What’s a reasonable commute/good area to live in the Princeton, NJ area for someone in their late 20s? New company is based around there & want to be close to fun things to do/meet people.

I mean downtown Princeton by the university is going to have the most “culture”. Princeton is pretty much surrounded by exurbia until you get to New Brunswick. You could drive between New Brunswick and Princeton in about 30-45 minutes in the morning.

Down 27 against traffic would take 60-90 minutes? Google says 30-60 if you leave at 8:30.

You can just live in Princeton, by the university. Will probably be a little more expensive than surrounding towns. South brunswick, east brunswick, monroe, lawrenceville aren’t that bad of a commute and nice areas but personally I would just live in princeton. Will have the most to do, great area, etc
