Hi all,

I am currently living in lower east side and like it here. I am considering a job opportunity in Elmwood park, NJ. I am thinking about driving. Is this doable? I have a small child with the nanny at home so getting home timely is really important.

What would be the shortest commute? I did drive through GWB once going there. It took me 40 minutes during non-rush hour traffic.

The UWS would make a difference in your commute. You can be at the bridge in a few minutes, though some days the Hudson Crossings can all be bad headed back to the city, but the GWB is generally better than the tunnels. The FDR can be very backed up in the afternoon, just getting from Harlem to the E60s, so if you're on a time schedule, I would definitely stick with the west side for ease of commute because it can take much longer to get to the LES.
