I want to find a large 1 or 2 bedroom place in Queens that is a less than 5 min walk to the 7 line. But other than part of LIC, I am not at all familiar with any of the neighborhoods eg sunny side, Jackson, corona, flushing etc. Would any of you here have any suggestions on good safe quiet neighborhoods/ streets blocs. Nearby coffee shops, access to grocery shops is imp but i don’t care about going out/ night out. I am in very late 30s

I loved living in Sunnyside. I lived on 48th and Skillman which was the start of the Gardens. So pretty there.

since there’s a consensus on Sunnyside (lol) is there a presence for Sunnyside vs sunnyside gardens. Should I essentially look for a place between Northern & Queens Blvd?

North of Queens Blvd is nicer.

For those who have obtained the CFF certification:
I was asked to put together a working plan to obtain my CFF credential. I’m aware of the 2 certificate program (Core and Specialized) through the AICPA that will lead to the CFF. Does anyone have experience in how long it would take to complete the certificates and if there are other necessary or helpful study materials that would be useful? For background, I’m 6 months into working at this firm and have touched a variety of cases.
