Trenton is the urban center of west-central NJ, serving Mercer County, plus parts of Hunterdon, Somerset, Monmouth, Burlington, and Bucks. For people who enjoy cities, it's really the only place to live in the area.

Trenton isn't fancy. But it is a small city of enormous diversity that rewards exploration both because of its rich history and dynamic present-day life.

Earlier generations of immigrants have left their mark: outstanding Italian eateries still survive in a Chambersburg neighborhood that is now predominantly Hispanic. While many other Italian restaurants have closed, Guatemalan, Mexican, West Indian, and Soul Food restaurants are opening to replace them. There is a vibrant central European community (predominantly Polish) in North Trenton, and many ethnic shops and restaurants. Five years ago, the Trenton Marriott opened its doors, providing high quality lodging.

Trenton is the capital of New Jersey, as well as the Mercer County Seat. [Government]. It is blessed with a variety of museums and entertainment venues providing cultural opportunities that belie Trenton's small size.

Many Mill Hill residents are raising their children here. We believe it provides a stimulating environment and healthy exposure to a diversity of races, classes, and life-styles. [See: Kids & City Life and Schools].
