Easy commute, really nice, small-town atmosphere. Your wife would enjoy "the girls" here. 5 minutes from the Beach, too. I'm a Realtor....happy to help! If you don't plan to have kids for a while, also consider Red Bank. A fun town, close to Holmdel, and right off the Parkway. Easy 1 hr by train to NYC.
Here we go again. Red Bank is NOT a 1 hour-train ride to Manhattan. Not in this universe.

If you're going to shave 20 minutes or so off the travel time each way why not just really exaggerate and say it's a 45 minute ride.

so is townelake a decent place?
I have a few friends who moved to Sayreville recently, of the non-white variety. I don't think it would fit your needs.

I don't know about Belle mead but Princeton and West Windsor have sizable Asian immigrant populations.

Manhattan isn't a place, it's a state of mind.

On the other hand, he could get there in 10 minutes riding his unicorn (isn't that the way most of these people with the surprisingly short commutes travel ?)

unicorns are for the poor lower-middle class, for someone so awesome they should travel by griffons at the minimum, a phoenix is more preferrable though so the gold-digger wife can showoff the shining colors. On the other hand if he indeed gets the hot burning phoenix, it wont work so well with his mistress the ice queen.

You want to be close to the beach (NJ) AND be a quick commute to BROOKLYN?

Not.

Trust me, I have looked.

Quickest way to Brooklyn might be a 3 part commute:

Get to Hoboken
Take PATH to WTC
Take subway to Brooklyn

OR, you can find some train/bus lines in some towns like Montclair (Montclare?) and try your luck with that.

Your best bet would probably be, sadly, going to NYS. Commuting with Metro North to Grand Central and taking the subway from there down to Brooklyn.

oh crap, cross that off the list.

when i went to marlboro high school there were 33 blacks in the school. i remember one of them threatened to grabs my nuts and squeeze them on the lunch line. i believe he wanted a dollar.

my nuts are way too delicate plus im going to be starting a family soon. so for my nuts' sake, we need to stick with my diversity requirements.
