My 21 year old daughter needs a sublet for July and August. She is considering one in Astoria (36 & Broadway area). She will be in NYC for a production that will require rehearsals 7pm-11pm every night somewhere in Manhattan (the location details are not finalized yet). I'm concerned about her getting from the subway stop to the sublet. Are there restaurants/shops open late? Are there people on the streets or does everything shut down? Also, I've read that it is difficult to get a cab into Queens from Manhattan at night, is this true?
