Default Have you looked at...

If you are looking in the Philadelphia area, have you looked at Cherry Hill or Moorestown? Cherry Hill has virtually no crime (rated 3 for personal and property crime - US average is 100...3 is unheard of!). 4BR home that is decent is probably around $350K-$400K. Not sure what you consider reasonable! Moorestown is more expensive, but rated the "best place to live in the US" by CNN Money. 4BR home is $400K plus (very minimum). They both have good school, safe, etc., both on NJ side. Stay away from Camden (so I've heard). I've also heard Cherry Hill has a bit of an older demographic (named best place to retire) doesn't have a "downtown" area and traffic is a bit congested. Both are close to Philly though. I don't have any info about the west side of Philly.

I have relatives that live in Stroudsburg, PA - Pocono area. The husband works in the Bronx in NY and it takes him about 1-1/2 hours. This is right by the Delaware Water Gap. It's nice there.

I would say a town in NY that "borders" NJ and/or Pa would be anything in the lower Hudson Valley- Minisink (wide open spaces), Middletown, anything in this area. Minisink is safer than the Middletown area and possible a few dollars cheaper. The Scotchtown area of Middletown does not share the same city school District. Towns within like 20 to 25 miles of the Pa Nj border would be Goshen, Montgomery and several others.

Default Warwick

Hi there - Warwick NY would be a great choice. Terrific schools, borders close to NJ and PA, and reasonably priced homes can be found.
