Hello! I'm sure this has been discussed here several times before but I wanted a fresh perspective from fellow CD users now.

Can someone recommend some towns within 45 minutes commute time (ideally train) to NY Penn? Here are some things we are looking for:

3 BR/2 BA+ Townhouse
~400K
Newer construction
Good public schools
Safe/family-friendly neighborhood

So far we have West Orange in mind which seems to have a bunch of fairly good THs but the taxes there are crazy and more importantly no train station!

Any other suggestions, ideas, comments?

Thanks!

Our next door neighbor is selling their 3 bedroom TH here in Scotch Plains, and it looks gorgeous. There is a train from Fanwood that you can take (and many busses as well). The schools are great here and their unit looks really nice. Look under Scotch Plains..the development is "The Reserve". Also, the schools are way better than West Orange. Good luck!
