I'd say Summit and Westfield. Summit is the last stop before the train line branches off. Check the njtransit schedules for details on service. I think both these lines have frequent service on weekdays, and service on weekends.

i think it would depend on what part of nyc. i believe that summit and chatham both have mid town direct service, don't think Westfield does.

chatham is only 1 more stop away from summit so commute time difference not much of an issue. parking is more readily available in summit i think.

yes, but the train line splits at summit. Check those train schedules, you will have more frequent trains to/from summit. So commute is more convenient.

agreed, but i think summit or chatham would be a better choice then westfield commute wise for someone wanting mid town direct service.


summit station is only a 5 minute drive from most parts of chatham.

That is definitely a good question because if you work downtown, Westfield is more convenient (NJ Transit --> Newark, then 22-minute PATH train ride to World Trade Center). Getting to Midtown from Westfield isn't a terrible commute, but Summit is MUCH more convenient for that.
