Hello,
I'm planning on attending a show at this venue, taking NJ Transit from Penn Station. Is the area surrounding the theatre safe? Is train station ---> theatre walkable & safe...Thanks in advance...

IMO yes. Went there many times when we lived in NJ.

Go to Google maps and type in NJ Transit or Amtrak,New Brunswick NJ and you will see that the walk from the train station is about 5-6 blocks along George st.

Seconded. It's safe. Not everyone in the neighborhood is a Harvard graduate, but you won't have any problems.

Yes it is safe. It's only about a 10 minute walk to get from the train station to the theater. The theater is right in the heart of downtown and there will be plenty of college students around. There is a big apartment/dorm building right across the street from the theater. 20 years ago that area was a little sketchy, but it's not like that anymore.

Agree with all the comments- and furthermore will suggest you try hopstop.com website.
It will tell you how long a walk, where to head, where to turn. I took the train and walked to State Theatre a year or so ago and would do it again. You are walking in a very populated, busy area so truly no worries, well lit streets to walk on if it's at night.

Very safe. Lots of Rutgers students walking around. One cool thing is if the Barnes & Noble near the train station is open when you're waiting for your train than you can sit inside B&N cafe & they have an electronic board with real time train departures. A nice perk for me in winter. <g>

If you have time step in to the Zimmerli Museum (it's free)

Frank Tumulty, the original owner of Tumulty's was one of my HS teachers in Edison twp back in the early 60's. Was not much of a teacher but heard he was a great pub owner.

Not sure, Civics or maybe History. That was 50+ years ago.

I guess if he had been a more memorable teacher than you might recall what subject he taught. <g> At least he ended up finding an occupation that he's good at.
