Well it kind of depends on where in NJ, if you are in Southern NJ, you can take buses, which very few ever do, so you probably will be waiting a long time for a bus to arrive, and it would be cold some of those days, so I say you need a car in NJ. Now in NY, you don't need a car.

I'm not from NJ, so I can't answer any details, but NJ is a really big place. It varies a lot. Where are you going to be working? In NYC? or somewhere in NJ itself?

There is very good public transportation into/out of NYC from large parts of NJ. But some of the trips are long (in time and miles) and not cheap.

The cost of living in the areas where folks commute to "the city" (aka NYC) are expensive, even for folks used to US costs.

Contrary to a lot of American's view, NJ has some very nice places. most folks just see NJ from I95, and its nothing but chemical plants and oil refineries, which leave a lot to be desired.

Southern NJ is very nice and has lots of seaside communities. At the top of NJ are places that feel like upstate NY.

Its a big place.
