The housing in regards to quality is dependent on the township that you live in. the City of Easton and Downtown, the houses are more run down and have lower/middle class citizens. As you move more North or West, the houses become bigger with more land. The homes are nicer and if you go West into Williams Township, the new communities have very nice houses. The cost of housing and utilities is good near the City of Easton and Wilson. However, as you move to the bigger-house neighborhoods, the taxes increase drastically.

Great schools, and great area to live. I lived here 11 years with my family. My daughter graduated from Wilson area high school in 2015 and my son is a freshman now. I am attending Northampton Community College which is a close commute, about 15 minutes. Love my neighborhood.
Easton specifically is a place based on tradition. We have one of the, if not the longest running college and high school rivalries. the high school that i went to, Easton Area High School has a very diverse student body and has a long running football tradition with neighboring state and school Phillipsburg High School.
