Reasons why New York Sucks - Page 103
I figured this is a pretty good place to ask.
I plan on moving to new york in the june, more specifically queens from the west coast. My friend found a place in queens for 1400 a month for a one bedroom, is that pretty standard?
Also, I plan on transferring to Queens College, hows the school? Just want to get my bachelors in accounting, and how hard is it to find a job? Would be looking for a entry level accounting job, have a couple years of experience or literally any job that would pay my part of the rent.
That's an awfully broad question. Queens is a very large place. Where in Queens? What's the apartment like? Is it somewhere you want to live?
I paid a nearly $600 AC bill last August because ConEd had guesstimated my bill due to the strike. When I got my July bill and it was only ~$150 for gas & electric I decided to leave my AC on 24/7 during hot days in August. Then, boom! The bill came.
last year's summer was weird... I remember in the middle of august it was 95ºF then out of nowhere it started hailing 1" spheres of ice. I ran out of my house and slipped on the ice marbles and fell down my porch stairs in a vain attempt to park my car in the garage. Apparently there was a tornado lurking around brooklyn/queens.
this winter has been cold and snowy... so it can be basically described as normal wintery weather...
I have no answer for any of those questions... haha well my friend lives there, so hopefully picked out a decent place. Never been to NY so I cant comment on if thats where I want to live, but I hear its not too far from manhattan, so im not worried.
But for curious as to how Queens college (CUNY) is and job out look, just need to pay for rent :(
