One of the most convenient towns for commuters to Philadelphia and NYC. Hamilton train station is 15 mins away and NJ Transit can get you to NYC in 65 mins. NJ Turnpike/I-95, I-195, I-295, Route 206, Route 130 and Route 29 are just a few minutes away. Town Center has beautiful, affordable single-family homes with shops coming soon. K-6 school is in the neighborhood and it is on the upswing. High School is improving curriculum and kids are getting into top-tier schools! Bordentown with some great restaurants is up the road and Hamilton Marketplace is 10 mins away with plenty of retail shopping.

I like the atmosphere and location of Chesterfield Township the most. It is a very peaceful community, and it may seem like not much is going on in this area, but it is very close to several major cities, such as Trenton, Philadelphia, and New York City. Chesterfield's location allows people to spend a day in a bustling city, but return to a pleasant and safe town. However, I would change the amount of commercial shopping centers in Chesterfield, as there are few shops in the town, and most people have to go into neighboring towns to buy items in stores. I would also want more public transportation, such as a bus stop, so that people wouldn't have to drive so far to take a bus. Finally, I would like to see more public parks or recreation centers in Chesterfield so that recreation can become more prominent in the area. Overall, Chesterfield is a great town in because of the peaceful atmosphere and location to major cities in the U.S.
In my opinion, the best thing about the town of Chesterfield is that it is a friendly and close-knit town which is perfect for families. Additionally, the environment is great, with there being an abundance of nature and trees along with clean and fresh air. However, Chesterfield Elementary School, the elementary school in the town attended by most of the children in the town is very poorly funded.
