Default Best towns to live outside of Newark?

A new hire that was able to get a vacancy bid to Newark. Can anyone recommend a family friendly town to live in outside of Newark that is about an hour away or so. I have an 8 year old daughter so need a good school district. Looking to live there for a year while I sit reserve. Thanks.

Cheapest will be in PA Lehigh Valley. Essex county try Verona, Glenn Ridge, upper Montclair. Going south, you probably don't want to stop until Middlesex County.

Frats,

And welcome aboard

Look at Warwick Ny. Very good schools. About an 1:20 to the parking lot.

Reserve won't last long and vacancy bids are frequent. Don't think you "need" to move there. Pick the domicile you want and sit it out for a year or so to see if you can hold it. Commuting does suck, but living where you want is worth it.

Things are great now, but historically it won't last. In this cyclical industry I don't think planning your life a year out based on the current trend is necessarily prudent. We've always hired right up to furlough.

Thank you for the advice and please keep it coming. We are currently nomads/homeless and we are keeping everything in storage for at least a year. We are looking to be around NYC not just because it will be a little easier for this job, but also because my daughter has some opportunities in NYC that we want to take advantage of. Once I get settled in this job and depending what happens with my daughter we will probably be moving down the east coast.
Thanks again for the advice.

I know a lot of people that live in Cranford and love it. Train to city is available. Not as affordable as PA, but sounds like you aren't thinking of buying. I wouldn't go to PA unless u are thinking longer term.

I don't think you can "plan" your life at all in this industry, one year or ten years. Exactly why I wouldn't move based on my domicile. Watching the Miami and Seattle guys is enough for me.
