A Move in the Making
Living in the suburbs of Montclair, NJ was not a decision I made willingly. It was a sacrifice because I wanted my kids to have an excellent public school education. My daily commute into NYC took an 1.5 hours, and sometimes longer, depending on the delays of New Jersey Transit. To make my commute shorter and get back to the city life that resides in my bones, I made plans to move back to NYC after my youngest graduated from high school.
My plans were sidetracked because I wasn't ready to purchase a home and the rent in NYC was astronomical. I then had to figure out how to get out of the suburbs and move as close to NYC as possible.
