I'm thinking about attending St John's for Law School next year. I'm from out of state, and I'd rather live in a more urban area of the city where I can walk to everything rather than suburban Jamaica (where St John's is). Could anyone suggest a reasonably close, urban/walkable area where I could easily take the subway to St John's?

Thank you

If I remember correctly St Johns is not really close to any subway, you have to do a subway/bus combo. I'm not sure how long this takes or how easy a commute it is.

Public Transportation (http://www.stjohns.edu/about/general/directions/directions/queens/public.stj - broken link)

Living wise, it's closest to the E/F line. So in terms of what you are looking for, your best bet is probably Jackson Heights.

You can go to the St. John's website and go to the Jamaica campus and then look at the 'directions' - that way you can figure out where you might be able to live.

Not sure what your budget is, but your best bet would probably be forest hills area. It's right on queens blvd and austin street, so there is plenty of shopping and restaurants that is walkable, and close to public transaportation (subway and bus). To SJU, you would need to take the E/F train one stop and then transfer to a bus, which is about a 15 minute ride - it'll drop you off right in front. I am a SJU alumni and live in Forest Hills so I know the area well
