My Husband and Myself are moving to NJ. My Husabnd works in New York City but i got job in Wilmington,Delaware which is not permanent though... so we are looking around the areas which have reasonable commute time to both places.

Our Budget is $400k with 3BD, 2&half bath. we are looking for town house in good community which has Professional Indian Population and good school system although we do not have kids yet.

I do not mind driving but train or bus to Delaware will be good ...my husband will commute via either train or bus.

We are thinking about all Brunswick area, East Windsor and Plainsboro. What would you suggest. I heard that Plainsboro is crowded in the peak time so commute time will add up.

WHEW! Don't envy your commutes!
Don't know much about the Brunswicks but do know that Plainsboro has a very large Indian population. The train station at Princeton Jct (which services Plainsboro) is heavily used and the wait to get a parking permit is now about 7 years. If you can get to the station between 6-6:30am you have a high probability of getting a daily spot.

East Windsor commuters use the park and ride. (Don't know about that availability).
Depending on where your husband is in NY, he's looking at 1-1 1/2 hour commute.
Going to Wilmington (by car), could be a 2 hour commute.

As far as schools, according to NJ Monthly (01/08), out of 316 districts.
*For what it's worth*-
West Windsor-Plainsboro HS-9th
South Brunswick HS-75th
East Brunswick HS-60th
East Windsor (Hightstown HS)-119

Good luck with your search!

I agree.. we drove by Plainsboro a couple of times when we were house hunting and a lot of Indian families. Schools are highly rated in the areas you mentioned. Pricey but nice neighborhoods.
