Longisland, Queens Area and school information
Long Island is a long, narrow island in the eastern part of New York City. Nassau County (county) and Suffolk County (county) are the main areas called Long Island, and the west side of Long Island belongs to New York City and is divided into Queens and Brooklyn. Long Island is generally a very upscale neighborhood, with lots of detached homes with quiet gardens. Also, since Queens is close to New York City, there are many apartment-type properties for international students and singles. Many Long Island expatriates live near Port Washington, while JFK airport expatriates live in the Forest Hills area of Queens. On the other hand, many local workers and international students in New York live in Astoria, Sunnyside, and Forest Hills in Queens.
It has been safe for a long time and is said to be a high-class district in Queens. Convenient for commuting to Manhattan by subway in about 20 minutes. The elementary school district has a good reputation in New York City, so many Japanese families with small children live there. The shopping street is large and the contents of the shops are substantial, so you can live without a car. There is also a Japanese grocery store “Sakuraya” and a rental furniture store Koshin. There are few detached houses and many apartment-type properties. There are also skyscrapers like Pinnacle and Windsor, where expatriates live. Because of its good access to LaGuardia Airport and John F Kennedy Airport (JFK Airport), many airport workers live here.
A little closer to Manhattan than Forest Hills. There are many large malls such as IKEA and COSTCO, and rents are cheap, so many international students and local Japanese live here. In recent years, rents in Astoria and Forest Hills have soared, so Lego Park has become popular because of its low rent, high quality apartments, and good security. There are many large old condominium types called co-ops.
Close to Forest Hills, popular with JFK airport workers. Because the Long Island Railroad (LIRR) and the subway can be used at the same time, it is very convenient. There is also a large park, and the environment is very rich for raising children. Security is good. Recently, Queens College, where the number of international students is increasing, also goes by bus from this place.
There is a Queen’s Mall with Target and Macy’s, which is very convenient. There is also a Chinatown, there are many cheap properties, and the number of Japanese students studying abroad is increasing.
A big city with a Chinatown and a Korean town. Restaurants are plentiful.
Many Japanese students moved to Astoria because rents in Manhattan were so high. Astoria is now the most popular district for international students and Japanese working locally. The area was originally inhabited by many Greeks. There are many cheap 3- and 4-story rental apartments, and they are open to accepting Japanese people. The security is stable and there are clean apartments. The Japanese grocery store “Family Market” is also near Astoria Broadway station. There are many large shopping streets such as Steinway, 30 Ave, Broadway, and Ditmars, and there are many cheap stores that are closely related to daily life, so life is very convenient. It has an atmosphere similar to downtown Japan, and there are many fashionable Greek cafes. It is always popular because Manhattan is only 15 minutes away by subway, and there is a shortage of rental properties.
Great location, 15 minutes to Manhattan on subway line 7. There are many large old condominiums called co-ops, and there are a few rental apartments. There are many Korean restaurants. It is convenient because you can go to Grand Central Station in Midtown with one train. Laguardia Community College, where many Japanese students attend, is within walking distance from Queensboro Plaza.
The area is a mixture of various races such as Latinos, Indians, and Koreans. It has a rather chaotic atmosphere, but the rent is high because the express stops.
There is a Korean supermarket and life is convenient. 17 minutes by subway to Manhattan.
Long Island City
Long Island City
Area on the opposite bank of the East River from Midtown. In recent years, it has grown into an area lined with skyscraper apartments along the East River. Despite being so close to Manhattan (10 minutes by subway), new rental apartments can be rented cheaper than in New York. Some properties also offer the best views of Manhattan. The elementary school district has also improved, and the number of children of Japanese expatriates is increasing.
