Looking for more rural area commutable to Midtown Manhattan
I currently live in Springfield, NJ and my husband commutes about 50 minutes to the city by bus. We are looking for an area that is more rural, natural, farmland, larger properties, more space between houses, etc.
We are willing to add another 30 minutes to his commute (bus or train) in exchange for more nature. Can anyone recommend some areas to research?
Ideally we'd like to be within a 30 minute drive of west orange as well, since our kids go to school there.
Thanks in advance.
