We (me, wife and our 5 m.o. daughter) are moving to the US in Nov. While my office is in Danbury, I will be working from home most of the time and do not need to go to office more than once a month. I will need to travel to NYC maybe 7 days in a month and will need to take flights to LA/ other cities 3-4 times every month.

I am looking to rent and my budget is upto $1600-1700 p.m. I will definitely want at least 2 BRs (one of them will be my home office) and 2 baths. More the better!

Which are the places I should be looking at? I would like my son to have a good time growing up, and the place should be foreigner-friendly (we will be legal immigrants ).

Any help will be appreciated.

I am confused by your post. Do you have one or two children? Wouldn't you want 3 bedrooms (one for you and your wife, one for your child/children and one for a home office)? Anyway, rentals in good communities close to New York are more expensive the closer you get to it. Danbury would be a good place to start. The area has a lot of housing options and it is accessible to New York City. I believe you could find what you are looking for there. There are a lot of immigrants in the Danbury area, so you should feel somewhat comfortable. Good luck and welcome to Connecticut. Jay

Danbury is very foreigner-friendly. I have lived in the area for all of my 40 years and I have seen many waves of immigrants arrive, from Portugal, Vietnam, other Southeast Asian countries, Brazil, Ecuador, China, etc.

Regarding your apartment, check out the Avalon Communities, they have 3 complexes in Danbury, all have fitness, pool, etc. Also, there is a brand new apartment complex right on the Danbury / NY border which would make your New York trips a little shorter. I drive by them every day, they are finishing construction on the last buildings but the completed buildings are occupied. I think a 2BR is more than you want to spend, but they may be giving some incentives because it's new. It's called Crown Point at The Reserve, here is their web site: crownpointreserve.com

May I ask what country you are from?
