Growing up in Secaucus, I felt safe and comfortable. People are always friendly, and there is plenty to do. However, it is very expensive!
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).
