Default Affordable towns around Jersey City

What would be the most decent, affordable NJ towns to look at that are within 1 hr of public transit commute from NJCU in Jersey City? (besides Hudson county)
I am sure someone will ask what is my budget, and I will say I don't have one cuz I don't really know prices there, just looking for something affordable, comparing to local standards, but not ghetto.

Here is the location of NJCU: New Jersey City University

Thank you.
