If you are referring to Hartford, Conn., yes you will need a car. There are public buses but it does not go everywhere and it does not run 24/7. If you can't bring a car with you, try visiting some car dealerships and ask if you can lease a car for 9 months instead of their standard 1 - 3 year lease. This will be much cheaper than going thru a car rental company. In New York City, public transportation is excellent but outside of the NYC region, it's not - you need a car. ... more

Virtually impossible. Summit, being on the Mid-town Direct line is one of the worst locations to obtain parking, any day of the week, unless you're commuting in the middle of the night. I know, I live there. ... more

Hello Valerie, there is public bus transit in operations throughout the beach cities and the fare is $1.25 and 50cents transfer fee. http://www.lbtransit.com/Services/

There are various public transportation systems that you will have to google and study the routes to get to the destinations you mention. Maybe you could call and get some direct information to start with. Good luck.

I'm a life long resident of the New York City area and familiar with New Jersey. I need to explain some facts because some of the information you wrote is from lack of knowledge.

You need to understand that the majority of workers do take the train into New York City (Manhattan) because traffic is a nightmare. If driving during rush hours, you will be sitting in traffic congestion for up to 1 hour - seriously. I listen to the traffic reports on the news and there are traffic delays every single day. The train into Manhattan is much faster.

As for quiet country roads - there are none along the Hudson River towns. You need to live further west, north or south from the Hudson River. There are plenty of parks where you can ride your bike.

Before falling in love with a town, you need to prepare yourself for sticker shock. Housing is expensive and so are property taxes. Please factor in property taxes in your budget because it will feel like you need to spend less on a house because of the property taxes. The property taxes pay for the excellent schools. Also research income taxes as your paycheck will be less because of income taxes.
