My son will be attending Queens College in the fall and we are looking for a hotel that is reasonably priced nearby the college, close to a bus line and/or subway line. Not sure if I can have everything I'm looking for but it doesn't hurt to ask and gather as much information as possible.
1. Not sure if I'll be coming int LGA or JFK (Coming from Honolulu), but want somewhat decent hotel near the Queens College area with a bus line/subway line to get to the college and nearby shopping to pick up necessities.
2. No car, so must rely on public transportation only. Will want to travel to Manhattan for a day trip, so near subway would be great. I don't know anything about this area and where a good place to pick up needed college living items. Is there a walmart, target, Ross's, a mall nearby? What supermarket is closet to Queens college?
I hope I'm making sense. Just looking for some good ideas, tips, etc.... Never been to Queens College, so trying to educate myself before we travel clear across the USA from Oahu.
Looking forward to anyone's input.
