I'll try this again straight to the point. I would really
appreciate input on this guys, if you don't mind.

Which town is better and why.
Safety, Schools, Location and conveniences, community life


Thank to any of you to take out time to reply to my question.

Both of these towns have good reputations. The one closer to your job would be the better choice.

Thanks for the reply.

I wish it where that easy. The job is about equidistant from both towns.

without knowing the town in which you're working it's hard to say which would be better, although I tend to agree with the first responder who says live in the town closer to work. equidistant does not equate to time, but distance, so the town is crucial.

if the job is in Somerset County (Bedminster, Bridgewater, Hillsborough area), I'd choose BR because the commute will be better.

The job is in New Brunswick. The location of either house has a 30 minute commute time. Although, Princeton is closer in actual distance, the Basking Ridge commute has more freeway usage.

I travel these roads daily as a delivery driver and I think Princeton is an easier commute to and from NB than Basking Ridge. Route 27 is a direct line between Princeton and NB.
Basking Ridge is not as easy. Rt 18 from NB to I287 to 206/202 and a few back roads.
But you can't go wrong living in either town. The only slight negative to Princeton is that it is a college town and you will have more college kids patrolling the streets. ( would not bother me but it might bother some)

given the job is in NB, I agree. if living in BR, getting from 287 to 18 is miserable.
