Edison, New Jersey, a suburb in Middlesex County, is a good option if you and your family are looking for a place with a quick commute to Manhattan. It has well-rated public schools—and it’s just over an hour away from Manhattan via New Jersey Transit or car.

The township is also very diverse with a large Asian community, The New York Times reports. There’s Oak Tree Road, known as Little India for its concentration of Indian restaurants and stores. There’s also lots of greenspace, thanks to Stephen J. Capestro Park and Roosevelt Park (it’s 217 acres), and country clubs like Plainfield Country Club. 

Metuchen, a separate borough in the middle of Edison, has a popular walkable downtown area that was a semifinalist for this year’s Great American Main Street award.
