Is that because you're an agent?

You should read the terms of service that you agreed to:
Real Estate Agents and other businesses will not advertise their services nor solicit business in their posts. Create a free business profile by going to http://www.city-data.com/profiles/add and fill out your forum profile instead. Do not include links to your websites, MLS listings, etc. in your posts. Do not try to push the envelope by attempting to hide your intentions. Do not solicit business by DMs. Show your knowledge about the area and help people and you will get leads naturally. Real estate agents should join the usergroup for them here: http://www.city-data.com/forum/profi...editusergroups. It will set your user title and add an icon next to your name, so you will get free advertising with your posts.

We spent 6 months looking for what I think you are looking for: a town with great schools, 30-40 minute commute to Manhattan Midtown, with a quaint downtown and main street with shops and a theater, and great schools. We wanted to rent a house with a yard, close to great dog park (we have 2 dogs), very safe with low/no crime. Summit/Milburn/Chatham were too far, S Orange doesn't have great schools and crime situation wasn't excellent, no houses in Jersey City and rents were high and forget finding pet friendly places. Our son was in HS so Lodi wasn't an option and they don't have a quaint downtown. In any case, we settled on Rutherford. We love it here. In fact, we've decided to buy a house - in fact if you want, you can have our 2/2 that is a 1 min walk to express bus and 5 min walk to train station and downtown main street area, 1980 sq ft, with garage - for $2400/mo. Yes that's right, $2400/mo. Here is a link https://hotpads.com/42-maple-st-ruth...townhouse&z=15 And if you want to spend more, there are some nicer units available for more money, but less than what you can spend.

Take the 190 bus, gate 224 from PANY - it is the fastest/cheapest way to get to Rutherford. Get off at the train station stop, talk a walk up main street - you will fall in love with the town. Good luck!
