Need some assistance. I am considering taking a job in Princeton NJ. However frequent travel will require access to an airport hub either Philly or Newark. Ideally someplace with train access to airports. Have lived in high cost of living areas before, Boston, LA.

Would be a condo deal, I'm mid 40's, no kids, schools not concerned. Heard horror stories about NJ auto insurance, and taxes. Philly wage tax isn't the greatest either.

Any suggestions welcome.

Thank you

Try Langhorne or Yardley in PA if you want to get cheaper prices and save on taxes. Its about a 15 min drive from Trenton where theres the train that can take you to Philly, NYC, or Newark. And its only about 25-30 min from Princeton. Easy access to 95, plenty of condos and townhomes. You are going to be a good deal closer to Philly airport but once you get further up towards Newark (North/south brunswick) or if in your budget Princeton or Lawrence area, you will find that it gets pretty dense and a lot more expensive. If you fly a lot out of Newark look a little further north but if not PA is the best bet.

Default WOuld you live in PA or NJ

Zenguy,

Thank you for the info. I looked it up, could take Amtrak to the Newark airport. Princeton commute is doable. Easiest, least painful way to get to PHL airport though? Drive looks icky. THoughts? Thanks so much for your help. Much appreciated.

You can take the SEPTA R7 train into Center City Philly and switch over to the R1 which takes you right to the airport, stopping at all of the terminals.
