My husband and I have looked at a house in Westwood, NJ to rent. We both work in Manhattan. He works on Fifth Ave in the 40's, and I work on the Upper East Side. I am looking at the different ways of commuting-driving, train, bus or ferry. I was wondering if anyone has suggestions on the quickest way.

I definitely would not drive in because of traffic. There is a train station in the middle of town and A LOT of residents commute via train. I really do not know much about the bus and the ferry should not be too bad but I wouldn't be surprised if it took 40 minutes to get to it in the morning. From Westwood I would go by train...they also just drastically increased train service last year along the Pascack Valley Line (the one that goes through Westwood).

i don't commute on a work day, i'm just talking about on weekends when i go into the city. driving is a huge pain due to traffic. buses can be hit or miss, again depending on traffic at the bridge. the train is most effective, but can be pricy. the ferry is a pleasant ride, but also can be difficult to drive to at rush hour.

Default Renting

Have you considered renting at an apt complex? I currently live at the Highlands at Westwood and many people that live here commute to the city. The bus stop is a 5 min walk and the train station is 2 miles down the road. Both take about an hour or less to get into the city. A 1 bedroom is about 1,700 and they are running specials, i think. Westwood is a great area..i've been here at the highlands for 5 years and have nothing to complain about. Maintenance is 24/7 so you never have to worry about issues that go wrong, he lives on property. (another great perk is washer/dryers in the unit!)

If you need more information, i'd be more than happy to help!
