    Nice area, particularly during the spring thru fall seasons. Great access to the beach (literally right across street for some apartments) and affordable. Definitely worth subletting during the warmer months. Rockaway Park itself is fairly safe, as is Belle Harbor. Down past 50th street and lower, not as much. Very laid back neighborhood, not too many dining options unless you have a car or call for delivery. Commuting by train is possible as the Rockaways have a Shuttle (S train) running through the islet which transfers to the A. Cons: it's about an hour long commute from the Rockaways to lower Manhattan via the S and A trains.

    This area seems nice from the few times that I have gone through it. Seems like a fitting area for a New Yorker who prefers the quiet and suburban scene. You also get the beach feel in Rockaway Park which is fitting for the summer. The area is somewhat isolated from the rest of New York City and having a car seems kind of essential. The nieghborhood seems more geared towards families with kids as opposed to the young crowd.
