My wife and I are thinking about life outside of Manhattan. Weighing our options. Wondering if any of you have recommendations on family-friendly neighborhoods that are a stone’s throw from Manhattan.

Of course we want more space, maybe even a house and yard, but our main reservation is the commute. I guess our limit is under 45 min to midtown via public transportation.

We have a toddler, a bun in the oven, and 2 dogs. Our careers brought both my wife and I to NYC (we’re both freelancers)…so we have no family nearby and we don’t know much about what’s outside of Manhattan.

We’d appreciate any thoughts or recommendations you may have. Thank you.
