I'm not big on any of the towns listed,haven't been out west yet so not sure how that'd be. Although I'm pretty sick of it here in PA I'd probably try any of those other places.
And what is it with so many people on this thread wanting to live near a big city? I'm right in the pit of it and I tell ya it's no picnic. Of course I never had the desire to ever live near a city so perhaps I am biased.

Well, I live in a very big city and I picked the New Jersey town that's closest to New York.

Avalon is the farthest place in Jersey you could possibly be from New York. It's 150 miles down the shore. Haddonfield (the other Jersey choice) is 90 miles from New York and 10 miles from Philadelphia.


StuckPA, I realize big cities aren't for everyone, but they're obviously quite popular. IMO Philadelphia has its problems, but it's still one of the greatest cities in the U.S.

Incorrect. Haddonfield is only about 90 minutes away while Avalon is about 2.5 hours.

Also incorrect (but not by much). Cape May would be the farthest point in NJ from NYC.

Why were you told Avalon? You were tellin' us! haha

Haddonfield is a suburb of Philadelphia (about 5 miles away). So not only is it much closer to NYC than Avalon, it also has Philly right there.
