No, it's not. I can make JC in about 45 mins. Warren County isn't as far away from the rest of the world as most of you would think..lol : ) I made it to princeton the other day in under 1.5 hrs..in AM traffic going down Rt. 206. I also made it home from Creamridge (Ocean Co.) the next day in under 1.5 hrs. It just seems so far away because we still have trees along our major highways which makes it feel like you are in the middle of nowhere : )

I haven't read all of the posts, but what about Somerset? Some parts of Somerset County are definitely commutable to JC in about an hour (Especially if you're near the Tpike during non-rush hour times).Or, what about Ridgewood area? I dont know how long the commute is, though, but shouldn't be more than an hour...

Ringwood. It's 45 minutes from JC without traffic - I have been living in downtown JC for 3 years, and my parents live in Ringwood, so I have made the trip many times. It is definitely rural & has good schools.

Default You should all consult the federal defitiniton of a rural area

You need to familiarize yourselves with what constitutes the federal definition of rural territory before debating the subject matter. There are no parts of New Jersey that are even remotely rural. Please educate yourselves and stop wasting everybody's time. The following link explains what I am talking about in greater detail.
