Default Where to live in south brunswick if need to commute to NY?

I am looking at buying/renting a condo/townhome in south brunswick, really like the dayton area. But my wife needs to commute to NY. Is there a such a place in south brunswick that is good to commute to NY? or I am stuck with Princeton or other cities along the NE corridor line?thanks!

You can take the bus at the 8A park and ride on rt-130. About 1 hr to port authority.

I too would look in the Kendall Park section of South Brunswick. You can catch an express bus to Manhattan on Rt. 27. You're very limited though to condo's & townhomes though, most are single family homes. If you expand your search to Franklin Park (on the other side of Rt. 27) there are many condo & townhome & apartments to choose from.

Both of these are good options for the bus into Port Authority.

I live in Dayton and usually wind up getting dropped off at the bus stop on 130 if I need to get into NYC. Sometimes I'll drive up to New Brunswick, park in the Ferren Parking Deck and take the train also.

If you live in Princeton Walk or Nassau Square, a bus to NYC stops right outside of those developments that goes to NYC. My husband did the commute that way and was very happy with it. If you live in Royal Oaks and don;t mind walking the 3.4 of a mile down Henderson, you have the same option.

The 8A Park and ride is on RT 130 very, very close to Dayton..maybe a mile ? Always plenty of parking if you're there by 7. Hope it helps.
