Good afternoon Everyone, I searched this forum but I found nothing recent. I'm currently shopping around in the area and noticed that the Raritan River runs near Walnut Ave, is this part of town considered a "flood zone"? I like the area and like the schools but I almost positive this will be a deal breaker for me.

I have a co-worker that lives in Raritan off of Old York Rd and she states her home is not in a flood zone.

Just wanted to get some other opinions.

Thanks in advanced to everyone for your input!!

Have a nice day!

A better site is the Floodsmart site. If you put in a specific address, it will give you a pretty good idea what to expect. You can't generalize because zones can be different from house to house.

Then ask your insurance agent to run a specific determination through their Write Your Own carrier's web site, which will give you the same zone your bank will find. That will determine whether or not it will be required, and how big a problem it is going forward.

It's a very good informational site overall.

Be careful of Walnut Street. There is a slumlord who owns a bunch of houses and rents out to white trash.

Of all the areas of Bridgewater Twp, Bradley Gardens is considered one of the least desirable along with Finderne. Too bad since there are some nice homes in both sections. As any realtor will tell you it's all about location.

Raritan Boro is a nice little town. It's part of the Bridgewater Raritan Regional school district. DO you have any specific questions, or is there some particular info you would like? Or do you just want people's general opinions of the Boro?
