Default NORTH SHORE CITY????

Hello there!!!

My husband and I are due to arrive in Auckland on 13th September and have earmarked 2 places where we think we would like to live. Albany in North Shore City or Howick in Manuakau City. Does anyone live in either of these areas? Have we made a good choice???? In particular, does anyone do the commute from these areas into the CBD? How long does it take generally?

Any help anyone could give would be most appreciated.

Take care.

If your living in Albany I take it you'll be taking the bus from the park n ride into the city?

I live in Takapuna so get the bus from Akoranga on the bus lane and it takes me about 45mins door to door. Very happy with that. Couple of collegues live in Albany and there's is about an hour door to door.

It does depend on where your work is - if it's South Aucks then your best bet would be Howick commonly known as Chowick for reasons best left to the imagination. I live near Albany - which as poster #2 said has easy access to city via bus - North shore is accessible to most things - good schools etc - However I have never lived in Howick but understand it is a good area - just on other side of Aucks )

Thanks for your comments.

My husband will need a car for his job so is it going to be a nightmare to drive from Albany?

thanks again.
