The Beautiful Flower in the Garden State

When my job relocated me to the east coast, I knew I was not going to be able to afford to live in Manhattan. Luckily, my realtor found me a house in Roselle, New Jersey, literally miles from work and everything I could have ever wanted. I can escape Roselle by a number of main arteries, from the Garden State Parkway, I-78, or the New Jersey Turnpike.

When I want to spoil myself, it's over the bridge to NYC and hitting the finest restaurants or clothing boutiques in the country. The best areas in Roselle are certainly the local eateries. Little Italian restaurants are everywhere, where you can get the best pizza on earth or local favorites like calzones and strombolis.

I'm in the middle of everything, being able to get to either Philadelphia, NYC, Atlantic City, or Hartford Connecticut, in literally less than one hour either direction. I didn't forget the beaches, some of the greatest in the world, from famous Jenkinson's Boardwalk in Point Pleasant to Seaside Heights.
