Hi, I will move from CA to NJ and am looking for an apartment (2br $1500-2000). I will work at Edison, but don't find any good one. There are several nice apartments/townhomes in Parlin, North Brunswick and New Brunswick, Highland Park. Any suggestions? I want to live close to work (concerned driving in the snow), but would like to live a newer and nicer apartment.

Thank you in advance for your help

The complex I think you're referring to in Parlin is probably Camelot at La Mer. It is nice and in a good, safe area. There is a pool, playground, and other ammenties. The townhomes run closer to 2000 there...

Default school system

Thank you for your advice. I have two young kids ( 3y and 1y). Is the school system good in Parlin? The apartment/townhome in Parlin is the one you mentioned. I am a Chinese and glad that we will have a lot Chinese grocery stores in Edision. However, the housing in Edison is not good and althought Edison is one of the safest cities in the US, there were several thefts, burglers....reported by renters in a community. I don't understand!

Hmmmm. I have no idea where you're talking about then.

The elementary schools in Parlin (Sayreville) are good, not spectacular, but solid. Sayreville is smaller than Edison.

You will have lots of choices in Edison. It all depends on whether you need a school system or not. Also depends on what type of town you are looking for. If you are looking for towns with things to do at night or within close proximety, you are looking at New Brunswick, Highland Park and maybe Edison. If you are looking for suburb areas then you are looking at Parlin and North Brunswick. All depends on what you want. If you want good schools then you are looking at Edison or North Brunswick ONLY! If I can help you with any other questions, please do not hesitate. GOOD LUCK!

Default traffic from North Brunswick to Edison??

Thanks a lot for all replies.

Now I am thinking of living in North Brunswick. Anyone know the traffic condition during the rush hour from North Brunswick to Edison (north edision and close to islin)? I am still worried about driving in the snow (I am moving from CA).

All the towns you mentioned are relatively close to one another. Maybe try driving around them to get the feel before you make your decision.
