Also, Westchester hosts some of the best school districts in the country (Armonk, Chappaqua - my hometown :-D, Scarsdale, etc.)

I know a lot of people that Live out in the Burbs of Jersey, Either Parsippany, or Montclair, NJ. A bit further out, but the schools are great. Buses go to Port Authority. Unless you actually want to live really close, then forget it. Either way, no matter where you look is going to be costly. Jersey City has turned things around also.

Don't do it. You'll be neighbors with a bunch of Islanders and Devils fans.

Yuppers!!!....although my advise would be to telecommute and stay in Canada. Cost of living in NYC is amongst the highest in the country. Only camparable to certain areas in CA and Hawaii. But if NY is a must, definately stay away from NJ and Staten Island...the smell will get to you

Right and Brookly, Queens or the Bronx are paradise. Go live in Bed Stuy or Fort Greene and tell me its a paradise. What a crap hole, and forget about trying to commute to the financial district -- an hour on the m line and you'll wish you'd never heard of Bed Stuy!

If you are coming from Canada are you and your parents used to having a little breathing room? Or are the houses where you are from right on top of each other? Becuase that's what you will find in many areas closer to Manhattan. If you are looking for enough distance between you and your neighbor, tell your folks to look in Suffolk County. It's about an hour from Manhattan by train depending on what section, and you can get in faster by driving in the HOV if you have a passenger. They will get more bang for thier buck out there though. Especially in a town like say Happauge. Decent schools, and many properties are half acre. Lot's of center hall colonials, but the difference is, the next towns over like Smithtown, and Commack you will pay between $9,000 and $15,000 in taxes for the place like that, when in Happauge you can squeeze in around $5,-6,000. with more house for the same money.

Good luck in your search!...And welcome to the Jungle!

I lived there for the better part of a decade too. 30 minutes train ride to GCT, wonderful area, but "cripplingly" expensive cost of living. Ridiculous enough that it forced me to move away last year to pursue dreams of home ownership elsewhere.

If you're serious about a 5 bedroom home, you will not find one for under 7 figures and your property taxes will probably be equal to the average US resident's annual salary, but, if you got that kind of bank, Westchester is your place.

Montclair, NJ isn't too bad. About 30 minute car ride, 45 minute busride. The town itself also has a good selection of restaurants shops ect.
