Wonderful town and village - noted as having "restaurant row" in NY Times magazine, the village offers many restaurants, adorable ice cream shop, Starbucks and one of the best bakeries around - The Gingered Peach. Lawrence has exceptional elementary schools - where many of us were embraced by a warm and caring community. Great for our family with parks, bike trails, Terhune Farms, and the convience of being close to so much. I commuted years to NYC and the Hamilton Train center was just 12 minutes away. A 10 -20 minute drive can land you in so many other neighboring towns - Princeton, Pennington, Lambertville, even Bucks County which allows for a lot of fun and exploring. Getting to Philadelphia and NYC is convenient but many of us left the cities and found amazing job opportunities in Lawrence. Fortune 500 companies have their headquarters nearby. Lawrence has so much to offer while offering lower taxes than neighboring towns. Truly a special place to live and to raise a family.

The town of Lawrenceville, New Jersey was and has been a great place for youths to be nurtured. The educational system, both public and private, are exceptional. There are always sports for youths and young adults to get involved in, public park lands are well maintained, and the crime rate is low. The community of the town has always brought youths and adults together in a manner that celebrates the tranquility of several microcosms within the area. The diversity of citizens coexist harmoniously wherein many cultures provide flavors of several heritages. One thing that should change, however, for the town of Lawrenceville is social shattering of youths brought on by internet-accessing devices. Nowadays, the once bustling youth groups which would enjoy the company of each other playing and touring outdoors have now found themselves isolated among their rooms communicating artificially with each other. Additionally, the town has not become a hot spot for young professionals.
I love Lawrenceville! It is extremely diverse, lots of wonderful job opportunities and many great places to eat and have fun.
