Commuting to NYC (Columbia U?)
I would really like to keep my car so I'm considering living in NJ and commuting to Columbia University for grad school, probably not everyday but frequently.
Would this be a ridiculous commute? How much time (realistically) should I expect to commute each day? I'm thinking of areas like Fort Lee since Columbia is on the upper side, but there seems to be no trains running, only buses. Would that be a safe commute (considering that the area around Columbia might not be too friendly for a young female)?
Oh, and my budget is about 1000/month rent for a studio space or 1bedroom, is that feasible? Otherwise I might as well just sell my car and move into the city to somewhere cheap (like get roommates and live in a tiny closet in the city) .
