Hello All-

I would like your opinions of the best place for recent college grads to live in NJ. What place has good night life, good people, and good value? A lot of people answer with Hoboken, but that area is so expensive, close to $500sf to buy. Any other opinions? Thanks.

My Nephew lives in Hoboken and he loves it. He graduated from school last year and is working in NY for a Advertising Agency ( He is on the Heineken account and picks on me for drinking Coors Light)

I think one of the situations is that NJ cities are just beginning to get back on their feet, the "nightlife" attractions haven't necessarily come in yet - at least in huge numbers. I would suggest possibly looking at New Brunswick or the areas around there. It's a college town and is has a lot of good pubs, taverns and restaurants. In addition if you want a change of pace, there is the train station right thereso you can easily get to NY. New Brunswick is also closer to the shore - which has good nightlife during the summer.
