It is a decent town in Central Jersey with good access to New York City. Nearby towns are easily accessible with nice housing around. It is a average town in a great location. There is small neighborhoods here if that is your thing with bikeable store access. It is just a average town with average people. Nothing really special about it. WIth also nice food location available within minutes of driving with Five Guys and Chipotle for example. It is certainly not for those who wants to have big neighborhoods, as plenty are small and are just driveways. It's just a small nice town.

North Brunswick is a very safe, clean area. I’ve lived in North Brunswick for 17 years, the schools are great and are at close distance. This area has a lot of restaurants, and many family friendly event throughout the year. North Brunswick has many different malls to choose from,big stores like Costco and sams club, night life is pretty simple, public transportation available at convienent locations through the town, and the best part is that it is a quite area!
North Brunswick is a very diverse suburb located 5 minutes from the city of New Brunswick. The education system is great with an amazing high school. The community is welcoming to open arms to everyone. There are many great places to eat here and if not you are not too far from any other major towns. We have great rec sports programs as followed with great travel teams for all different sports. With the brand new Chic Fil A coming, we would love new company in North Brunswick.
