- Tale of two towns I'm not that familiar with Long Island City. Jersey City is fine. It's not that cheap. I know a lot people who live there. And they really like it. It's quiet, but still like a town. Okay, it's a bit boring, too. But it's really nice there. —Kavita, Astoria
- Stay close Long Island City because at least it's still part of the city so you have the subway and you still feel close to everything. —Gino, East Harlem
- The devil you know Neither, really, but if I had to choose, I guess, Long Island City because it's still Queens. I know Queens well; that's where my parents live. Good restaurants, access to all the city stuff you like, but a little cheaper. —George, Washington Heights
- Jersey strong I like Jersey City. People underestimate it, I think, because of the whole Jersey thing. But yeah, I know people who have moved there. It's more affordable, quieter, cleaner. So they don't care what people think. —Marie, Hamilton Heights
- Staying put in the city I'd go to Long Island City. I've been there. It's kind of cool, has a city vibe, but less intense. And it's still the city and still on the subway, so that's a huge bonus. —Susan, Hamilton Heights
Verdict: Sorry Jerz, the subway gives Long Island City the edge!
