Loved living in Bradley Gardens for 20 years, recently retired and moved to North Carolina. Raised kids here, great safe place to live the dream. Convenient to everything and lots of alternate road routes should Rt 202 have a traffic issue. It’s kind of a boring place since nothing every really happens, but that’s suburban life in most towns. School system is great, our 3 kids are successful, making a good living and starting their own families.

Very similar to the part of Bridgewater on the north side of Rt 22 - like Meadows or Country Club Road. Quiet suburban neighborhood with plenty of sidewalks for nice strolls. Lots of families with younger kids and teens. Very convenient access to Raritan for train service and Wegmans and Home Depot are a 5 minute drive. Never felt unsafe being here - nothing every happens other than maybe teens setting off fireworks in a July...lol
As long as you have a car, you don't need to go very far to sustain a lifestyle. Multiple supermarkets are within the municipality borders. Projects such as the Route 22 expansion show that the government is interested in improving public services. Within the surrounding towns, there are both homes and apartments. The air is clean, and there is still plenty of greenery. New York City is an hour-long drive away although you could also take NJ Transit, which has a few stations on the Raritan Valley line nearby.
