I might have found the right place in englewood. But was wonder what the commute is like to midtown(45th street). Whats the best route in general?

englewood has some very bad sections, hopefully you've done some leg work,
the only way via public transport to mid town is via a NJT bus to the PA, there might be a bridge bus and then subway but that could be slow.

Anything west of engle st is considered pretty bad, east of that is OK. But that is changing, the west side is being developed now. Do you know where the drug fair is in Englewood, it is on ivy lane, and is close to Tenafly? That area is OK.

If you are driving a car to NYC, then always take the lower level. You can go up palisades ave, get on Pal Pkwy, or go down grand, and then left on Fort Lee Rd. Do not go to Rt 4 or I-80, it'll will be jammed.

I realize this is an old thread, but when I was looking to move to Englewood, this thread kept popping up becuase I was also trying to find ways to commute into the city.

To get into NYC from Englewood, the best bet is one of the 166 buses. (www.njtransit.com/pdf/bus/T0166.pdf) There's the 166X which runs express to NYC via I-95, the 166T that goes local through Leonia/pal park, and then takes the Turnpike express into NYC, then the 166 Local which just runs local down through weehawken.

I like to catch any of the busses starting from 7:15 - 8:30, depending on what time I have to get to work. For me, it seems like the 166X is only about 10 minutes faster than the 166T, and the 166X's have a tendency to get filled up by the time they reach englewood so there are many that are "standing room only" So I like to take which ever one of these comes by first with seats. Generally I leave my house by 7:15, and am at Port Aurthority by 7:45 - 7:55a. I can usually get door to door in about 1 hr / 1hr 15 mins. (Which I used to live in Queens and it would take me almost as long).

Coming home I take the 166X as the first stop is Broad and E.Sheffield in Englewood, right next to the Cross Creek Pointe, but after i think 8pmish, the X's stop running, and you have to catch the T. The T will run till about 9:30, but after that the T also stops running and your stuck on the local (approx. 1 hr bus ride).

There's also the option of taking one of the busses from Rt4. I've never done this before but my husband has and he says it's pretty easy. There's a NJ transit bus that comes around every 20/30 minutes or so, but then there are also privately owned commuter shuttles that'll take you to the city for about $2.00.

The city of Englewood also offers a trolley service to get around Englewood which I find very useful. I use this in the AM to get over to broad ave and catch the bus. City of Englewood Trolley Service
