Could someone tell me about Monmouth Junction? Is this a good or bad area? What is crime like there? What type of people live there? What kinds of things are there to do? Is this area better or worse than Dayton?

Monmouth Junction is small. It used to be rural, but has been built up tremendously over the past 20 years. You will find old houses mixed with new McMansions. There really is nothing to do in Mon. Jct. itself but it is a hop skip and a jump to Princeton. Dayton I guess is about the same. You might find more older houses there but a lot of new ones. I would say minimal to zero crime - growing Asian Indian population - good school -

monmouth junction is quiet, i think it's just enough city-like atmosphere (lots of shopping areas) mixed with open rural areas. 1hr to philly and nyc, & very close to princeton.

Default It's family life

not a swinging singles town....but you aren't too far from anything.

There is a bit of "trash" and a lot of Mc Mansions. Don't know the crime rate, but the difference in income is obvious. Those who keep their broken down fridge's on the porch and their El Camino's in the driveway with funny aqua circles painted on their house (no lie) vs. nicely landscaped lawns with half-cirlce driveways and no funny aqua circles painted on their house.

Wouldn't be my first choice, but then again, 99% of Jersey isn't my first choice either.

Good Luck.

Default I believe

it's "New Road". Now you have me wondering as well. I haven't been down that way in a few years - since I stopped working in that area.

If you know the elementary school all you have to do is drive by it (it should be on your left hand side) and make a left the first time you can - and head out toward Rt. 1.

Monmout Jct. is cute, but if you weave your way into the neighborhoods that are pre-2000 (like pre-1980's), you'll see a little something different.
