Westchester County would probably be Pelham, Mt. Vernon or Yonkers

Come to Greenwich, CT! Its the first town into CT from NY (via I-95). Fantastic town, schools, homes, and TAXES.

that's tough to answer directly, as there are many ways to interpret closer, by commute time, drive time or miles - depends which is most important to you. you can use to enter your preferences and pull from our database of hundreds of communities within a three hour radius of central park. during our research we discovered that sometimes commute time is quicker than drive time, and vice versa, and a few miles can take a long time if it's on a busy route. hope this helps.

good luck

I live in Babylon, NY. This is southwest Suffolk county. Babylon has a "hub" station that has express LIRR trains to Manhattan, but is still about an hour ride (still probably the fastest train from Suffolk county to Manhattan). So if you plan on commuting to Manhattan from Long Island be sure you take a look at an LIRR map. For Westchester take a look at a Metro North map. Keep in mind there are very nice neighborhoods that are closer in Nassau county.

It sounds like you already know about Westchester, and suffolk county. There is also nassau county. When you say NYC do you mean Manhattan where many people work? NYC is comprised of Manhattan the heart of the business district and 4 other boroughs which are Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island and the Bronx. Depending on what you are looking for they can be options as well. It also depends how long a commute you are willing to make. That will help determine the suburbs. Many also live in NJ as a "suburb" of NY as some areas are just as close. If you like to discuss you can give me a call 516 594-1400 and I can better understand where you are thinking of living and then suggest viable suburbs.

There are lots of great choices to live in Suffolk that are w/in commuting distance to Manhattan. As you know, it's a buyers market and Long Island offers great choices in communities, homes, etc. The two western most Suffolk County towns--Huntington and Babylon (and their respective hamlets and villages)--offer a stunning array of lifestyle choices--all w/in easy reach of great beaches, bays, parks, historic sites, Manhattan, the Hamptons, Fire Island, etc. Communities inlcude: Cold Spring Harbor, Huntington Village, Northport in the North; Farmingdale, Dix Hills, Deer Park in the center; and Amityville Village, Lindenhurst Village and Babylon Village in the South; along with a number of barrier island beach communities.

Feel free to check out the community profiles and real estate listings on our website: -- and call me with any further questions.

It's a great time to buy Long Island!

Suffok County is pretty far from NYC. Check out towns in Nassau County such as Glen Clove, and Manhasset. In Suffolk County check out Scarsdale, Rye, and MT. Vernon. Connecticut has a nice commute to the city from Greenwich and Stamford. Don't exclude New Jersey! You have Princeton, Summit, Alpine, Millburn, and Short Hills all great commuter towns. Check out and for rail maps for the areas mentioned above.
