I lived there this last year. It may not seem far, but trust me it is a HUGE pain in the ass having to walk that distance to go home from JG. It's a good 20 minute walk, sometimes more, to get to school. This is especially annoying when it gets unbearably cold during the winter. There is laundry in the building, and generally the apartments are pretty nice. The area itself is also pretty nice but there isn't very much around it. I honestly would recommend not living here due to the inconvenience.
Thanks for the reply! Unfortunately, I think I'm stuck for this year, but hopefully it's not too bad; I'm plenty used to the NY cold thankfully. But yeah, 20 minutes doesn't compare very favorably to 2 minutes.
