Are you currently searching for a new place to rent?

For all of you desperate souls who got an expired apartment lease for Christmas: Try Jackson Heights.

Considering how much attention this Queens neighborhood has been getting lately, we at Agorafy are wondering—how come we don’t live there ourselves yet?

Seriously though, Jackson Heights has a great potential. While its signature trait is the genuinely multi-cultural experienceit also has other merits. The neighborhood is just a 30-minute subway ride to the city, and the local businesses are booming. The rents are surprisingly sane—a median asking rent for a two-bedroom apartment doesn’t exceed $2,300.

Besides, “Jackson Heights often serves as a stepping stone for newcomers who migrate to the city from other states and countries.” So if you’re a transplant who has to go through NYC apartment-hunting ordeal for the first time, take notes.
