Bayonne Reviews

66 reviews
All Categories
This town is great to raise children. The public schools are very good! It is a small town not to far from NYC, but because it is so small everyone knows each other and the police are on top of everything that happens within the city. My children are very happy there and I would definitely purchase a home within the next 5 years.
Review Bayonne
I have lived in Bayonne for about 20 years now. It's a quiet little town located very close to NYC. Very convenient for commuters. That fact that is so close to NYC, makes Bayonne a nice place to live however Bayonne needs to invest more on education. With would be great to have some nice places to shop to as well. Bayonne lacks of nice coffee shops and gourmet restaurants. It has a beautiful waterfront that apparently, it's going to be redesigned. Bayonne also has a interesting history and beautiful library.
It was excellent! Neighbors are friendly but you still have to watch out for sneaky and nosy neighbors. Overall the parks, streets, library and local bars are awesome!
