I know a number of people who live in Union. My cousins grew up there. The schools are not the best. My good friends that live there send their girls to private school after having a bad experience in the public schools there. It doesn't have a quaint downtown but it is close to Westfield and they do have very walkable downtown areas. It is centrally located to a lot of things. It is a diverse city and I could be wrong but I always felt that it was very blue collar...imo.

Union Township in Hunterdon county is a great place to live. I live here now, it is right outside of Clinton but we have lower taxes... If this is the Union you want to know about let me know and I can provide more info

Kean is in Union NJ. I would check it out. That area is near Elizabeth, but Union also borders Irvington. Personally, I wouldn't live there.

Do you have an agent? I know someone that has an office on Chestnut street, she's a great lady.
I can also recommend someone in Roselle Park.

that area is very safe.. because it's isolated .. right next to the tracks.. not sure if noise will be an issue.. but it is a great area.. and still convenient.. good luck!

I would agree with Jstar

the only drawback might be the noise from the trains
