    What do you like about New Brunswick?

    It's got a city feel in the middle of suburbia. In many parts, especially around Easton Ave, it's incredibly walkable, with pretty much all the amenities you need nearby. There are lots of choices as far as bars and restaurants go, and it's a decently convenient train ride to New York.

    What do you dislike about New Brunswick?
    Around rush hour, the traffic can be pretty bad just to get anywhere. Outside of downtown and the Easton Ave area, it can be pretty run-down and sketchy. The houses are generally badly maintained, but there has been lots of new development around Rutgers that's bringing much better housing to the city.

    What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in?
    Easton Ave, George Street. Both are walkable, dense, and lots of fun

    How expensive is it?
    Rents are way overpriced. Bars and restaurants can be very reasonable though, depending on where you go.

    Is it safe?
    Moderately safe downtown and in the Rutgers areas, but not safe anywhere else.

    How is the weather?
    Not the best, I guess. Hot summers, cold, snowy winters.

    Additional thoughts?
    Can be a really fun town! It's a shame the rents downtown are so expensive or it could be even better.
