Is it possible to commute daily between Philadelphia and Brooklyn? What would be the best way?

Possible, yes, Recommended No,
I would take Amtrak from Philly to NYC, then take the subway. But to do that daily would be spending ~6hr (maybe more) a day commuting.

And about $1,400/Month for Amtrak & Subway 30day pass.

I think a few people do it. Sounds horrendous through, a mega commute for sure.

It is possible to take the Philadelphia Septa to Trenton, NJ and from there switch to a NJ Transit train to Manhattan which would be cheaper than Amtrak but it would take much longer. So I doubt one could do that daily especially if one needs to go from Manhattan to Brooklyn by subway.
