New York City Commuter Towns Travel Distance

Many people choose to live in the Hudson Valley but have to commute to New York City either daily or occasionally. If that is a deciding factor for you, check out our commute distance tables below to find out how far each town is.

Calculation Method:

For each town/village/hamlet, we look up the address of the town hall or government office. Then we plug it into google maps and check the distance from that address to 1) Penn Station for towns on the West side of the Hudson River 2) Grand Central Station for towns on the East side of the Hudson River.

The distance is based on the route google recommends. The drive time is based on that route, assuming no current traffic. I know google recommends different routes at different times, and the time varies. So please do not take this as the most scientific calculations. 

And for those of you who would like to take public transportation, please check out our Guide for New York City Commute from Westchester, Putnam, and Dutchess County, and the Guide for New York City Commute from Rockland, Orange, and Ulster County.
