Hoboken is a great choice, but the Jersey City waterfront has changed drastically in the past few years so I would suggest looking in both. Below are links to a sampling of 2BR properties for both Hoboken and Downtown Jersey City:

Best of luck,
Hoboken is likewise more of a residential area, with some larger buildings, but hardly any sky-scrapers. There is a very high pub and bar density in this one square mile of land, which makes it a bit much for some residence, though others enjoy the abundance of night life.
Please let me know if you would like some more resources, or if you would like to get an inventory of homes in either area.

Welcome back to New Jersey. As the first Realtor mentioned Red Bank is a good choice, nice downtown and close to the Jersey Shore and NYC. I would have to agree with Stephanie that Hoboken is a great option, at just one square mile the whole city is walkable and it has a new Hudson River walkway and 24 hour access to NYC via the PATH. Please check out my website for some recent photos, school info and a free real time MLS search.
Other towns in Northern NJ you might want to look at are Montclair, Westfield, Summit and Ridgewood. Best of luck with your search!
I too am originally from the Princeton area. For the past 6 years I've been living in the Hoboken/Jersey City area. I think that you will find the commute to be one of the most convenient in NJ with options via the PATH Trains, buses to Port Authority and ferry services to midtown and the financial district Both Hoboken and Jersey City offer a multitude of lifestyle features including restaurants, shopping, and an abundance of parks which makes walking around both cities an exciting time.

Morristown is also another possibility. More of a city than Westfield with nearby universities, a community theatre, plenty of restaurants. Please feel free to contact me regarding either place so I can answer more specific questions. I can be reached at email@example.com or by phone at 908-500-0116.
Both towns are a 15 min commute to Manhattan and therefore ideal. But just a note, because of its proximity to Manhattah the prices are higher than other neighborhoods with access to NY transportation. But none offer the vibrant town feel you're looking for.
Hope that helps! Feel free to ask any more questions.
I look forward to hearing from you.
