If interested in Long island check If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods. When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand... For school information see links below, also consider a visit to the school(s)

In New Jersey, there is a great train service called the Midtown Direct Line. Depending on the community you choose to live in that this train services, you can be in Manhattan in 20 minutes. In some towns, like Montclair, you can walk to the station because this town has so many stops. If you have never looked at Montclair, it is a great town with Zagat rated restaurants, live theatre, art museums, parks,and lots of activities to offer. There's a Farmers Market on weekends and always something to do. The homes are not "cookie cutter"... not developments, like everyone thinks is all that New Jersey has. The schools are based on the magnet school concept.
If you have any other questions about this area of New Jersey, don't hesistate to contact me.
Good luck with your search.

Hello Bill. I can recommend some very good options in Queens but have to know what you really need by way of bedroom, etc. Since you ask about schools, I know there's a child involved. Please feel free to contact me anytime. Thank you.

I am a Licensed Broker in Westchester & Putnam Counties and there are towns here where homes can be purchased at or below 300K. There are three Metro North Train lines (Hudson, Harlem & New Haven) which have very convenient service to Grand Central Station.
