    Hello, I currently live in madison. For job aspects, it depends what field your job is in. The people of Madison are amazing. They're nice and many greet you in the streets. I have many african-american friends that live in madison and the race relations are wonderful. The weather can get cold in the winter, it's currently freezing here lol but it doesn't last that long and in the summer, it can get into vegas weather. Depending on where you live, many people don't need a car, the city has many bus services. At first of course, it will feel weird living in a new state and moving to a compleatly different location.

    I accept as true with the previous answerer 2n2222 or regardless of. I lived in Madison for the duration of portion of the 70s and 80s and have on account that visited there often. it relatively is a incredible place to stay with stable race family. You do desire a automobile, nonetheless. in any different case, you're certain to experience claustrophobic after a whilst.

    You absolutely need a car to live there

    Madison was rabked as one of the top 100 places to live in the US in 2003

    I don't know much about the dating scene

    There do not seem to be any racial tensions beyond the occassional redneck you would have anywhere

    All in all a good place to live

    It all depends on how much the job is going to pay. You can worry about the social environment down the road. If the job is going to put a lot more money in your pocket, and you have no direct reason to stay in NJ...then I would move

    It's got to be very cold. If it's small town, you might experience cultural shock. I got that when I went to the south, I'm from NJ also.
