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.
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!
Bayonne has a small town feel, but it is minutes from New York City. It has easy and inexpensive transportation options into NYC where entertainment, restaurants, cultural venues, and sports venues abound!
