I imagine by now you have arrived from Australia to Pearl River and have found a quality apartment there. Pearl River is a great place to live and depending on where you are, it is, indeed within easy walking distance to restaurants and shops. The commute to NYC is perfect. The NJ Transit has a stop right in the heart of Pearl River and from there you go to either Secaucus or Hoboken, and then take the PATH to NYC. You can go downtown to the Financial district or uptown to 34th Street and 7th Avenue. Commuting is also possible by bus and by car. The bus takes you into the NYC Port Authority building on 41st Street and 8th Avenue. Depending on when you leave to go to NYC by car and where you are going in NYC it can be anywhere from 30 minutes and up to get there. The recommended site for finding out about schools in the US is www.greatschools.org. Realtors are not permitted to give opinions about schools but many people I know have relied on this site and been satisfied with it. Please contact me at 914-588-2365 if you are not situated yet in Pearl River, and I will be glad to help you. Of course, I hope you have found an apartment and gotten furniture by now.
