Setting & Lifestyle
In addition, Warren is home to many people who could be described as "urban sophisticates", which are people who are not only wealthy and employed in professional occupations, but highly educated to boot. Urban sophisticates have urbane tastes - whether they reside in a big or small city, a suburb, or a little town. Urban sophisticates support bookstores, quality clothing stores, enjoy luxury travel, and in big cities, they are truly the patrons of the arts, attending and supporting institutions such as opera, symphony, ballet, and theatre.

The town’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic values. With regard to real estate, Warren has a high rate of owner-occupied single family homes, which tends to reflect stability in the local community. Finally, Warren’s overall crime rate ranks among the lowest in the country, making it one of the safest places to raise a family.
The town is relatively quiet, having a combination of lower population density and few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy.

If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
One downside of living in Warren, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 35.67 minutes every day commuting to work.
