Looking at getting a 2 bedroom apartment with a friend. Most of the secaucus places we've found are not near the train station--more like Centre avenue and the Numbered streets around it (5th street, etc).

Obviously a NYC commute would entail driving to a street near the station, parking, walking to the station, and then getting on a train. Are there any resident parking lots near Secaucus junction?

Lyndhurst has been my ideal pick, as the parking is free, the train pass is cheap ($152/month), works on 3 zone bus rides (girlfriend lives in Hackensack which is a 3 zone bus ride), and apartments are about the same as Secaucus except a lot of flexibility and a much closer highway proximity.

Any suggestions or notes I should be aware of for these areas? Does anyone prefer one over the other?

I think Lyndhurst has more things to do and more around it as part of a town. Secaucus has... well, I hope you like warehouses and large apartment buildings.

If you found a place in Lyndhurst, you could maybe even walk to one of the 2 train stations or bus stops. I would pick Lyndhurst because it's more of like a real town. Secaucus only has a Walmart as a supermarket, Lyndhurst has a Shoprite and a stop&shop, just my opinion.

Question: Where in NYC do you work?

The train in Lyndhurst goes to Hoboken, so from there you have to take PATH either to the WTC or the 33rd Street line (stops at 14, 9, and Christopher).

If you have to go further north in Manhattan, it might be better to change at Secaucus, one stop from Lyndhurst.

I used to live in Lyndhurst and commuted to Tribeca via NJT Train and the Path. I took the train from the Kingsland station to Hoboken then transferred to the Path. Very easy commute and Lyndhurst is a very convenient location. It's nice b/c although it's in Bergen county, you can easily drive down Rt 3 to go shopping on Sundays if you want to.

I hope you've checked out Jo Jo's Pizza on Ridge Rd. I know it's a subjective thing, but...the best pizza & mussels anywhere.
