Because Trenton has a close proximity to Manhattan, you do find that there are several people living here that commute all the way into various parts of the big city to work, which can limit the availability of apartments. However, November seems to be an optimum time to look for apartments in the area.
Like all apartments that connect somehow to the area around the Big Apple, Trenton landlords can be tough. However, they're probably not quite as tough as those in the heart of the big city, which is why some people may choose to live out here instead. Just be sure to be professional and polite when you meet with them, as they're on the lookout for people who can't get approved for places in the city,
Trenton is very well connected with public transportation. If you just need to travel around the immediate area, you can ride the local busses operated by New Jersey transit. If you need to travel into New York, you can get on the NJ Transit Northeast Corridor rail line and ride the train into New York. There is also another train line that connects the city to Philadelphia.
To see some of the revolutionary history of the area, visit the Trenton Barracks, where George Washington's troops stayed during the war. If you prefer nature to history, go fishing on the Delaware River. For dining out, the best food in town is found in Chambersberg, where you will find a great selection of Italian restaurants.
