Fairly quiet, not much through traffic; sometimes too crowded when multiple homes have parties/ gatherings on the same day. Otherwise very calm and orderly, easy to navigate. Very open, wide, large spaces, nice sidewalks, good neighbors.

I have lived in North Brunswick all my life. Just like any other neighborhood there are some good areas and some bad. The school systems are decent but are getting worse and more dangerous as the years go by. North Brunswick is very diverse. The taxes are pretty high. North Brunswick is close to downtown New Brunswick which has great restaurants and bars.

I have lived here all my life, however, I think it is a time for change and live somewhere else. I am very familiar with North Brunswick. I had a great childhood in North Brunswick while making great friends in the process. I see North Brunswick being the most diverse community in the state of NJ.
