So, we took a drive throughout areas of NJ (we have family there) a couple days ago and a drive through LI yesterday (we have friends there). I think we've pretty much narrowed our search to Summit, NJ and the CSH school district homes that aren't more than 10 mins from the train station.

Port Wash def had appeal as far as the town goes - but the traffic congestion would drive me mad. We didn't see much congestion in the CSH area. Is that typical? Or was it slow just b/c it was Christmas?

Compared to Port Washington, CSH's "congestion" is nothing! Over the years, I've discovered some "back roads" to avoid the congestion of "downtown" Port Washington to get to where I'm going - it can be very frustrating indeed.
Main Street (25A) going through downtown CSH can get a bit heavy during rush hour, because there's only one lane each way, but once you get to know the area, you'll learn to avoid even that.

My house was 3-5 min away from the CSH station and parking was close to the platform (I'd take an early train) - which made commuting as easy as possible.

Thx for the info. What do you consider *early*? Are you always able to get a seat on the train?

1. Good point - early is relative . My regular train was what is now the 6:20 out of CSH (leaving Huntington at 6:15); sometimes earlier, but never later than the 7:17, and at that hour, parking was further away, but compared to most stations, still close. If you take a ride by the station, you'll see what I mean.

2. The train starts at Huntington; when it gets to CSH, it's not full yet, so yes, I was always able to get a seat. If the train is short (fewer than normal cars), it can be "grab whatever you can find" but it rarely happened. Most riders will find a "regular car" that suits them, be it fellow passengers or the best location to get off when getting into Penn Station. Once they do, they know where to stand on the platform; when the doors open, they're right there to enter

Hope this helps
