I decided to start this thread for the NY center folks. It's an opportunity for us to meet before heading to OKC. Other folks are more than welcome to put in a word

I'm hoping to visit there sometime this month or next month. Do you still have the manager's name and contact info? I got a class date already, March 16th. I'm actually CTI, I ended up in the middle of them changing procedures, so I'm just now getting a date. I'm assuming that you might end up with the same class date as I. All the best at the PEPC!!

Thanks, I really appreciate it. I'm currently in Queens. I was born in Jamaica then my family decided to move. After seeing how things worked at the airport, as far as how the planes get sent out and come in, I decided that it would be an interesting and challenging career for me. How about you? I hope we end up in the same class.

You guys recommend any areas around ZNY to look for apartments? I live in Jersey now and don't plan on driving to/from LI every day... so I'll need to look for an apartment out there.

ZNY is in Ronkonkoma, and that is a pretty cheap area. i would also suggest Centereach where i live. its a decently priced area. also, selden, coram are probably the cheapest...

I live in Levittown in Nassau County...It isn't as far out as bippoptl lives but its about a 30-40 minute ride average to the center. Nice area and decently populated and such.....some areas out east on LI things become quite spread out.

i only live about 10 minutes from ZNY over here in centereach. and areas start to thin out MUCH further east then where i live, and where ZNY are. i would stay away from the north or south shore cause they get expensive. and go from Lake grove (east) to coram. that will give you the cheapest.

Lake Grove, Centereach, Ronkonkoma, Lake Ronkonkoma, Holbrook, Holtsville, Selden, Coram, Port Jefferson, Port Jeff Station.....you can also try Mt. Sinai, Miller Place, or Rocky Point but these are a little further.........furthest in this list would probably be 20 minutes with no traffic, and maybe up to 40 minutes with

I haven't started looking for apartments as of yet. I figure that I would start when I'm almost done at OKC? How much is reasonable?

you can probably find an apartment for one person, like a studio, for around 800-900 dollars. NY Sucks..haha
