Hello Ann, Hope all is well. Just recently(30 days) sold a home to a couple who are both commuting to Manhattan. Train station will take you into Hoboken in about 40 minutes and from their you take the Tube into Manhattan. Should take roughly an hours time. If you have not already purchased a home, and need help with all the available listings, please get in touch with me, and I will send you ANY listings that pertain to your criteria. I am an Accredited Buyers Representative(ABR) as well. Look forward to hearing from you. Regards Allan

Hi Lost,

Welcome to Rockland. Probably the best way to commute into downtown New York is via the train into Hoboken and either the PATH train or th e ferry over into Manhattan. The train runs through Pearl River, Nanuet and ends in Spring Valley, so you would have to drive to one of those towns to park your car. The New Jersey Port Jervis line stops in Suffern. The round trip takes 1.5 to 2 hours depending on traffic and the train schedules. There are also Express Busses that run from Rockland into the Port Authority Bus station. From there you can get any number of trains to take you downtown. I used to take an Express Bus from Montvale NJ but it goes as far north as Mount Ivy. Good luck

Even though I am living in FL now, I lived in Bergen County, NJ and I remember a nightmare of GW bridge. Closest city is Fort Lee, has a lot of condos, and upscale communities such as Engelwood Cliffs. Rental there would be expensive but closer then that you could not find.
Answering your first question is extremely difficult because everywhere around Manhattan traffic is very dense. I would say you could spend around 30 minutes to hour 15 minutes for your commute.
