Occasionally you can pick up a real steal in Port Washington in the 500K-600K range. 42 minutes to Penn Station.

Its close on peak.
Best kept secret is the express to Jamaica then the Express E to midtown.
I used to be at my desk in an hour.

Besides Im sure OP wouldnt mind a 66 minute commute.

FWIW the 609a to Penn gets in at 702a
721a gets in at 823a
Pretty awesome.

Clearly the answer to this question is Syosset. Mlsli.com is listing about 50 houses in Syosset/Woodbury for under 600k. Its one of the best school districts in Nassau either 2nd or 3rd I believe. Commute time to downtown through BK is probably like 1h5m. Great Neck, Jericho, Garden City, and Manhasset, Syosset are the best schools in Nassau. Syosset is probally the largest and most affordable of them. The other school districts are all pretty much equal.
