It really depends on his tastes. I love Brooklyn; I am closer to downtown now than I ever was on the UWS. If he will be working Midtown, Queens maybe makes some sense but I am biased by my burrough.Being close to a train stop is critical. Being close to work is really nice, too. In Brooklyn, I would look near Prospect Park (Like Park Slope, Windsor Terrace, even maybe Ditmas Park) and then along the F line in Carroll Gardens and Cobble Hill (the hot name for that area is BoCoCa... Bo is for Boreum Hill I think). Brooklyn is quiet, clean and safe if you are smart about where you look. My good friend used this site to decide where he wanted to buy his apartment:http://www.brownstoner.com/He read it daily for years before deciding on Prospect Heights, but maybe your son doesn't need that kind of certainty :)IMO northern Manhattan is a bit overrated (especially the UES), and the Bronx is too far away to really live a NYC life. And as everybody knows, Staten Island can be eliminated out of hand.
