We have lived here 44 years. Schools are good. 3 children have a total of 1 Associates, 3 Bachelors, 2 Masters and a Doctorate. There have been a few issues, but not like some would have you think with their reviews. Taxes are very good. Services (Police, Fire and Medical) are all above average. As with just about any town, there will be a few issues now and then, but, over all, it is a great place to live. I was born, raised and married in Jersey City.
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.
