My youngest son is moving to NYC for a job at CUNY; thinking about Queens, Brooklyn of northern Manhattan for an apartment bigger than a closet that is affordable:) Any suggestions on neighborhoods, resources, etc? TIA!

Hi bl!

Whafa's post had some good suggestions.

If your son will be closer to midtown than downtown, Queens is a good idea as there are still some reasonable rentals there. I would suggest Astoria, Sunnyside or Long Island City (although LIC is still quite industrial).

Here's a good article from NY Magazine on neighborhoods:

The article is a couple of years old but still provides a lot of useful info.

Here's a general article about renting in NYC:

Good luck to him!
