Topic Tag: bus
I’m interested in relocating from New Jersey to Newburgh in 2018. I’m a freelancer with most of my ongoing gigs being in New York City. I’m looking to hear from people about the commute and if there are any tips/local tidbits I should be aware of ahead of time.
I know the Beacon train is probably the most popular option, but anyone out there utilize Shortline on a consistent basis? How packed is it at the 6a/7a/8a hour?
Does anyone drive to a park and ride to get to the city? Are there any that are particularly better than others?
Lastly, and only mildly related, are there any bikers out there who commute to public transit hubs via bicycle? How realistic is this in Newburgh and from what neighborhoods? It’s not a deal breaker, but the option would be nice.
Thanks for the insight!
Have a few questions on a potential move:
Best realtors to contact.
Ideal location for someone without a car and needs to be able to walk to commuter bus to NYC or to ferry to Beacon.
General commute time to midtown, taking into consideration winter months, bad weather conditions.
Renovation costs for hopefully a house that needs cosmetic work and plumbing connections and average electrical work.
Supermarkets/food stores within walking distance of ferry or bus.
Cost of renting one bedroom to “test the waters”.
