Closest train would be Ridgewood I know since I live in Paramus. Paramus is a great town and would love to help you find a great deal in the area. Go to my web site to search all available properties in the area including Bank Owned REO, Short Sale, etc. http://www.NorthJerseyHouse.com
Paramus doesnt have a train the nearest are River Edge, hackensack and Fairlawn. The best option into midtown from paramus is bus which is approx 35-45min commute. If you are interest in paramus you can visit my site http://www.SellwithMelNJ.com to view all the homes for sale in paramus along with all the bergen county FORECLOSURES.
Paramus does not have their own train station. Paramus is a large town. depending on what area you purchase you would have different options of which train station in other towns you could use. the commute to Penn Station is approx. 40 minutes. the commute to Port Authority is about 45-50 minutes, by bus, again depending on where you get the bus in Paramus.
Probably takes about 50 minutes travel time.
I can help you out with information from my area - Essex County. The mid town direct train (from NY Penn Station) makes stops in South Orange (my son often uses that stop), Maplewood, Millburn and Short Hills. From S. Orange it is approximately 30 minutes. There are other stops in towns such as Summit, Montcliar and Morristown ( which is further west , in Morris county).

Hope this helps!
