I am sorry, but I disagree with all of the suggestions that other Realtors have presented. I doubt if they have ever personally commuted to these destinations half as much as I have. First, let me say that I grew up in East Brunswick and commuted from there, North Brunswick and New Brunswick for about 8 years. Overall, I commuted to NYC for 33 years, most of which was from East Windsor. The problem with East Brunswick is that the most convenient commute to NYC is by Bus where you have to schlep to the Port Authority terminal then take the subway unless you are a short walk from it. I hated the bus, because it is slow, dangerous, and I am 6'-1" tall and my knees were always up against the back of the seat in front of me. Moreover, a husband and wife that are commuting to NYC & PA would have to split up to take mass transportation because the PA commuter would also want the train, the most comfortable mode of commuting, hands down!. The other problem with East Brunswick is the congestion. Take a ride down Route 18 to see what I mean. The absolute best option for you and your husband is to commute TOGETHER (at least to the train station) from Mercer County making sure your new home is no more than a 10 minute drive to either the Princeton Junction or Hamilton train station. The other huge benefit is that this area of Mercer County has less congestion and, believe it or not, will have faster commute times to both NYC & PA by train. Here is what I write on my website for my East and West Windsor, Robbinsville and Lawrenceville listings: For those not familiar with the area, they may be surprised at exactly how much the East Windsor â€“ Princeton area has in store for them. Friendly neighborhoods, great schools, beautiful parks, awesome sport fields and a myriad of cultural activities are just a few of the highlights found here. This home is also ideal for commuters because of its location between Philly & NYC and its access to major highways and bus and rail public transportation facilities. NYC commuters find living in the Princeton area ideal because of the fantastic rail service with Princeton Junction serviced by both Amtrak and NJ Transit rail service. Moreover, during rush hour periods, express trains take a mere 30 minutes to Newark Penn Station, which is less travel time than trains departing from the Brunswick to Edison areas which are 15 miles closer to NYC but are subject to local train service! East Windsor's strategic central New Jersey location provides less than an hourâ€™s car commute to New York City, Philadelphia, the New Jersey shore and Pocono mountain recreational areas. Well known for its historical and architectural significance, the East Windsor â€“ Princeton area is truly a great place to live.
