Mine is 60 miles each way, and I don't mind it. Most of the drive is scenic back roads, and the last leg, on 55, is fine because my exit is well before the log jam near 42. I used to live in Marlton and commute to college in center city, and even though it was much less mileage, it took just as long and was infinitely more stressful.

If you all commute, what are your hrs for the day? Do you have a 9-5 job? Or do some of you work longer hrs? My husband works 10/11 hr days as it is, so when we move to jersey, he'll add an 1 1/2 - 2 hrs to his day. I hope it won't be too much.

I live in Hoboken within walking distance of the PATH, work in UES... my commute (incl. the walk) is about 35 minutes end to end. Love it!

My husband works in Parsippany and drives. His commute is about an hour or so. We leave together at 7 AM.

I work a '9-5' job, but usually get in around 7:40. My husband and I both try to leave by 5 daily though. We like our evenings.

I look forward to moving to Jersey and shortening my commute. I live in Southern Brooklyn and work Downtown Manhattan. I take a bus and 2 trains each way, and it takes me 1 and 1/2 hours each day, when everything is running well, which is hardly ever. And I do not work 9-5. Its hard, I miss my kids. During the week, I barely spend any time with them. But who would give up a job these days simply because the commute is too long. And I read, a lot.

My day is usually 13 hours door to door 5 days a week. Some days, after the 13 hour day, I spend another 5-6 hours working from home just to go into another 13 hour day. FUN!!!

I have to admit my hours are pretty flexibloe, as is my start time and finish time, so that helps. I don't think I could do that commute on top of an 11 hour day!

Montclair to Midtown about 55mins if the train/subway run on time.

No 9-5. I leave late and get home late.
