Thread: Work in Manhattan, want to live in suburbs - which is better, NY, NJ or CT suburbs?

    Default Work in Manhattan, want to live in suburbs - which is better, NY, NJ or CT suburbs?

    Planning on relocating to NYC area for a job in Manhattan. Don't want to live in the city, would rather commute. Looking for no more than an hour commute via train or subway. With a budget between $1000-$1300 a month for rent on a 1-2 bedroom apartment, what would be some safe, affordable, relatively easy commute areas to target my apartment search? I'm really interested in Connecticut. Or anywhere really - just as long as it's an easy commute via train (park and ride is ideal).

    Which part of Manhattan is your work?

    You might have to get a roommate for the prices you're looking for. I do suggest living in Hoboken, NJ if you want to commute. It has a great night life and is not too far from the city. You can also try Jersey City, but it's not the best area.

    I second the recommendation on Hoboken. Just be sure you pick a spot w/ a bus stop that can take you to the PATH station, or you'll have a longer walk (or more expensive commute, by cabbing it) than you bargained for.
