Hi everyone, I am about to move to NJ with my boyfriend, and we are looking for a place within walking distance to NJ transit station. My bf goes to Rutgers and he also interns at Bridgewater. I recently got an offer to work neat time squares, NYC. Which town should we target? I want to be able to walk to train station, and my bf should not be too far from his school/work. We are also looking for a upscale place with 1 bed rent from 1500 -- 2000.
thanks so much in advance, any recommendation would be greatly appreciated.

What do you feel is an acceptable commute time for you?

You could live in downtown Somerset which have a bunch of new apartments for rent within walk of the raritan valley line...

He would have about a 15 minute drive.

I suggest you stay in one of the New Brunswick Luxury towers while your BF is going to school. It's really close to Rutgers campus (walkable in many cases), walkable to the New Brunswick train station (train rides about 45 minutes to NY Penn station)... and about 20 minutes to Bridgewater by car.

Here's one of them: Skyline Tower | Apartments in New Brunswick, NJ

Agree that New Brunswick is a good choice given the criteria that OP stated.

See www.njtransit for train / bus schedules. The train at NB is The NorthEast Corridor Line.

There's also a bus that runs from NB train station to the City (Port Authority Bus Terminal at 42nd Street) or to Princeton in the other direction. Coach USA

Also, Rutgers U. runs buses around their campuses.

Welcome to NJ.

Downtown New Brunswick. Find a nice building near George, Albany or Easton but stay away from the slummy parts south of downtown.

Rutgers in New Brunswick? Newark is a big enough campus that specifying would help.

Thanks for everyone's suggestions, yes he goes to NB campus. I think the vue is a good choice for us so far, does anyone know if other train stations have a nice apt that is like 5-10 mins from station? like maybe near edison or couple stops north? Also, if anyone has lived in the vue, any feedbacks on this place?
Thanks so much!
