Top 5 Best Value Neighborhoods If Commuting


If you are like the average budget conscious professional in New York, you probably don't want to spend your entire life on the subway, and you probably don't want to spend an arm and a leg on your apartment. Most professionals in New York commute to the two central office hubs of the city, Midtown and the Financial District.
