Crime Probably the worst aspect of this city, as there is a large poor population. Downtown is not a safe place for anyone to walk alone after 10 pm. “Don't ever leave your bikes unlocked and get those heavy duty locks to be on the safe side.” the students say.
Cost of Living Rent in New Brunswick is expensive. Depending whether you want to live with others or by yourself, the price can vary dramatically. The large range is due to the stark differences between the quality and area of the apartment complex.
The weather here is just like any other Northeast city: cold winters (sometimes feels like it never ends) and hot/humid summers. However, spring and fall are usually very mild and allows you to experience nature's annual change of seasons. It's the best when winter is over and you notice a city-wide change in people's happiness level.
