By the way, Tano Mall is great and getting much better each year with new stores and companies. I have a tenant who is owner of an IT Consulting Firm based at Tano Mall; he is now one of the largest global outsourcesing company partner ...

I know know many Jewish friends living in the area and across street of Tano Mall has very nice apartment for senior citizens as I heard. Jewish populated area normally very safe like Highland Park.

Hello Max,

Currently their are 2 homes on the marlket on Phoenix Ave which is the Clara Barton section of Edison. 2 homes sold on this street in 2007 last one being November.

The neighborhood is very nice, I passed by every so often when visiting Menlo Park Mall and after Barnes and Noble closed at 11pm, which is a few mintues from Rt 1, and the gas price is fantasticly low!!! at $2.84 tonight!!! you can't beat ...

I also have an Indian friend own a computer consulting firm at Tano Mall, and the Rt 1 is expanding, after finishes, you will see the commute even much easier. That expansion also signals many families moving into the area ... In general, Edison just ranked #35 of Top 100 Best Places to Live by CNN Money Magazine ...…

If you drive across Rt 1 and Tano Mall to the other side, the area also renovated recently, very nice as well. We ate there every so often as well. and going further down would be Middlesex County College where Middlesex Academy of Science based that won #1 in NJ Science League Competition in Physics last year, and #1 in Biology this year over hundreds of other high schools, if your kids want to go to that high school, very close by.

This area is very close to Metuchen Train Station as you can click to see… It is also very close to Fwy 287, Fwy 440, NJ Turnpike and GSP, very easy to commute.

Not far away is luxury Menlo Park Mall with 2 story Barnes & Noble bookstore whose 2nd floor has kids area. as you can click to see ...… Inside mall is a nice food court, nice stores like Macy's, Northstrom whose Cafe is wonderful with $1 unlimited coffee taste great like Starbuck. It also has nice Cinema and gameroom adjacent to it. Next to Barnes & Noble is a casino like Cheesecake Factory restaurant that you can have casino feeling locally. There are many great restaurants around that I all visited.

Next to the mall is beautiful Roosevelt Park that my kids going to play some basketball and ripstick skating around the wonderful lake with gorgeous lakeview. In winter time, you can play hockey there. It also has many tennis courts and BBQ tables. It is always great for our family to hang on in the afternoon before heading the mall.

Going further is family friendly Woodbridge Center Mall… where family with small kids found many good places to hang on, and Wagman supermarket is nearby where you can have nice dinner on the 2nd floor at very affordable price before shopping.

The other side is famous Middlesex County College… that you can take a realtor license course, plumbing course, ...etc and met lots of people and learn lots of things. Across St is nice drive range where you can play some golf and kids have minigolf.

The other side… you found the popular BJ's Warehouse Club where you may find lots of items you love after having a nice Subway there or a wonderful China buffet next door. The husband may baby sit at the next block Chuck E Cheese while wife shopping at BJ's. I found ourself stayed at the Chuck E Cheese every week, sometimes shop at BJ's sometimes shop at PC Richard or Michaels. kids seem to love Chucky a lot!.

I also visit this Kam Man Asian Food Market a lot that very closeby as you can see… that has one of the best price Chinese and Asian food. In that center also dozens of all sorts of Chinese and Asian stores. Right next to it is a Penang Malasia Restaurant, I found ourselves there after 9pm often since otherwise would be too crowd. and maybe pick up a box of Dunkin Donuts for the breakfast next to it. Across st is the Pepboys where you can get a wonderful Jump Starter, never need to worry about car died on road count not start, nor flat time which can inflate the tire as well.

I also find this Shoprite supermarket and various of stores and restaurants very good as you can see… I have to be there often since there is a violin repair man repair violin at home across street. very handy and affordable.

Not far away is famous Edison High School… that won 3 first prize in the Boston Music Festival that we attended last time, amazing won over many schools from dozens of states and countries. We enjoyed that weekend listening all the play in Boston near Farmingham MA area.

If you prefer Costco better, it is also very close by…
