Hi All friends:
We have been looking for a townhouse in middlesex county. There are quite some in Piscataway and South Amboy. Would you please provide some information regarding these two towns? Is it safe in South Amboy? Is there a train to NYC from Piscataway? Both my wife and I are working in the city and we need a convenient commute to the city. I visited South Amboy twice. It seems the town is kind of old. Please provide all your thoughts. Thanks very much.

Thanks for replying. Are there a lot of young people in South Amboy? When I went there during the weekend, we did see few people on the street. What do you think about Piscataway? Thanks again

South Amboy is up and coming. I live a few towns away and I've been watching the improvements. It's safe and becoming hip, like a small Red Bank. I think real estate will be a great investment there. I'm keeping my eye out for a good buy.

Thanks very much for the information. I am also looking for a house in South Amboy.

Even I checked out south amboy. However, I am not sure about it. There was one part of the city which was really nice and if you go down a few miles it changes completely. From a long term perspective I guess it should be good.

Piscataway is a very large sprawled out township. There is no downtown and really, no "there" there. There is no rail station in Piscataway and it's nearest station depends upon where in the township you live, but would either be Dunellen (to the north), Edison (to the southwest) or New Brunswick (to the southeast). It's a very quiet suburban middle-class community.

Default I gotta reply

My wife and I both purchased a condo at Beacon Pointe, we are 29yrs old. I recommended the area to Kamit as well. We love the area and as the poster stated above, it is definitely up and coming. The plans they have for the community are very exciting and you are steps from the train station (or at least I will be) and it will eventually have the Red-Bank feel, once the construction is completed and all the stores are occupied. Check it out for yourself.......

Thumbs up South Amboy

Agreed, South Amboy is one of the top places to live in Middlesex County. Check out Beacon Point if you are in the $350k-$400k range. Also check out Harbor Village if your budget is in the $500k-$1mm range (on the water).

IMO, if you're going to spend $350k+ for a condo in South Amboy, you're better off buying a house in Woodbridge- it'd be two stops closer on the train, and is already an established community. While South Amboy may be "up and coming", there's still some crummy areas and the school system isn't up to par yet.
