Thoughts on living in Astoria
I will be moving to NYC in July to work for M/B/B. I have been talking to some buddies and it sounds like your dollar goes a lot farther in Astoria, and its only like 15 minutes to midtown (possibly more if they close the W). Does anyone live out there now / have friends that do? I would love to know what the area is like in terms of safety and how the housing is in terms of value.
