I'd post this in the "moving to NY" thread, but I kinda have a double question, one that doesn't just pertain to moving to New York.

First, as far as apartment rentals go, which would you say is generally cheaper - Brooklyn or Queens?

Secondly, has anybody been to the Target in Brookyln or Queens? I'm moving to NY from another city, and I work at Target, so I'm currently weighing my options on which store to transfer to.

It doesn't matter so much if you live in Brooklyn or Queens- what matters is which train line you live on. What line would you need for either of these stores? Parts of Brooklyn are incredibly inconvenient from other parts of Brooklyn, and the same goes for Queens.

There is a Target on Queens Boulevard smack in the middle of Queens. It is located by the Queens boulevard line of the subway which basically connects to almost all the lines that run in Queens. There are also some cross-town buses that run in the generally area of the store which cover less mass transit connected areas of Queens.

There's also a Target in Marble Hill, right? I think that's the one I've been to here -- not having been to either the Brooklyn or Queens one, I would guess the Brooklyn one is probably where the action is -- living in Manhattan, it's certainly the one that gets more "talked about" -- my guess, based on no evidence, is that it's bigger/has a more upscale clientele.
