Time of day for your commute will dictate precise driving time. Remember that many people have moved here from New Jersey and New York and commute daily and are fine with it. You will need to take that drive yourself to discover whether you think it will work for you. Everyone is different.

Have home in Stroudsburg and commuted to Summit for 1 1/2 years. Used to leave at 5AM and arrive in Summit at 6AM Have made the same trip recently and around 8-9 AM. With the economy it looks like traffic is less and trip takes 1 1/4 hours or so. Trip home is a different story unless you can leave Summit by 3:30.

By the way we are relocating to Florida full time and 3200 sq foot home (+ 800 unfinished) on 1 1/4 acres and inground pool will be on market after 1/1/13

Any other info, email me at dvmerklin@yahoo.com

Dear Frances,

Depending on the time your traveling, Rush hour can add up to an 45 minutes on to your commute. I would say it would take you 1 1/2 hours without traffic. Best way to gauge the time is to stay at a local hotel near Stroudsburg for a few days during the week and go to your office when you would normally travel to get a feel for the commute. My husband actually commutes to Englewood Cliffs, NJ everyday and although it's 90 miles from our home he's happy with a 1 1/2 hour drive although it can vary. Hope this helps.

If you would like more information please feel free to contact me. Good luck and best wishes in your search.

All the best,
