I am currently looking to move to PA from NJ. I currently live and work in Newark, NJ but will transfer to a new position in Trenton in approximatley a year. What areas are best to commute from, even if I need public transportation. (I have a car, but I would like to know I can catch a train in inclement weather). My two youngest children have two more years of highschool left, so schools are not the biggest issue. Also, my oldest daughter, husband and child (newborn) would like to live in an apartment near where I will reside. I have been looking in Bucks County, around Levittown and Bristol. My price range is in the low to mid 200K. I desire 4 beds and 2 baths; quaint and quiet, but not far from shopping. Any suggestions?

Default Bristol, PA

Hi,
Bristol is a good place, especially if you're going to work in Trenton, NJ as it's only ca. 15 minutes away by train. Most trains from/to Philly stops in Bristol (I guess there are only a couple of express trains skipping Bristol). Bristol Borough is absolutely charming, Township has its flaws from what I heard. We moved to Bristol a year ago and we are really happy. You can easily find a house for 200K. If you think about a condo, there is project going to transform old Grundy factory at the Canal into luxury condos. I am not sure about the prices though. There are two malls nearby (Nashaminy and Fairless Hills) and plenty of grocery stores in a very close proximity. Good Luck!
