I enjoy the fact that Sayreville is a very quiet neighborhood, it has beautiful green areas and although houses are spaced apart, they’re conveniently located close enough. They’re are shopping areas within short driving distance as well convenient stores for our everyday needs. The public schools are also quite exceptional. Sayreville is also a very diverse place with everyone embracing each other.

As a child, Sayreville was a rather boring place to grow up. Nevertheless, the surrounding area kept us amused (New York City being within an hour's drive), and the tight-knit community making for the best friendships. Everyone knows everyone in Sayreville, whether this is good or bad is up to you. Teenagers use drugs and party to cope with the boredom of living here, but always flock back after high-school ends, as everyone eventually becomes like family.
Sayreville is a very excellent suburban area in New Jersey! It offers many job, educational, and volunteering opportunities. The town is family friendly and very safe. Housing reaches within all incomes and many recreational areas.
