George asks…

What is a cheap city in NJ to live in but commute to NY?

Hello,

I want to live in NJ – as close to NYC as I can get without actually having to bear the high living expenses and high crime. Any suggestions on a city in NJ that has direct access to NYC (train, subway) without moving there and doesn’t havea high crime rate? I also don’t own a car and don’t want to buy one.

Administrator answers:

I agree that NJ is expensive, rethink it for sure. Queens is becoming much nicer and attracting a lot of people who’re looking for affordability (relative) and convenience of the NYC subway into the city. Safety or lack thereof is not so much an issue in the following…1) Astoria
2)Jackson Heights and 3) Kew Gardens. Forest Hills is a bit more expensive but not crazy…great area! Commute times are 30 minutes or so. Take a ride out on the subway sometime. Take the N/W train to the Broadway or Astoria Blvd stops for Astoria. The E/F to Kew Gardens or the E/F/G/R/V trains to Jackson Heights and Forest Hills.

Mark asks…

How to get to 6310 108 Street, Queens, NY from Yankee Stadium, NY?

Help would be much appreciated, thank you! Also, I would like to get there using Subway only, worst case scenario using a few buses.

Administrator answers:

From the Yankee Stadium-161st St. Station take a downtown 4 train to 59th St.station. Transfer there (mezzanine level) to a Forest Hills-71 Av bound R train to 63rd Drive-Rego Park station (on Queens Blvd) . Exit to the street and walk on 63rd Drive to 108th St. Make a left on 108th St. It is about a 5 block walk.

Helen asks…

Story Help: How many acres should his school be?

My characters go to an elite Pre-12 academy for super rig kids. I imagine it to be tucked into the hills outside Los Angeles and Beverly Hills in a bit of a forrest-y area. It’s a relatively larger school in terms of population and the buildings are a combination of Victorian Second empire and Queen Anne architecture with a touch of Spanish colonial and neoclassical. There are several sports fields such as football, lacrosse, soccer, basketball courts, hockey rinks, maybe a golf course, and even hiking and horse back riding trails. There are also quite a few courtyards and secret catacombs once used hundreds of years ago for black magic. And not to forget the actual education buildings! As you can see, I’ve thought a lot about this, but I just can’t think of how many acres to make it!!! It actually holds quite a bit of relevance to the story. So question is, how many acres should this semi-large snobby rich kid school be? Thank you!
Seriously!? Come on dude that’s not helpful. Everytime I post a question there’s some jerk that just rights “yes”! Grrr! Sorry! lol! Please, numbers guys! :)

Administrator answers:

If you want there to be plenty of space for forest areas as well as the many buildings and playing fields, site it on 640 acres. That is 1 mile on each of four sides, and is a lot of space.

For comparison, according to Wikipedia, Harvard University’s main campus covers 210 acres, the medical campus covers 22 acres, and the Allston campus covers 359 acres.

Jenny asks…

What would be a decent book for me to read?

I try to be open to anything, so you can throw anything at me.
Please put book title and author, so that I
I can reference it or whatever
by the way, i am an adult, so adult books are okay.

Administrator answers:

These are some of my favorite series. Keep in mind that some of them are adult and will contain adult content, I will put a warning star next to any adult books. No, I am not trying to corrupt todays youth, but some people are more mature than others. If you want the summaries of these books or have any questions then email me at kellymossad@yahoo.com as that is now my more used account. Happy reading!

James asks…

How can i live and work in Manhattan?

I want to live and work in Manhattan, USA any one can tell me long details, please?

Administrator answers:

A nice area of which you speak about in your budget for rent is in Staten Island which is mostly “American” and quite a safe neighborhood is New Dorp in Staten Island which is fairly convenient to get to manhattan by express bus or a longer local bus ride and a ferry ride to Manhattan. Also eastern Queens which is a mixed area but still with a lot of “Americans” along with mostly decent people who want to live peacefully since they pay a lot of money to live there.
You can try to find an apartment for rent in areas of Queens such as Bayside, Little Neck, Fresh Meadows, Bellerose (Kew Gardens & Forest Hills will be a little more expensive but still doable)
Bayside Fresh Meadows Little Neck Douglaston and Bellerose are very suburban type settings in NYC and they have a good bus system to take you to the subways to get to Manhattan very quickly and cheaply Those are not neighborhoods with one dominant immigrant group where you will feel like you live in a foreign country but those are places where many different types of people feel comfortable to live in due to the low crime and the peaceable and clean areas and suburban type atmosphere.
