IF YOU ARE DRIVING INTO THE CITY, THE COMMUTE CAN TAKE ANYWHERE FROM 1/2 HOUR TO AN HOUR--DEPENDING ON THE TIME OF DAY. USING PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION, IT WOULD TAKE ABOUT AS LONG. THE BIGGEST HURDLE IS, OF COURSE, THE GWB. NEW MILFORD HAS EXCELLENT BUS AND TRAIN SERVICE INTO NYC. IF YOU NEED MORE INFORMATION, CALL ME AT 201-519-7980 OR EMAIL ME: JimSellsBergenCounty@Gmail.com. I NOT ONLY SELL REAL ESTATE, I ALSO LIVE IN NEW MILFORD!... more
There are many options NJ Transit has buses that run on Teaneck Rd both local & Express and one that runs on Queen and Rd to Port Authority in Midtown. Check www.njtransit.com.
Teaneck is a bedroom community to New York as it many of the towns that border it.

I am a longtime resident of Teaneck as well as a 30-year realtor. Teaneck has a number of options, depending on where you live and what part of Manhatten you need to get to. The best way is using the NJ Transit Bus system (www.njtransit.com) for the bus options along various busy streets. For instance, #167 and #168 operate on Queen Anne Road, #168 operates also on Teaneck Road, etc. There are also bus lines on Cedar Lane, River Road, West Englewood Avenue, DeGraw Avenue and several others along Route 4 going into the GW Bridge bus station in upper Manhatten.
If you are going to lower Manhatten in the Wall St Area, you can either take the bus into midtown (Port Authority bus station) and take the subway downtown, or you can go over to Hackensack and take the NJ Transit train (Pascack Valley line on the same website) to Hoboken to switch to the PATH train to NYC.

I know this may be late and you figured it out already, but in case you're still seeking advice for the best route in...
From the Soldier Hill area of Paramus, the easiest way is to walk .5 to .75 miles south to Oradell Ave and take the 165P to 42nd St. Port Authority bus station. You can also drive to the Garden State Parkway Exit 165 Park and Ride (1-2 miles depending where you are exactly) and take NJ Transit 165P (Coincidence that the exit number matches the bus route).
Another route is to take the 164RF that is ON Soldier Hill Road, but that only runs every 30 minutes during rush hour in each direction.
Here's a schedule of the stops:
#17 is the Soldier Hill Road stop that 165RF uses.
#13 is the GSP Park and Ride stop that 165P uses.
Note: 165RF and 165P DO NOT stop at the same places in Paramus.
I would avoid the trains as parking is very difficult to obtain and there is a mandatory transfer with a ~1/2 mile walk to the connecting platform for the next train into the city.... more
Well, although this question is 2 months old..........just to join in - if you're not locked into Tenafly already - you might want to consider some of the commuter "train" towns in NJ ( for example - Millburn/Short Hills, Maplewood, Montclair, Chatham, etc - or, even W. Orange and Livingston which offer shuttle services to the train) - they offer the MidTown Direct train into Penn Station - a much shorter commute, ranging anywhere from 30-50 min, depending on the departure station.
I will break down all means of public transportation into New York City, as I am a native resident of Hasbrouck Heights, currently residing in Lodi, and commute into Manhattan daily during the summer months, as I am a dually licensed sales representative. If your planned purchase if within walking distance to Williams Avenue, then you are in luck, as the 161 stops at the intersection of Terrace Avenue and Williams daily, until about 8 a.m. I would like to notate when commuting back via Port Authority, be sure to board the 161 via Passaic, as this is the only bus that will travel the same route, and last departures are generally 7 p.m. If your schedule is beyond these hours, or you are simply not within walking distance to Williams Avenue, there is also the 163, which has multiple stops along the Boulevard (West of Terrace Avenue), and has express routes until about 9 a.m. (do not be fooled however, express routes are still about an hour in). Lastly, you have the train which you can either depart from Moonachie, Teterboro, and Rutherford. Again, dependent upon where your purchase is on Terrace Avenue (i.e. closer to Wood Ridge, or closer to Hackensack) will determine which station suits your needs. The train is slightly more expensive, however, much quicker (30 minutes). You have options as well; you can take it straight to Hoboken, and take the Path in if you work downtown (i.e. FiDi, West Village, Chelsea) or you can transfer at the Secaucus stop which will leave you Midtown at Penn Station. Best of Luck, and I hope I was through. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me, as I have stated, I am in and out the Manhattan daily, as one of my offices is located in Chelsea.... more
You first might want to check with New Jersey Transit to get the train schedule to see what times it comes by and whether it actually makes stops late at night. My understanding is that it is a commuter train. Again, New Jersey Transit is your best unbiased source for information regarding train schedules. and yes you should see (hear!) for yourself..everyone does have different hearing!
If i can be of any further help I'm an 18 yr local realtor.
