More important than how "good" the towns are, is how good the neighborhood is where you might find a house you like. New Jersey is the most densely populated state and almost ANYTHING you want is within easy commuting distance. Nevertheless, convenience to what you yourself want and need and the specific program in the local school system can be very important factors in making a decision.
If you work with a Realtor, many will be able to steer you to good situations for you and you should also be willing to do some investigation on your own, because it's always better to see for yourself what is on offer. Things that I might find not a problem might be more inconvenience than you might like, for example.
Having lived in Central Jersey all my life, I'd recommend it highly and would not willingly leave (and I've had several opportunities to do so.)

Monmouth Junction is a section of South Brunswick off of the Rt 130 corridor which has access to the Monroe Bus Terminal at Exit 8A of the NJTP which would offer you about an hour 15 min commute to NYC by bus....
It is the farthest south you would want to be as a NYC commuter, so head to North or East Brunswick then to the Edison area to keep your self in the 1 hour window as those towns will give you both bus and train transportation....
Middlesex County has been a NYC Commuter Hub with bus, train and highway availabilty.....
Happy New Year and give me a call if you need assistance..Roy Minieri

I do know the second half. M.J. is nice; it's small; It's close to a Post Office, a pick-it-yourself-or-not Farm, a Good library (South Brunswick Library) with a lot of Internet stations; Shop-Right and Stop-and-Shop; CVS, Walgreen's.
South of M.J. is the Princeton Junction train station
Edison, next to Iselin, has the Northeast Corridor line, of NJ Transit.
