Bordentown Township Reviews

All Categories
I love living in bordentown. I moved here from the shore, and it is different in every way. You have an adorable little city center with a lot of historic charm, and then there are also areas with a lot of farm land close by. You get the best of both worlds. All of the restaurants in town are amazing, with such friendly people. You have beautiful views with the Delaware river close by, and tons of different transportation to different areas in New Jersey, very convenient. Bordentown has such a community atmosphere, they are constantly having different events in town for people to check out, I never really had that growing up. But is turning into one of my favorite things about this area!
Review Bordentown Township
My town of Bordentown, New Jersey is a close community where people know who you are and we all get together and support each other. One thing that really shows everyone who we are is when we all got together and donated money towards food, clothing, and a hotel room for a homeless man that walks around our area. Everyone saw this man and wanted to help and we provided housing for him that is still good for months ahead. We care about one another and we look out for each other, when someone is in need or suffers a loss we are there for them and provide a shoulder for them to cry on. We never leave someone behind and we are always looking to get better. Bordentown is a great place to grow and learn how to be the best person you can be!
Small town. Very close knit community. Many local activities held for families and kids - 5K, Halloween parade, Cranberry Fest. Excellent school system.
