Because of the presence of the university and the large number of highly-educated people who live there, Princeton would definitely have the most quants. As to your kids, you need to tell us how far away they live.

I would agree that Princeton would be the best town in that section of NJ, based on your criteria. Plainsboro right next door is also nice. Montgomery is also nice from what I hear.

East Brunswick is also a very nice town with a great school system, however it doesn't have that "downtown" thing. Although it has route 18 with a ton of typical suburban stores. North Brunswick is building a major train terminal as a sort of half-way point between NYC & Trenton (and on to Philly). They are building a small downtown and condo & townhouse community to go with it. And it is surrounded by several suburban shopping centers. But that might not be done for another year.

If you can go further north I would add Morristown, Ridgewood, and Rutherford. I've never been to Red Bank, but I hear it's trendy and it's near the shore.

Bernardsville is a beautiful, quaint town with lots to do for kids. I know there are newly renovated apartments above "The Station" downtown that might fit your bill. There are also new condos, they might only be for purchase. There are a couple homes for rent as well on Mt. Airy right now.

Schools are great, nice restaurants, grocery stores, some shopping, lots of school activities. Kids are always running around the neighborhood together themselves. Very safe.

Princeton over Benardsville as B is a thumbnail sketch of Princeton. P has so much more choices than B ville.


Look at Hopewell, Blawnberg, Titusville, Rocky Hill, Pennington. Hopewell and Pennington have nice main st towns.

Just an insight, regular gasoline in bernardsville on rt 202 was 2.79 a gallon. 25 minutes down 202, the other side of the mountain from Princeton area, gasoline was selling for 2.19, now 2.33.
