I could use as much advice as you are willing to provide me with. So please, overwhelm me with responses!

Background:

I'm 20 years old and about to transfer to either Queens College or Hunter College in Manhattan. My plan is to move out and into my new abode by July/August before school starts. What I'm looking for is a 2 Bedroom Apartment in a decent area, with a bathroom and kitchen (that are separate), and decent transportation available. Rent 1500/ mnth...but I'm flexible depending on the location and amenities. Obv. cheaper for more is best. I know that this might be asking for a lot. But I am not anticipating anything amazing...just something. However, my knowledge of good areas, decent asking prices, and in general, what I should be aware of and looking for is a bit limited.

Please help me!

I've been looking at Astoria, Prospect Heights, South Harlem, Elechester (in Flushing).

My potential room mate has been checking Craig's List, which I am skeptical of.

Do you know (given these unfriendly times for the financially struggling 20 something year old student):

1) Where there are decent neighborhoods with diverse community?

2) What are the top scams I should be watching out for?

3) What are decent asking prices for my above desires?

REALLY, please help. I'm really friendly and helpful so if you know that a neighbor is needed in your building or surrounding area please help a comrade out.

Thanks so much for taking the time.
