The diversity is very good and there are many opportunities for the future. This is a family town as despite being close to Trenton, it is very safe, especially on the North side. The public schools are also very safe, diverse, and inclusive, making it a good environment for an education. Also, the town is one hour from Philadelphia, and one from New York City which are great cities to travel to. Lawrenceville offers many events throughout the year such as several free parades, festivals, and free concerts.
