Where your husband will work in the City will determine your commuting options. Your lifestyle preferences, of course play a large part. We have a very large commuter population from Northern Monmouth County to NYC every day. The ferry service options provide downtown and midtown points. Many of our commuters also use train or express bus service.
What you can expect to pay might range from the 200's to 7 figures. With more input from you, I can narrow that wide range to one which will reflect properties within your preferences.
I moved to NJ from CT, and chose Northern Monmouth County because I wanted to be near the water and have more open space while retaining the ease of NYC access for both work and pleasure. We have the ocean, and rivers, inlets, bays; a wonderful county park system with large parks for hiking, biking, and sports, the 1600 acre Sandy Hook Park, great programs for children and adults, bike lanes for riding, local runs, marathons, many options for riding and stabling horses, and wonderful schools. If you would like a comprehensive relocation package for this area, including maps, transportation options, and community guides, it is yours at no charge upon request.
A partial list of towns within easy commuting distance of the ferry include Middletown, Red Bank, Rumson, Fair Haven, Little Silver, Monmouth Beach, Sea Bright, Highland, Atlantic Highlands, Oceanport and Long Branch. The relocation package includes information for each of these towns and more.
