Jersey City, yo. Before it gets fully gentrified.

It’s not close, but many people tend to live in central jersey/southern north jersey because it’s cheaper, although the commute to NY can be an hour and 30 min to 45 min.

Jersey City is affordable compared to Manhattan, but expensive compared to Arizona, and it’s a relatively high crime area. Violent crime is over twice the national average.
Still, there aren’t a lot of options in NY if you don’t have a trust fund or lottery winnings.
