Unless you have a private plane your time frame is impossible. Property taxes are very low throughout the state if the comparison is to NY.

It is possible to get from Wilmington to NYC in less than two hours time IF you take the Acela, the higher speed express train. It takes about an hour and 40 minutes to get to NYC. However, it is pricey and not practical for very frequent journeys. The Northeast Regional train is much cheaper and can be especially cheap if you purchase your tickets well in advance or when Amtrak is running special deals, which they do pretty often on the Northeast Regional coach class. I'm not sure how long the Northeast Regional takes -- a little over two hours I would guess. We always take the Acela, but we only travel on it three or four times a year, tops. We did once take the Northeast Regional back to Wilmington from NYC on an occasion when we were trying to get back from NY as early as possible due to a monster snowstorm coming in -- got up before dawn and got the very first train out of the city. I don't recall how long the journey took but it didn't seem all that much longer than on the Acela.

Doctorjef, you are absolutely correct. I always think people are talking about driving. My sister from LI comes down here on that and rents a car to drive here.
