I like the overall feel of the place. From the nice historical buildings and great little stores around the neighborhood. To the wonderful neighbors and houses in the town. I also appreciate the easy access to certain places. To the stores, parks and many others.

Growing up with my best friends is something that will be unforgettable for me. Even though we will all go our separate ways once we venture out to different colleges, I know we will always keep in touch.
When I was in Intermediate School, my parents got divorced. Because of this, we continued to live in our town, but no longer lived next door to each other. Streets away, new neighbors; everything was different.
Some of my most memorable memories are from all my friends I have made from living there. From the "kickball tournaments" to the late night neighborhood swims, it was never anything but fun.
Living on Hardy Drive has given me so many friendships that I would not have gotten anywhere else.
Flemington Is full of life, however, in 5 years or so its not going to be as beautiful and historic as it is now. Flemington was the place where the Lindbergh trials where held, the Union Hotel is one of the most historic buildings in the United States, but our Mayor and another man would rather tare it down and build a college. they this it will bring the "young people" home. They also think we don't care, but as a young person myself, I care. And, like I mentioned above, within the next 5 years or so, we will no longer have our history, they would rather tare it down, and that is only just an example of where our town is headed. We have an outside shopping mall called Liberty Village, also very historic in its own rights. More than half the stores are vacant, and the mayor would rather see it rot. My mother works there in one of the stores, and I used to work in two other stores, and it's sad just watching the majority of our jobs closing. The kids in the town also have no place to go for fun, we go out of to find things, but we do have an Applebee's, Starbucks, Wawa, and a few other good restaurants to eat at
