Northeast queens, nyc is a short 30 minute commute to penn statation/manhattan via LIRR. the communities of bayside, littlte neck, and douglaston offer the best of suburbia yet close to the Big Apple. school district #26 are part of these communities and boasts year after year the highest rated public schools in all of nyc.

Depending on your budget you have many options, in Brooklyn, Queens, Nassau County, etc. Ask people you may know about areas of interest; depending on your employment position--see if relocation benefits are offered with respect to housing, etc. Or consider working with an agent of your ow who can help you with your search. Check out for available area properties in the Queens, Nassau, Suffolk County area.

Hi Donald!

Here's one option you may consider -

I work in a NYC suburb located in NJ - approximately 17 miles from the city.
Several towns in my area offer the "Mid Town Direct" train right into Penn Station - the commute can average 30-45 min, depending on your stop.

Much will depend on your price range.

I recently rented an elegant 4 BR, 3.5 bth home in Short HIlls, a very high end, desirable town with wonderful schools, shopping, restaurants and boutiques for $6000 (it was walking distance to the train) - there are other homes starting in the $4000 range. There might be some options in neighboring towns starting in the $3500 range.

Towns in my area to consider include (here's a short list):
in addition to Millburn/Short Hills - Summit, Livingston, Madison, Chatham, Montclair, & Morristown, just to mention a few.

By comparison, Manhattan would cost in the $3000- 4000+ range just for a 2 BR/2bth apartment in a doorman building.

Best wishes.......plesse let me know if you'd like to explore the possibilities in my area!
Good luck with your move.
