If she works at Columbia and you likely work in Manhattan, check out the Riverdale section of the Bronx. Easy access to Manhattan, reasonable rents, safe. Only downside is there's no real night-life to speak of. But you're so close to Manhattan it doesn't really matter.

Amen. The best of all worlds quite literally, the borough of Queens may be the most diverse place on Earth.

I picture the "never leaving Manhattan" crowd like the "this is fine" dog chilling in their 300 sq foot apartment. This is particularly applicable to my fellow millennials struggling to make rent but refusing to consider the outer boroughs. Of course, if you are extremely wealthy, by all means Manhattan might be the place for you. But if I had millions I'd just get a dope apartment in Queens

I lived in queens my whole life. Sure I'd like to live in manhattan for certain conveniences but I'm really not into paying 3x for half the space while still having a 45 minute commute.

To each his own, but I for one have absolutely no interest in living in Queens or Manhattan. Not crazy about where I am now (Staten Island), but would rather be in LI, NJ, or Westchester.

I'm in Bayside, so it's basically like living on Long Island

How long of a commute to Manhattan can you get prices like that (3x less) in Queens?

From Bayside, I take the bus to Flushing, and then the 7 (usually express) into Manhattan (I go to Times Square).

That's about an hour commute right there. Obviously depends a lot on the bus though and how traffic is doing/how much the bus has to stop.

If I worked in midtown then maybe 30 minutes but I work downtown so it could take 45 minutes but usually an hour.
