I have been a resident of North Plainfield for a while and I know what most people think. They think that crime is a big issue in New Jersey, and it's really not. As long as you mind your business, you can live a very good comfortable life anywhere. I rememeber things got back during the recession, however.
I know that recession had a lot to do with home prices, but a lot of these homes were left vacant for some time. Due to the face that some need work, the prices were lower than the average for the state. You can find a great deal on homes on East 2nd Street as well.
Taking all of this into consideration, and knowing what the great state of New Jersey has to offer, all that is left is returning to take a visit. I have lived here for quite a while and cannot think of a single thing to complain about in regard to my quality of life.
