"Quaint Street in a Beautiful Town"

Hibben Road is a short street linking thoroughfares of Mercer and Stockton. Situated off of the 206 and very close to Princeton University, this street is a nice one to know when making your way to campus. Otherwise, is it punctuated with modest homes and because it is so close to the other more populated streets, this is a nice place to live. I like the ambiance of Princeton and in comparison with other cities in Jersey, I would say it’s one of the prettiest. It maintains a certain New England feel that is somehow lost throughout the rest of the Garden State. Hibben Road with nearby Marquand Park and the beautiful campus of Princeton is a wonderful street to know when visiting this quaint town.

"Close to What you Need"

Allison Road is a mainly residential street. Although it doesn’t have much to offer in terms of dining or entertainment, it is a nice street to live on as the homes are well-kept, the street is very clean and scenic, and the people here are friendly. An important part of finding a good location is outlining what you like to do and finding a good place to nest that is within a fair distance of places that host the activities you’re interested in. Allison Road would be a good street to live on if one likes solitude, but doesn’t want to have to drive 45 minutes to go to the grocery store. Close to the University and to Stockton Street and Hwy 206, Allison Road would be a perfect place to live.

"A Wonderful Winfield"

Winfield Road is a part of the larger Winfield a winding residential street in Princeton. This street is gorgeous and is surrounded by trees. The homes here are expensive and expansive, as can be said for many homes in this neighborhood. Princeton, being a college town, does have a much younger population, but the more established residents tend to live further off from campus, where the homes have more square footage and there is less traffic. This would be a wonderful town for those affiliated and not affiliated with the university to reside, as it is scenic and filled with friendly people. Though this street is lacking in terms of entertainment, the nearby thoroughfares have much more to offer. All in all, this is a great street to live on.

"An Oasis for those who still want Proximity"

North Road is a pretty residential street surrounded by trees. The homes in this neighborhood are modest, and though this street isn't as exciting as the streets throughout the city, you'll be happy to find a nice ambiance here. On major perk of North Road is vicinity. Mountain Lake Park is nearby, and with walking paths and ponds, this scenic escpae is a wonderful feature of this neighborhood. Also, on nearby Pretty Brook Road, there is a tennis club. North Road's connectivity make it a nice oasis from the more hectic areas of town.

"Besides the Trees..."

Rosedale Road is a wonderful and dynamic street in Princeton. The YMCA is on this street which is a great place to get a cheap and comprehensive gym membership. On this street, you'll also find the Credit Union of New Jersey and the Johnson Park Day School. The Chauncey Conference Center is also popular with tennis courts and private meeting rooms. All in all, a great street.

"Medical Researching: Keep Your Pets Safe!"

"Calm and Comfortable"

Russell Road is filled with doctor's offices and is not the most exciting street in the city. I think that this would be a nice location to live on with the University nearby as well as more interesting and dynamic streets. The homes on this street are average and the people are friendly. This street is more mature than streets nearby, given that the University tends to infiltrate generally every aspect of living in this town. All in all, I think that this would be a nice place to live if you're looking to relocate to a calmer town.

"Are You Feeling Ill?"

If you are, Ewing Street is the place to be. This street is filled with doctor's offices and private practices ranging from optometry to ear, nose, and throat. Other than that, this street isn't all that remarkable. North Harrison Street has a lot more to offer in the way of entertainment, and Princeton, being the great town it is, has so much to offer, it's ok if one street is a dud.

Unlike its neighbors, this street is very nice to look at and its buildings all share a very unique architectural design. The trees on this street are magnificent. Princeton is one of the prettiest cities in New Jersey, and with its suburban yet current feel, this would be the perfect street for virtually anyone.

"Small Town Feel"

You shouldn't expect much from this street. It’s mainly residential and really has nothing to offer in the way of great food. If you’re looking for somewhere to live, however, this place could be considered on account of its accessibility with more interesting streets nearby. Princeton is a quiet town centered around the university, so this would be a great place to settle for another looking for something a little more small town.

"Not As Cool As Nearby Street"

Similar to other streets in this area, this is mainly residential. Typically, the restaurants and shopping runs on the Avenues, while the streets are reserved for housing and leisure. I enjoyed this street in wonderful Princeton and thought it was pretty, though I’m not sure it would be all that desirable for a long term living situation. The Westminster Choir College is nearby, and there, you will be able to find more interesting fare.

"Heartbeat of Princeton"

Spring Street is a main commercial street near Princeton University. This is the heartbeat of this neighborhood, filled with eclectic cafe, bustling businesses, and delightful restaurants and shops. Chelsea Crimpers is a popular hair salon on the street, with fair prices and great stylists. Chuck's Spring Street Cafe is one of the most popular restaurants in town, with classic American food and Ivy League atmosphere. Farrington's Music is a great music store if you're looking for the latest Beyonce album or a vintage Billie Holiday record on vinyl. Every inch of this street is filled with a unique store and a wonderful vibe, and would be a great place to spend some money on a Saturday Afternoon.

"On 37th Street"

Similar to other streets in the neighborhood, 37th Street is a nice street in a quaint neighborhood. With small service-oriented businesses, friendly people, and a few tress, this street could be one to consider on a move to Queens. I like the idea of living here, if and only if it is still easy to get to midtown Manhattan, which from this section of Queens isn’t terribly inconvenient, but isn’t as easy as it is on other streets. Also, having a car on this street might be something worth considering.

Pine Street is a great street in Princeton, with a little more going on than the other streets nearby, though Nassau Street has more to offer. Like many others in this neighborhood, Pine Street is kind of quiet. There are only a few small businesses and nothing much in the way of entertainment. It’s kind of a simple neighborhood, but it’s nice, and the people there seemed friendly. I think this street is worth taking a look at when considering a move to Princeton.

Hornor Lane is primarily a residential street, with some small businesses and shops on nearby streets. This neighborhood was gorgeous, with trees surrounding the modest homes. There wasn’t as much noise here as on the other streets. In terms of food or fun, I don’t think you’ll be in luck here, but in terms of some nice housing options, you might be in luck.

Maclean Street is a simple residential street nearby the Princeton Cemetery. On this street, you'll find Aaron Lodge, a three star hotel in Princeton, and some average housing. This would be a good hotel to stay at when visiting Princeton due to its vicinity to other attractions in town. Witherspoon Street could be a first stop, with more to offer than the side streets in this neighborhood. Overall, Maclean is a bit nicer and cleaner than the streets nearby, though Princeton as a whole is a really well-kept town.

"A Picturesque Street in a Nice Town"

Carnegie Drive is a mainly residential street located in Princeton, New Jersey. This street is filled with beautiful old trees and small average homes. I like Princeton because of the old architecture, college-town feel, and the wonderful old homes here. On Carnegie Drive, one major advantage is the country feel of the street, as most of New Jersey isn't as picturesque as Princeton is. Living here is somewhat expensive in comparison to other cities in the Garden State, but well worth it, as education here is prime. Transportation in Princeton is somewhat limited, though the theme seems to be going green, with many riding bicycles to and from work and school.

A variety of businesses line this street, though there isn’t much in the way of “a lot of fun.” This is what I refer to as a residentially convenient street, with various goods and services being offered to the people who live in the neighborhood, but to an outsider, it’s not worth the trek. These things can be found in your neighborhood. Fortunately, everything is compact. In New York City, you’re wise to know that food runs on the avenues, not on the streets, so for lunch, you should try a nearby street.

Here, you’ll find several small businesses and things to do, though there isn’t really much in the way of fun. Of course, as with any city, you have residential areas and you have commercial areas. Generally, boroughs are a mix of both, but this neighborhood is mainly residential. I wouldn’t think to come here to find a place to live though, as I wasn’t really impressed with this particular street or the people. All in all, an average block.

This short street in the Bronx wasn’t really all that impressive. It was mainly residential and the residences weren’t all that great to look at. All in all, it was an average street on an average block. For more convenience, I suggest that you try something nearby. There always seemed to be people on the street and places to go. I wish there were more parks in the East Bronx, however.

"On Bathgate Avenue"

A variety of businesses line this street, though there isn’t much in the way of “a lot of fun.” This is what I refer to as a residentially convenient street, with various goods and services being offered to the people who live in the neighborhood, but to an outsider, it’s not worth the trek. These things can be found in your neighborhood. Fortunately, everything is compact. In New York City, you’re wise to know that food runs on the avenues, not on the streets, so for lunch, you should try a nearby street.

"On Washington Avenue"

This street is really just a thoroughfare and there isn’t much to offer in the way of food or things to do. Perhaps you’d just enjoy the quiet simplicity, though I think this is a little too far for commuting to work each day.

"East Burnside Avenue"

Not interested by this South Bronx street. I wasn’t very impressed. I didn’t think that it was nice to look at and thought that because the streets around it were relatively convenient, that it would also house the same benefits, but I was sadly mistaken. This may not be the place for the NYC culture you were searching for, but there’s definitely a good vibe here.

"East 190th Street"

Seton Avenue isn’t much of anything. The nearby park is nice, but not really worth the trip. You won’t find much in the way of anything on this South Bronx street. Though it wasn’t really a sight for sore eyes, this street was calm and nicely populated, and I didn’t feel that I could make a home here, though there isn’t much in the way of food and exciting things to do. You’ll have to go to the next street for that.

"East 189th Street"

You’ll find a lot of things nearby this street, but nothing but housing on it. I think that this is a nice street, but is one of those that may or may not be considered in “New York City”. As you may know, Manhattan and 5 boroughs encompass the massive expanse known as NYC, but there are some streets that are borderlines. This could be considered one of them, as the quality of life and many other things shift in this neighborhood.

"On East 185th Street"

This area is a bit run down and is definitely not a place I would recommend for living options.The nearby streets capture most of what’s going on in this neighborhood, as this street is mainly residential and is not all that exciting. There are a few small business and things of that nature, but not much to write home about.

"East 182nd Street"

Here, you’ll find several small businesses and things to do, though there isn’t really much in the way of fun. Of course, as with any city, you have residential areas and you have commercial areas. Generally, boroughs are a mix of both, but this neighborhood is mainly residential. I wouldn’t think to come here to find a place to live though, as I wasn’t really impressed with this particular street or the people. All in all, an average block.

"On East 183rd Street"

This short street in the Bronx wasn’t really all that impressive. It was mainly residential and the residences weren’t all that great to look at. All in all, it was an average street on an average block. For more convenience, I suggest that you try something nearby. There always seemed to be people on the street and places to go. I wish there were more parks in the East Bronx, however.

"East 178th Street"

East 178th Street is a nice street in the Bronx. It is filled with small businesses and a quaint atmosphere. The views of the river are very nice and this area is well trafficked, but not terribly loud. It’s a nice oasis from the hecticness of the midtown area. I really like this neighborhood and think it should be considered on a move to the Bronx.

"On Howard Place"

Howard Place is a mainly residential street within blocks from the beautiful Prospect Park. Though you won't find much in the way of shopping on this street, you will find some beautiful housing options and a really friendly vibe. This street is very well connected as there are many metros available, and I would also like to mention that this is one of the more popular sections of Brooklyn.

You can catch the F train at 15th Street at Prospect Park. This is a beautiful neighborhood and I think its a prime location if you're looking for a place to live here in darling Brooklyn.

"Henry Street Delights"

There’s not much going on in the way of fun on Henry street, and similar to those around it, it’s only perk is that it is nearby the other more eventful streets. I did, however, enjoy the wonderful architecture and friendly atmosphere of the street. It is nearby the park and is very conveniently located in this bustling neighborhood.

"On Remson Avenue"

Another street with convenience designed for the residents,Remson Avenue, is quite simply home to many people. There is nothing remarkable here, and as landmarks and sights tend to dwindle as you climb further uptown, there seems to be an overall lack of things to do in terms of a touristy nature. For the residents, however, I thought that the street must be acclaimed for its convenience and overall nice vibe. All in all, a nice street for those that live there.
