    Crime & Safety at North Brunswick Township: Overall safe where I live because it is on a dead end and it is not a bad part of North Brunswick. Crime has gone up since my childhood since 2005-2006 to present. Police are always visible by the movie theaters and you can see them siting in speed trap areas

    Overall Experience at North Brunswick Township: 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.

    Overall Experience at North Brunswick Township: If i had a choice to live here again, I would not. The overall atmosphere is negative in the town. people are too busy with what the world is up to, to even live their lives to the fullest. The traffic here is insane and they have barely anywhere to go. Yes, they has some stores and a shopping outlet but after awhile they don't have much to offer.
