All those are good, I loved living in Astoria. It's a very quick ride to the Midtown on the subway. Look around the Ditmars Subway stop area. I find that to be the best area of Astoria, the area around Steinway, while having lots of retail, is a little less attractive, Ditmars is more leafy, and still has a lot of retail and is close to the Steinway and Broadway retail areas.

Brooklyn Heights is nice, though I have heard quite expensive.

My brother just moved to Williamsburg (Kosciusko Street sp?) and loves it. 2,000/month for a large three bedroom apartment and right on multiple subway lines so its an easy commute to the city.

I've been hearing nightmare stories about crowding and delays on the L train. Is Bushwick on the L?

No matter where u live expect subway delays, and with Williamsburgh as someone said b4, parts are really Bushwick and labeled Williamsburgh so just know where youre at, and if u want a cheap neighborhood along the east river your a few years too late, im in Sunset Park (a 15min sub ride to canal st. manhattan) which is mostly a Latino and Chinese neighborhood with a few irish straight off the boat, and i can even see the gentrification everyday. Take Red Hook for example, that neighborhood was the HOOD 5yrs ago, now all the yuppies and manhattanites are gettin priced outta manhattan and pricing people outta neighborhoods like Red Hook, Carroll Gardens, Park Slope, Sunset Park, and Clinton Hill
