I am planning to buy a 3 bedroom townhome in south/central NJ.
My wife works in Piscataway. I often commutes to NYC. The public transport to NYC is not a big concern since I drive to work. So I need some town that is reasonably close to Piscataway.

Any one have any suggestions for me? Few of my concerns are :
- Reasonable proximity to Piscataway.
- Not sky high taxes.
- Average to above avg schools (primarily concerned about Elementary school only. I just had a baby now, so school is not a primary concern right now)

I was considering Franklin Township, but getting some feedbacks about its schools. Also in consideration is Hillsborough.

My budget is 300,000 max.

Any recommendations?

I would consider Piscataway itself before Franklin. Taxes are reasonable and there are a lot of complexes. South Edison would be another option. Not sure if you would find a 3BR in Hillsborough for under 300K. Taxes would not be cheap either. My suggestions are Piscataway (well I live here), North Brunswick, South Edison, maybe East Brunswick and South Brunswick (both could be expensive), Middlesex (borough), South Plainfield.
