Weehawken if you’re good with ferry/bus


You had me until under 400k

Good luck finding that within an hour of NYC


Journal Square is the place to be


How close to Manhattan? Journal Square is very close but not good. Try Short Hills, Chatham, West Orange, etc


Maybeee Bayonne
Honestly as a native all the areas are trash
You’re better off venturing out a bit more


Go to Long island for that


OW 1 - Preferably an hour or less commute to Manhattan

And under 400k for a 2 br

Haha sorry EY 2. Thats the max I can afford

You can probably find a place in Woodbridge for that amount
Maybe exactly 1 hour to alittle north of 1hour from Manhattan
But yea..

Go to Princeton,NJ

I was gonna say Princeton area too, or even New Brunswick. There’s an express train to the city from Princeton a little less than an hour

Recruiters, can you please give us freelancers the avg range for jr, mid level, and sr level day rates in your city?
My made-up example:
New York
Jr $500-700
Mid $700-$900
Sr $900-$1500

Thank you.


Hello! I just got promoted and I want to treat myself to a bag. I’m mostly looking for a classic small crossbody bag I can carry to brunches/date nights. I already have a Louis Vuitton One Handle Bag and the YSL Monogramme Chain Wallet so I’m looking for something different. Ideally I’d like the suggested bag to hold its resale value/appreciate over time! TIA!! Budget <5K!
