Secaucus is a beautiful place to live in. The people here can be very friendly. The plaza is a nice place to get what you need, and there are some nice supermarkets nearby as well. Almost everything is within walking distance, so a car isn't necessary to have (although it can be useful). The town is very welcoming and holds many recreational activities for people of all ages and their sports teams are incredible. The curriculum in the Secaucus public schools prepares students with outstanding teachers and opportunities. I could say that Secaucus is truly an amazing town to live in.
