Dear Friends,

I've taken a job at American Express, which is headquartered in the financial district. I have a family of five with children ages 6,4,2, and my wife is a stay-at-home mom.

As the position pays around 100k I'm wondering what most fathers in my situation would be, where can I live that has decent public schools (can't afford private), somewhat reasonable housing (guessing a 3 bed-2 bath for less than 2k a month) and a palatable commute.

I've done some cursory research on surrounding cities near NYC (Jersey City, Elizabeth, Union City) and father away (East Hanover, Livingston, etc.) I'm not sure what would be best blend of the above criteria. I would greatly appreciate your help in refining my search as the options seem overwhelming.

In kind: You need to post in the main New Jersey forum as this section doesn't cover the places you referenced well enough.

You can add in West New York and Weehawken as it's in the "same area" as Jersey City and Union City as those areas are very urban FYI.
