A lot of New Yorkers also look towards Pennsylvania due to exactly what you are looking for and dealing with. A lot of good deals can be had there and they aren't all that far. Some counties also have a free website research option where you can do comps of what the houses sell for and when they were built, etc...
I really don't see how PA is 1-1.5 hours away from NYC.
trick to commuting from PA is sleeping on the express bus that leaves at 4am
I have enough back problems to add to them by sleeping on a bus. In general I was never able to sleep in a moving vehicle, bus, train, plain, car, doesn't matter, just can't sleep like that.
