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!
