Hi all. I'm hoping to gain some insight on neighborhoods to choose or avoid while looking to buy a home in Nashua. We would like to move here from White Plains NY this year. We have relatives in NH and love the people we've met and the state in general but have only really spent time near Keene and north.
My wife will be staying home with our 2 kids (both under 2yrs) and obviously I don't want to worry about her being safe while rambling about town when I am at work. There is a strong possibility that the only comparable work I will find is in Bedford Massachusetts... would the commute be horrible?
thanks to all,
Will

I was afraid that would be the case. I would truly prefer to live in NH, but so far it looks like Bedford MA is the furthest north I can go and still support the fam...
thanks for the response.

I don't fault you for the preference, but it just isn't practical, particularly if you are driving at regular commute times. The biggest problem area is Boston's "west-side beltway" as I call it, the I-95/128 portion outside the city that runs between Woburn & Rt 3 to go to Nashua and to where 95 divides to head towards Foxboro and Providence. That 20 miles or so is an absolute nightmare and it starts early.
