Franklin Township is a very good place to live because there are many different people that you could meet and there are many opportunities in it. The schools have some very good things to offer with some good after school activities that you could attend. Sometimes they would take things out of hand and do some things that wouldn't make sense but for the most part Franklin is a very productive environment.

Flemington, in general, is a very safe and friendly town. It has many large and small business in the area which allows everyone the chance to grow and prosper. The schools are "Blue Ribbon" quality, which means that the education is top-notch. Also, there is a lot of activities available that anyone of any age can enjoy.
Most jobs around here are at the grocery and department stores for young adults in high school at minimum wage. There are plenty of diner jobs, not sure about qualified jobs.
