I am about to start a new job in New Brunswick and I am trying to decide where to look for apartments. I am 23 and I will be moving with my girlfriend and my cat. We would like to live in a relatively young area with a wide variety of food options and relatively easy access to NYC as we both have friends there. I would ideally like to commute no more than about 40 minutes in each direction, preferably less. My price range is about $1000-1500/mo possibly a little more.

Having looked through some threads, I am inclined to think that Jersey City is my best option. I have been looking at Journal Square, Port Liberte, and Society Hill which all seem to be close enough. Since I will be commuting, available/affordable parking is a must.

I know very little about this area so any advice would be very helpful. Does not necessarily need to be JC, but for any location outside of JC please provide details. Thanks!

New Brunswick itself or across the Raritan in Highland Pk. Some streets in NB like Remsen & blocks around it I'd avoid. But anyplace you see Rutgers students is pretty safe. Plenty of bars & restaurants plus a theater and all that Rutgers offers.

Train to NYC in 45-50 mins.

Nice parts of JC might be hard on your budget.

That's a good thought, I haven't spent any time in NB yet and I forgot about the Rutger's presence. What areas do you recommend looking at?
