A lot of diversity which you don't typically see in most other NJ cities. I love it here and as does my family, if it weren't for the pretty high real estate market, i wouldn't see myself moving from here.

While the town had an okay feel, if you’re not Asian Indian you feel like an outsider. Also, the neighborhood has been going down in quality as more crime (drugs, burglary, and theft) has been going on. Glad I moved from there.
American town in the NE. Quaint and diverse. Good place for young family and
Urban professionals. NJ is experiencing growth and this town is no exception. Great restaurants and shopping. Hometown feeling.
