The atmosphere in North Brunswick is about as diverse as it gets in Central Jersey.

Whether you are looking for a one-level condo, a townhouse or an elegant estate, there is plenty to choose from in different sizes and price points.
The Hidden Lake section of North Brunswick, located between Route 1 and Highway 27, is an especially popular residential area due to its many and diverse home choices. And yes, there is a lake in Hidden Lake, although many people don’t know where to find it!
Shopping is not a problem in North Brunswick, as a number of smaller and larger strip malls line the major roads. Large indoor malls such as Quakerbridge, Menlo Park and Woodbridge Center are not too far away. The North Brunswick school system serves the community with four elementary schools as well as a middle and high school.
Many residents of the township commute to New York City, and the two train stations in New Brunswick and at Jersey Avenue provide convenient transportation. An express bus also makes stops along Finnegans Lane and Route 1 on its way to the city.
