Fantastic place to live and raise a family! - 6/21/2006
I love living in Somerville, which offers the charm of a small town and all of the conveniences of a larger city. Its charming Victorial architecture and a lively Main street make it stand out from the crowd of "cookie-cutter" developments that has sprung out in NJ. There are a lot of great restaurants (over 40!) and Main street bustles with live on weekend nights. Schools are very good and kids get top notch education here. Municipal services are great and parks are well taken care of. Very convenient location to NYC, all the major highways.

Cost of Living - 5/9/2006
The cost of living in Somerville is out of control. Sadly, you don't get much in return for the extremely high taxes you pay.

As for the people, this is the most UNFRIENDLY place I've ever lived....and I've lived in Brooklyn and Queens! The only streets the town cares about and pays attention to are the Main Street and the streets near the hospital so that visitors will have a good impression -- otherwise, you're in forgotten land...swamp land...very poor drainage. The physical condition of the middle school reminds me of what you'd find in an inner city - the high school is quite run down also. Somerville is definately not worth way you pay to live Read More
