Assuming you mean Manhattan, any neighborhood in Brooklyn close to Manhattan with subway service provides a good commute

Brooklyn Heights is only one stop to the downtown business district on multiple subway lines.

Brooklyn Heights, DUMBO, and Williamsburg if we're talking literally quickest to Manhattan, but Brooklyn Heights has the most options of the three.

Whats your definition of best commute? 10, 20, 30 40 mins?
Living 5 mins away in a small apt or 20 mins away in a great size place, rent cost, etc.

It would be helpful to know what constitutes a long commute to you.

Some people think that 30-50 minutes is a long, long commute. HA.

Brooklyn Heights, Downtown Brooklyn, Park Slope, Fort Greene, Williamsburg, DUMBO are going to be a quick commute...probably under 30 minutes. If you are willing to commute longer a lot of neighborhoods outside of that would be fine (more space, lower rent too) like Red Hook, Prospect Heights, Bay Ridge.

Maybe consider some neighborhoods in Queens as well. Astoria/LIC is close to Manhattan.

Really depends on what area of Manhattan (I'm assuming you meant Manhattan vs NYC) you need to be in. If you need to be in Midtown, that's very different than if you need to be in the Financial District.
