I work in Hoboken and have been living in the town for several years. After Superstorm Sandy, we are very disillusioned with the place, especially with the epidemic of watermain breaks, recently. We've been kind of Hoboken/NY centered, and I'm not really familiar with other towns in NJ from which I could commute to Hoboken by train. We're an older couple (60s), one small dog, one car that needs a parking space (replaced after the storm). My husband is disabled, so proximity to a good hospital is really important. Anyone have any suggestions. Low $2000s or less for 2 bedroom would be desirable (we're at $2700, now, but my salary isn't keeping up with COLA).

You could probably get a 1BR in downtown JC for that price if you don't want to move...Weehawken is probably an option as well. Why not stay on the light rail...you could easily find a place in a luxury complex in Bayonne or any of the towns north of Hoboken for that price.

Morristown? Would be a little less than an hour on train; wasn't sure how long was acceptable to you.

There is a rail that goes from Hackensack to Secaucus (you would have to transfer to Hoboken) but the station is very close to Hackensack Medical.

The only thing is finding a good apartment that allows dogs in Hackensack is a little tough (having this issue right now)

I would highly recommend a full-furnished condo/apt in JC Heights or by Hamilton Park area for below 2k. JC to Hoboken is very easy either by bus (87) Lightrail or PATH

Morris & Essex is one line that goes into Hoboken.

You can look at www.njtransit.com to see all the towns on that line & others that go into Hoboken.

Try Summit. Train goes into Hoboken. Trip's about 35 minutes.

Overlook Hospital is excellent. Our son had minor surgery there as a child. Wonderful place.

My hubby also has chronic health issues. The care he gets in Central NJ far, far exceeds anything he got in Hudson County, both doctors & the hospital. His health has greatly improved in the years since we moved down here.

Every NJT line except the Northeast Corridor Line and the Raritan Valley Line has at least some trains that go to Hoboken. All trains on the Main Line, Bergen County Line and Pascack Valley Line go to Hoboken.
