For the uninitiated, Queens is an amazing borough with lots of great restaurants, parks, and people. Its location makes it an ideal place for those looking to save time on commuting while also offering a more tranquil version of city life. Whether you’re considering a move to the borough, or you’re already there and hoping to switch it up, don’t miss out on these affordable apartments!

In fact, these days, landlords are actually advertising listings that are only available a month from now starting in October which is highly unusual for New York. Don’t worry though. We’ve gathered up our list of favorite listings to share with you, so be sure to check them out asap before they’re gone!
