My grandparents moved to Livingston when they first had my mother. She had always loved the atmosphere of this unified town. After college, she decided to move back and raise me and my sister here. I was born and raised in Livingston and I wouldn't have it any other way. There is always something to do; whether it be walking into the Town Center with friends, going to the mall, or attending the various events held in town. Although I moved away to attend college, I will always find Livingston to be my home. I am proud of where I grew up and plan to move back to raise my children there as well!

Livingston is a wonderful community in which to live and work. It is a suburban community with a worldly vibe. The town center is pedestrian friendly with many shops and eateries. It is an awesome ace to grab a bite with friends after work, or spend a leisurely afternoon browsing the great stores. In terms of real estate, Livingston has the perfect range of homes from small capes for the first time buyer to grand estates. There are new town homes being built for those who prefer a low maintenance lifestyle. In addition to these many amenities, Livingston boasts one of the best school systems in the state!
It's a safe, clean neighborhood with a convenient location. Livingston has easy access to the highway and route 10, where there is endless options for food, shopping, and entertainment. Livingston is also located near two malls, Livingston and Short Hills. Their food options are great, although you'll find a pizzeria on every turn. It's also a great place for nails or hair, although they can be on the pricey side. Overall, very good experience. The only downside is the attitude that some people may have here.
