Actually, Old Bridge has multiple mailing addresses. It is a large town and a great community. But our 1 post office can't handle the tens of thousands of residents. Therefore, we "piggy back" onto the neighboring post offices. Such as, Matawan, but also South Amboy, Parlin.
It is quite confusing for people moving into the area. Some search for a home in Old Bridge but then the results represent a home with address "Matawan". Based on this information they sometimes don't see the property b/c they are specifically looking for Old Bridge.
The most effective way to approach your home search is to connect with a local, full-time, realtor that knows the insides and outs of a town.
They can guide you the best.
