it has very good schools. The public education school district in my city is one of the best in the state, and many people move to my city to attend the public school. That being said, the school environment is very competitive and could be stressful for students.

When one moves to the cushy suburbs of New Jersey, they should consider educational opportunities, cost of living, and taxes. Livingston, in particular, is known for its superb schooling system – articulate professors, rigorous curriculum, and breadth of extracurriculars for students. If one decides to move to Livingston, they should also know – you’ll likely fall asleep to the low hymn of cicadas.

Livingston, New Jersey, is a tranquil bedroom community that lies not too far from bustling New York City. Although it has less than 40,000 residents, one can find movie theaters, diverse restaurant offerings, several highly ranked public schools, and terrific parks there. However, Livingston’s local tax rates are notoriously high, and some town residents complain about the lack of recreational opportunities within the town. Ultimately, Livingston is a great place for family-oriented individuals seeking a comfortable middle-class lifestyle––and it is especially convenient for those whose jobs require commuting to NYC.
