Haha. I can't stand it that people simply call the PABT "The Port Authority", but I'm never going to win that one.

well, either not as nice as OP wants or not in an area the OP wants to be but technically its there.

im not exactly sure what income is worth commuting every day to nyc for but i dont think its an income consistent with someone who cant afford more than $2,500 a month for housing.

I tend to agree,,, BUT yet many have done so,,,, Yes? No? And my experiences are more from the 1980's and such.

Out of that list I would scratch off most and keep Nutley, Rutherford, not East Rutherford which is not the same town, Carlstadt, Wood Ridge next door to Carlstadt. Maybe a little further up Bergen County on a rail line which you can find on njtransit.com farther away but higher income area with maybe higher rated schools.

Looks like it's not impossible in West Orange, but it'll have to be a house, and you'll need to be careful about which elementary school the place is zoned for (you don't want Hazel, and Gregory is OK, and that's about the extent of my knowledge).


(And it's "The Bus Terminal of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, Circle 7 Inner, City of Dis, Inferno")

Hahahaha.

I worked in the engineering office when they were building the North Wing. Now it's falling apart. What does that say about me?

Don't answer that!

The PABT will be replaced. Eventually, I will be, too, I suppose.

Well the the votes are in *drum roll* (with family approval of course)

We have narrowed down to Lodi NJ - elementary school rate 8, middle school 9 and within 60 minutes to TimeS Sqr. and 3 br for 2100-2200$ (there's a few). It's a great neighbo(u)rhood - that typical American suburb feel I grew up watching on TV )

Brilliant - hope we get the house !


PS: the 'u' in neighbour is an old but permissible habit for nice Australians like me.

Thank you one and all. Yes other suburbs possible as well.

I recently moved from the Bronx to Fair Lawn. My monthly train ticket is $227. If I take the 7:10 AM train from Radburn to Penn I get to work (53rd and 5th) at about 8:10 AM. The first couple weeks I was taking the bus and that was $167 I believe for the month. On the way home, they have an express train that gets you from Penn to Radburn in about 35 minutes (including a stop in Secaucus). Once you are a resident, you can apply for a monthly permit which is $10/month for commuter parking.

Thanks again!
