Looking at apartments in the areas above tomorrow from out of state- IL. Any input would be helpful! The commute to work would be to Park Ridge, NJ.

Default Hello,

There are condos and apts. to choose from but it all depends on your price range, the closer to NY the less you get for your money. Try Hackensack, Maywood, Fort Lee, Tenafly. Good Luck.

I can tell you about Wayne...I live nearby. Wayne is an upper-middle class municipality of over 50,000 inhabitants. There are some wealthy people and there are some blue-collar workers, but overall it is a bit pricey. Despite, it large population, it is spread out and is definelty more suburban and less urban than Fort Lee. However, along the Highways of 23 and 46 is an almost endless almost shopping centers and stores for whatever you need. Personally, I would prefer Wayne over Fort Lee because it is more spread out. Fort Lee is almost urban. However, the public transportation in Wayne to go to the malls or NYC is pretty good, just like in Fort Lee (write back if you want to know more details). As for the Apartments...Wayne's are more spread out. All too often the apartments in Fort Lee are in high-rise towers (not my preference). However, if you do like urban living, want to be a little closer to the city and Park Ridge, than go for Fort Lee.

As for Nanuet...I do not know. To most people in NJ, NY means NYC.

Write back if you have any questions about Wayne or Fort Lee though.

Nanuet would be the closest and with a very easy commute. I live in Park Ridge, it is only about 5 miles to Nanuet and takes me 10 minutes, tops - I used to commute from here to Nanuet for work.

Don't know what your budget is,, but there are garden apartments in Park Ridge and Montvale. Also, Pearl River NY, which borders Montvale, is only a few minutes from PR, and has apartments availablle, both garden apartments and other (above storefronts, multi-family homes, etc.).

Commuting from Wayne will be trafficky, long, and will cost you a couple bucks a day in tolls (you will take 80 to Parkway). Commuting from Fort Lee will be going up the Palisades, shouldn't be trafficky (most are going the opposite direction to commute to NYC), but it's a good 20 miles or more and will take about 1/2 hour (15-20 minutes up the Palisades Parkway, and 10-15 minutes on side roads to PR).

What other kind of input are you looking for?
