No. Suburbs may be 2 or 3 degrees cooler, especially at night because of the heat island effect but humidity is the same.

Though today's weather is fair with only about 89%!
Yesterday it dropped real low to 87%, it was 108 degrees though so that didn't help much.
You have obviously never lived in NY/NJ. Same weather as Philly, Bmore and DC in the summer, give or take a few degrees.

Absolutely. They all have terrible humidity. The only place you might escape it a bit is if you live near the ocean, as someone else suggested or perhaps towards the mountains. Have you looked into Rockland or Orange Counties in New York? It might be a bit better up there.

Meh. It's more consistent further south. The NY area often gets some breaks from the humidity. To someone from the west coast, it's probably all the same.

As others said, go near the ocean to get less heat though no less humidity. Long Island is better than the Jersey Shore. Going north of NYC (Hudson Valley) gets you less of both, especially humidity-wise.
