What should I expect if I were to commute from Brooklyn, NY to Ewing, NJ approximately twice a week? What is the suggested method (car, train, combination, etc)?

It has been decided that my husband and I are moving from California to NYC (Brooklyn) this spring. My job's East coast location is in Ewingville, Ewing, NJ. Unfortunately, due to the nature of his work, living outside of New York is not an option.
GoogleMaps says a commute like this is somewhere around 1.5ish hours, but I suspect that's too short to be true with traffic, and I didn't readily see toll information either. I currently pay a toll in California, and on most days the commute is already over an hour (but not quite 1.5 hours), so I'm mentally prepared/adjusted to commuting 5 days a week.
Don't worry, I do have the option of working from home most, if not all, days (especially in winter), but I will want to go to the office at least once or twice a week most likely. What am I in for?
