My husband and I live in NYC with our child but it is time to move to the suburbs for space, etc. We are looking for a nice town in NY or NJ with and easy commute to Manhattan. We want an area with good schools that is middle-upper class but isn't so snobby that you feel like an outcast if you aren't driving a Mercedes (or towns where children get these cars automatically when they turn 16). Please let me know of suggestions you have!

It depends upon where you work in Manhattan...the west side you should consider NJ...the east side...NY...the only problem with either is the taxes...you could look into Long Island but most working people are looking to move off the island due to the taxes...traffic...and collapsing economy...and I am sure you have heard of the Long Island Expressway...aka...the Long Island Parking Lot...even worse on holiday's...
In Westchester you have numerous towns you could look into...depending upon how long you wish to commute...I would also look into commuter parking which I have been told can be $100 a month or more...plus of course the price of the car...but before I decide anything...I would look into the schools for any book on relocating will tell you the most important rules of real estate are LOCATION - LOCATION - LOCATION.....and one of the most important are the schools...
