I have lived in Bridgewater New Jersey all my life. I think it is an amazing town for kids to grow up in. The school districts are amazing. There are many shopping centers as well as gyms and many options for employment!
Review Bridgewater Township
There are a couple of sections of Bridgewater; Finderne and Bradley Gardens. I live in the Bradley Gardens area and it is a quiet neighborhood. It is very rare if any crimes occur in this area, I rarely see cops driving around. Conveniently located ten minutes from the Bridgewater Commons mall, the high school, Raritan Valley Community college.. access to major highways are easy to get to.
A lot of young people complain about living in Bridgewater, but it's clean, it's safe, there are major highways around, so it's not difficult to get places, it's near enough to New York City to commute, and near enough to the shore to make a day trip. The school is great, too, with lots of opportunities for extracurriculars. There are several club teams for all sorts of sports as well.
