I am considering moving to North Shore Towers, but hesitate due to the commute. I work in midtown and am concerned the commute might be 2+ hours one way. I understand there are express buses that run directly from the Towers to midtown. But, the bus schedule times the trip as 75 minutes which is probably longer with traffic, weather, etc. The bus ride also does not seem that "express" going local along Union Turnpike to Queens Blvd. before finally hitting the LIE by Queens Center. With all the traffic lights and bus stops, that must be a loooooooooong stretch. And, I must still walk 10-15 minutes once in Manhattan from the bus stop.

The alternative would be to take the LIRR. But, I doubt I could park in the Great Neck or Floral Park (Nassau) lots as I am not a resident in either town. Walking to/from the bus that runs along Lakeville Road seems hazardous especially in the winter. The sidewalk is poorly lit and I wonder if it would even be shoveled.

I appreciate any insights anyone may have about this. Looks like a great complex, but commuting four or more hours a day is too much.

Thanks for the suggestion. Since the Towers are technically in Queens, I thought it would be more appropriate to post here despite literally being able to cross the street into Nassau County from there! Already got one response on that board...hoping for more insights here and there.
