a HUGE deal for me...

Which is the better of 2 neighborhoods? Thanks for any help you guys can provide!

i think you would like spring creek much better. My sister lives there and they just remodled the whole complex and added new security. I work in far rockaway and while i don't know too much about wavecrest it looks very nice from the outside and it is very close to the beach. It is very cold in far rockaway in the winter because your surrounded by the water.

Where are you planning on working? You can use hopstop.com to get an idea of the transit situation from both addresses to locations where you may end up working. Where are you coming back from? Welcome home!

I also would recommend Spring Creek Gardens over Wavecrest.

From Drew Street, your basic transit options are buses running either north or west to the nearest subway station. The B-14, from the corner of Drew and Linden Boulevard, will take you to the Utica Avenue station (3, 4 lines), though that's a bit of a haul. The fastest bus-to-subway connection would probably be the B-13 running on Crescent Street to the Euclid Avenue station (A, C). If you stayed on that bus, it would also take you to the Crescent Street station on the J line. There's also the B-15 bus from the corner of Eldert Lane and Linden Boulevard to the New Lots Avenue terminal of the 3 train. And the B-20 from that same corner gets you to Broadway Junction (A,C,J and L lines).

^^^Skip all that hassle and hop on the express bus. BM5 picks up on Linden and Eldert or 79th St. and drops off at Linden and 79th.^^^

i think wavecrest is the better neighborhood...not because i'm biased being from far rockaway, but for the following:

1. you can walk to the train: 7-10 minutes walk depending on where you're at in the complex
2. more amenities....does spring creek have a bank? wavecrest has a cleaners, supermarket, bank, CVS, pizzeria, west indian restaurant, and doctor's offices all on site.
3. wavercrest isnt surrounded by projects
4. beach is a block away
5. gated community the gates have the magnetic key to get in, i dont know if spring creek has it

the only thing spring creek has 1 up on wavecrest is the movies imo.
