Princeton is so vastly spread out. Every town or community has it's best places. Most is beautiful. Where did Bob Denver live? The most populated is in the down town area, just where downtown is best. Most seem to prefer out toward the Mall. Just where is the elite area?

Call the State Police tell them where your thinking of moving they will let you know about the area. They will not sugar coat it at all, which is what you want.

Eades Mill Road is nice. Old Oakvale Road is ok, if you can find property there. Gilligan, Bob Denver lived in Popular Grove. That's a nice area. City View Hgts, Quail Valley, Pisgah Road, I could go on and on.

Quail Valley, Boulder park Morningside are nice but have many property restrictions and some of the houses are reasonable. Good places to live. City View Hts is and older neighborhood and quiet ... no neighborhood association or dues to pay and a couple of homes for sale up there....possibly a few more going up.

i conducted extensive research on this topic and i would suggest stumpy bottom, high street, or lilly edition...any one of the three would prove to be a stellar environment for the socially elite.:)

On a serious note, Okland Terrace, Hickory Hills, and Lilac Hills are all great subdivisions in Glenwood, which is right outside of Princeton. Quail Valley and Boulder Park in Princeton are great as well.

The way I done it was I bought a police scanner and it took about 7 years listening to it . I then found one good neighborhood. I have 2 houses but was robed at one of them, but the thief isn't robing any more houses,, so it takes the people to make the neighborhood a good place to live,, We have a great place, But as I said when the realtors told me of ahouse i told them of the problems, and they was amazed at how accurate I was, So I would explaine myself.
You can buy a house and if you're not into the bad things, then the bad might mess with you once, but then that leaves the door open for you to clean up the neighborhood,, And some they listed isn't as good as they say,, some of those places has had thiefs and vandles in them, and it is kept quiet because it is a high dollar neighborhood., So don't go with the recomendations,, find a house you like, and ask around, and talk to teh neighbors on both sides, and drive by it during the day, and drive by it during the nights especially on the high traffic days like the first , third, fifteenth, and actually park in the drive way,, tell teh realtors you plan to do that so if the police is called the realtors can back you up.
I did all the above plus, my police scanner, and thats how I found my house..Thats the best I can tell ya on it...Oh And neighborhood watches is a Joke,,,..Have your own system like wireless cams that way they cant steel the recorder because they dont know where its at...

for those of you interested in a compact community setting, i have a few more recommendations... the princeton village apartments, fox ridge apartments, and that tiny treasure of a trailer park tucked snugly behind my favorite street, washington avenue.:) one should consider the safety of those areas as the police surveillance is 24 hour. if one has a pending drug addiction, suppliers are merely a hop skip and jump away from your front door. convenient? i'd say, yes.:)i'm also certain that each of these neighborhoods has their very own playground...that's right...a child drop off spot...abductors are welcome! the finest attribute of those playgrounds is of course, the ever available supply of dirty syringes for the kiddies...it's never too early to pick up christmas presents for mommy and daddy!:)

Don't Laugh but there is a nice subdivisin behind southern exposure...some trailers at front but it starts getting really nice when you go back in there.
There is alot of nice places to live in Princeton. Prob the best thing to do is make a day of it and drive around.

There are a few newer subdivisions depending on what you want and how much you are willing to pay. On ambrose lane there is Country Fields, it is nice, quiet, small and beautiful there. And then you have Misty Hills which is fairly new but beautiful, not many houses but room for alot more, but the price tag is pretty expensive now, heard they were a little cheaper when it first got developed.

If you want to invest in something that will hold it's value, I'd recommend something off of the Rt. 20/New Hope Road area near Quail Valley and the hospital. Quail Valley, Shenandoah Estates, The Ridge, Ironwood Fells, Sandstone Park & Rolling Hills are all in this vicinity. It's close to downtown, near the hospital and is in a good school district. Longterm, I don't think you can go wrong with this end of town.
