So I got a new job and Long Island University, CW Post campus, which is in Brookville, NY. I want to live near my job, but I also want to live near the city. I've been looking at Queens as a good place. I want to live near a subway stop, but again, not too far from work. I've looked at the subway map and come up with Jamaica or Flushing. Trouble is, I don't really know the first thing about those neighbourhoods and would really appreciate any info you guys can give me. I'd also consider moving to a neighbourhood with a subway station closer to the city, if it has easy acces to roads that lead to Brookville (I-495 or route 107).
I've decided to ask everybody if they have any information that could use, so that includes the combined resources of the FORT Anything from infortaion about the "atmosphere" and parking situation in a given neighbourhood to tips on finding an apartment: websites, who to stay away from, what I need to know before I look for an apartment and so on, will be greatly appreciated. And I'm looking for a cheap-ish studio apartment, so if you happen to know someone who knows someone who's heard of a great studio thats avalible, please let me know. I'll be moving in mid-August.
