Hey guys, recently I was offered an internship with the New Jersey Nets, and I was wondering if it would be realistic to drive from Moorestown (where my family lives) up to the Izod Center in East Rutherford for work each day?

about how long of a drive is that?

is it even a realistic option?


thanks in advance

Default Not really practical

Mapquest says 82 miles in an hour-and-a-half: Driving Directions from Moorestown, New Jersey to Izod Center in 50 Rt-120 East Rutherford, New Jersey

If you're traveling during off-hours, it may be doable but it'll "become old" really fast. Making it worse, during rush hour, add 30-45 minutes each way.

IMO, it's not really practical.

It's doable if you can leave early and be home late and just say, my life is going to suck during the week and be all about work and commuting.

I wouldn't do it if you have a spouse or kids, they'll never see you. And I wouldn't plan on doing it forever. But if the job works out, maybe you could move up closer.

For 3 months I would probably just suck it up.....especially if its something you really want to do.
