the PATH station is 33rd and 6th, Penn Station 32nd bewtween 7th and 8th, those crosstown blocks are very long there and can easily add 10 minutes to the walk

Default Why not Brooklyn?

I know someone who has a 1br apt in Brooklyn (Bensonhurst/Midwood) for $1100 a month. Huge apartment in a nice building. Also it has alot of parking, which is rare in Brooklyn. You can take the F train to Manhattan in 40-50 minutes. Cheaper too at $2 each way.

income taxes are a bit cheaper in NJ than NY and ct has a strange system, they tax income and assets

Check out the towns between North Bergen and Cliffside Park in NJ if you will have a car with you.
I have a car..so if I find some place between North Bergen and Cliffside Park..do I drive to the PATH station...? Journal Square seems to be the closest station from that area....please advise..thx again..

You can take a bus to Journal square or drive and park there. I have no idea about the parking now. You can take a bus to the Port Auth directly from many of those areas also. I don't know how much that costs these days but you can either walk or take the subway to grand central from PA once you get into the city. Also if you live in the Ft Lee area there is a bus or buses that take you over the GW bridge to the 179th street subway which you can take downtown.

You can definitely walk from Port Authority Bus Term to Grand Central in 20 min (It's probably just about 1 mile). I think it would take most people a little longer to get there from Penn (about 1.5 or 1.75 mile?). Depends on your walking speed, traffic and sidewalk conditions, weather, etc.
