Wondering if there are any towns/cities in PA that are relatively close to NYC, say no more than an 1 or 2 by car/train? Considering a relocation but do not want to pay NYC (or nearby) prices. As an example, I've found lofts in Phoenixville, PA that seem decent... wondering how practical that is really, and what life in that kind of town in PA is like... Thanks!

Phoenixville seems a bit far. I think it takes about an hour and a half to 2 hours by train from the Trenton train station, so I'd check out Bucks County along the river. Yardley, Morrisville, Lower Makefield, etc.

Not a Recommendation but XXXX Wilde Ave Drexel Hill PA 19026 clocks out at 2hrs 2 minutes for 110 miles per mapquest. A friend of mine did that commute while with the Marshalls Office but did it by train from I believe either Philadelphia or Marcus Hook Philly when she chose to take the subway to 30th Street Station and Marcus Hook when she wanted to park and ride. I think Delaware County provides a hub of travel and easy connection though there is most certainly some point of PA that lies closer to NY.

The Lehigh Valley area (Easton, Bethlehem, Allentown) is pretty close to NY but no rail service.
