Hamilton is expensive, not for those who are trying. I live in Hamilton, and I hate that that there is no equal opportunity of young kids. Childcare is extremely expensive for those who are not financially stable. Its better to stay in areas like Trenton when you have young kids for better assistance.

I used to live in Trenton, NJ and ever since I moved to Hamilton, NJ my life has gotten better in every way. There's less stress because there's less crime and the people here are friendly. Almost every neighbor has a dog(as I do) and even our dogs get along! Hamilton is a quiet, clean, peaceful area and I'm proud to say I live here.
Hamilton Township is my hometown. I've lived here for the majority of my life and enjoyed living here. I currently moved back to Hamilton after a few years and it brings back childhood memories. I always thought Hamilton Township was a very boring but nice town. It has a nice comfort quality to it. It's in a perfect location, in my opinion. It's located in central New Jersey, which is only minutes away from bordering towns like Princeton, Lawrenceville, and Trenton. Overall, I would recommend Hamilton Township to everyone especially families. It's a safe and community-driven town.
