It's not easy to find rentals anywhere these days. Do you want just a room? Speak to people who live in the neighborhood. The Rockaways are very long, with many neighborhoods. Do you know which area you want to live in? Give it some thought and let me know. Maybe I can help.
What is negative about Arverne? There are beautiful, renovated homes priced reasonably. It is near the Ocean and the Bay for swimming, fishing, boating. There is a whole new development of one and 2 family homes in the $600,000 price range. Those houses are really beautiful and brand new. The taxes are low. The air is fresh, the shopping is new. The A train provides cheap transportation into the city and there are plenty of buses. The connections to Brooklyn are excellent and it is beautiful. What could be bad?... more
