We’ll be working in the Princeton area in the fall and are considering a move to the Yardley/Newton/Washington Crossing area. Just looking at the difference in taxes, both income and property, PA seems so much more attractive. But how bad is the commute really every day from these towns in to Princeton? Any advice you have is much appreciated! Thank you!

It depends on where in Princeton, but it's not great anywhere, TBH. At rush hour, traffic into NJ backs up at the Scudders Falls bridge and on the ramp onto 295 at the Yardley/New Hope exit. In NJ, it backs up approaching Rt 1, and Rt 1 itself is slow as well. If you don't need to get on Rt 1, both Princeton Pike and 206 are stop & go from Lawrence up to Princeton. From Yardley, it's normally 25-30 mins to Princeton. During AM rush, I'd count on at least 45.

From Wash Crossing, you'd probably take back roads across the narrow bridge there then Pennington-Wash Cross Rd to the 31 circle then up past Rosedale Park or something like that. I'm not sure what the traffic is like on that route.

I have a friend who commutes from Fishtown daily during the week, and it takes him like an hour at least as long as he leaves early enough. On the way back is much more difficult.
