(But a 45 minute commute may wear thin rather quickly!)

Back in the good old days I lived in New Jersey. I worked for the Berlitz School of Languages and at one time was promoted to a directorship and assigned to their school in Forest Hills, Queens.
This involved driving from Irvington, NJ to Maplewood and catching the train to Hoboken where I transferred to a train to take me to NY's Battery. From there it was the subway, the E and F trains. The trip took two hours and was repeated when I closed up the school in the evening.
That's four hours spent daily getting to and from work.
I loved the job, though.

Regards,
Grumpy
