Local Reviews

I like where I am located and how easy it is to get places. There are plenty of shops around. I would be able to walk to places to get groceries and things like that if I didn't have a car.

Nearby police stations, nearby restaurants, nearby parks, nearby public transportation. everything around here is easily accessible.

What I love most is the amount of green space. Trees everywhere, NJ Green Acres areas, public walk/bike paths in the next town over ( I live right by that border) County park for walking and nature study right in town. Public Libraries have great programs,

My favorite store is within walking/driving distance, and I am within 3 miles of 3 malls in my county. I also have easy access to public transportation.
