Central Howell is an excellent place to be, as you have route 9 which connects to 195 which leads to
the Parkway North. My husband commuted to Staten Island from howell for 38 years, He worked for Con Edison. The commute took him 1 hour. The commute to Brooklyn would take you about 1 hour 20 minutes depending on the time of day..
Good luck to you...
If you are looking for a nice home, we are selling ours without a real estate. It is a four bedroom 2.5 bath home with a basement. The kitchen has just been done with cherry cabinettes granite counters and has a marble floor. The roof, air, heating system, windows, have all been replaced with in the past few years.
We are located at 11 Remsen Drive in Howell, and are selling the home because it is just too big for us, as the children have all moved on.
Good luck to you
