I may be starting a job in Edison and I am wondering if anyone has any suggestions as to where to live. I am not interested in living in Edison or Woodbridge. Too congested for my taste. I currently live in Plainsboro, but I hate the commute on Route 1 North. I am looking for a commute possibly under 30 minutes and as a single woman safety is a concern. Any suggestions? I've thought about Metuchen, but am curious about other areas. Thanks!

I think hIghland park is a nice and safe place. You should check it out! I dont live there but my husband's coworker lives there and he likes the neighborhood. Plus it is close to edison.

Good luck with your search!

Parts of South Plainfield, Highland Park, Metuchen, Piscataway. Actually I'd probably look towards Piscataway as my first choice--lot's of nice areas there and a lot of uncongested areas that are still close to the things you need.

Metuchen and Highland Park are great towns and generally good options, but if congestion's a concern, they might not be. They're no better than Edison or Woodbridge in that regard. The entire area is pretty congested (you're going to have to use backed up highways no matter where you go), but towns like Piscataway and East Brunswick tend to be a little more spread out at least.

East Brunswick might have the worst traffic of all of them, Rt 18 is rediculous

You can find plenty of ways around Route 18.

Right...like I said, this entire area is filled with congested highways but towns like those are a little more spread out and the actual towns don't get quite as jammed up as the Edison/Woodbridge area.
