Is it worth working in NYC living in Philly?

Is my paycheck going to suck if I do this? 

Update:

I'm worried about getting doubled taxed and if i'll feel the wrath.

    Your paycheck would not suffer but you have to consider the expense of commuting in both time and money. Do you live near the 30th St. Station and work near Grand Central?

      Penn Station would be better.

    There's a lot of employees that live in one state and work in another. Like me. You'll get use to it and enjoy the tax exempt status.

    I don't know why anyone would get within ten miles of either city.

    That's 3 hours round trip on Amtrak each day, for maybe $1k per month of commuting. Regular Amtrak, not the Acela.

    Is it worth that?

    Damn enormous drive. You gotta figure it out. Remember to factor in time and exacerbation.

    I don't know about that but here we have people who bought homes that far away - that far in travel time, not miles. For the cheaper prices. They drive (no train) 3-4 hours each way, every day. Leave at 3am, get home at 10pm. They have no lives, they are the zombie people.

    No, but you will spend a good deal of your life commuting.

    Damn big commute.  You gotta do the math. Don't forget to factor in time and aggravation.

    You would have to get a room in NYC. It's 120 hard miles to Philadelphia.
