View Full Version : Need Advice Commuting from Somerset County to NYC

September 25th, 2006, 10:10 AM
I live in Bedminster, NJ about a 45 min. drive west of Manhattan and a 1hr. 15 min. train ride to Penn Station. My job interests are taking my search into the city and I've come across some amazing opportunities, but I'm already dreading the idea of a long commute. I just bought a house 1.5 years ago, so moving closer is out of the question for a little while. Being fairly new to NJ, wanted to get some advice. Would anyone out there suck up the longer commute to NYC if a great job offer came up or just say no? I'm thinking I could suck up the commute for a year,then look into moving close once I've been in my house for at least 2 years to avoid capital gains taxes for selling too early. What are some opinions out there?
