School fees I assume are to keep them on a UK curriculum at an international school, I had an employee in Boston and his kids went to the same school at TB’s children.
Yes, any additional payments are grossed up (most stuff is paid for directly by the company i.e. school is sending the bills to them). And yes, 16 year old son so he'll be at the British school, he couldn't just go to a local school without huge disruption to his education. No idea who TB is?

Don’t guess; ask. I did, before Covid hit.

I may be a bit late to the party, here!

Maybe consider central NJ as a good location. There are some very nice small towns, with good school districts, that are easily commutable into NYC/Penn Station. Central NJ is a great place to live (I live here and raised two children in the Garden State!) My husband commuted into Wall St. for years. Easy commute.

Maplewood, Metuchen, Westfield, East Brunswick, Cranford, Edison are some places you could consider. All have a good mix of single family homes and garden apartments.

And, I'm originally from Yorkshire!

Hi there - Also late to the party but yes, in terms of commuting to work in NYC, knowing whether he'll be near Grand Central Terminal or Penn Station will help you narrow down a place to live in order to give him (and traveling to the city in general) an easier commute. Penn Station is generally better for Long Island and some of the New Jersey towns. Grand Central Station is generally better for towns in Westchester County and Connecticut. There are some really nice towns along the express train lines in Westchester that allow for commuters to walk to the station, which means no need to drive and park. Several of those towns have good schools as well.
