What are good towns to live in between Hackettstown and NYC?

Asked by Scott Kushner, Hackettstown, NJ Sat Jul 26, 2008

My bride and I are looking to move from Long Island. We currently rent a 1 BR apartment ($1300/mo util), and would be interested in the same or possibly purchasing a condo or home if we could keep the payments around the same. I need to be able to commute to Hackettstown (driving is fine) and she needs to commute to Manhattan (via public transit). I'm thinking some place around Montclair or the Oranges to give us reasonable commute times, but I'm not sure what the neighborhoods and home values are like around there.

Also, we don't know much about foreclosed homes, but I'd like to know if that would be a good option for us as well.

Thank you.
