So I am finishing college in CT but I am going to start work in Midtown Manhattan in June. I am looking for a place somewhere in Brooklyn or Queens. I dont know anything about the area so it is kinda like shooting in the dark. I have been through apts on craigslist but it is impossible to see anything from those. I would need to know what is a good area to live in on approx $ 800-1000 a month. Does anyone know of a good realtor that I could get in touch with who would maybe know more about this as well. Thanks

It's been quite a number of years since i've lived in Queens, but you might want to try Fresh Meadows. The appartments use to be pretty reasonable back then, and the access to Manhattan wasn't bad using the express bus or bus and subway. As far as i know they haven't gone Co-op yet.

yea fresh meadows is great. So is bayside area, u can take the Long island railroad straight into manhattan, its only like 15mins. My mother is a broker so i pretty much know whats what. if it was up to me, i highly reccomend Kew gardens and forest hills area, or brooklyn heights. Feel free to pm me.

do a search at realtor.com - selected more search options. be specific, this is a great resource for getting an idea about pricing.

Find roomates... and lots of em! I would look into Hoboken NJ maybe. I think its a little cheaper then manhatten. Plus you can take the path train to midtown. I would sell the car personally, you will have no need for it living/working in the city. Rent for a studio is a decent area will run upwards of $1500/month. You might be able to squeeze by on a somewhat shitty place for $1000/month
