Hey Pony!

Not from the Stone Pony but from East Rutherford!

Thanks JerseyJ. I was at the Paramount in Asbury Park this weekend for the Light of Day benefit and Bruce came on stage and played for about 1:45. It was a wonderful evening and a great cause. I like going to shows and frequently go to Gaslight Anthem concerts and John Eddie concerts in Asbury Park. Thanks for the video. I will look forward to watching it in its entirety.

Hi all. It's been a while since I checked the boards but I wanted to say hello.

My husband and I bought a resale lot in SJP last summer right near the Players Club. We visited again back in October during the builders guild open house and will be back again in early February to meet with 3-4 builders that we liked and who have homes in our budget.

Bill Clark

I want to catch up on the last couple months worth of posts before I start asking too many questions but I wanted to say hello.

Thanks all!

Interesting reading (mostly in a good way).

Legacy Park: wow. Our sales guy gave us a really hard sell on LP. Really hard sell. In the end, we did not think the location was as fab as he did and, besides, who wants to live next to the fire station and the potential sirens at 3 am?

Membership fees: maybe because we ultimately purchased a resale lot, we never knew it was possible *not* to join. We were offered a 24 month payment plan which makes it manageable.

I love reading all the different perspectives on SJP, both positive and not so positive. We still think it's a good fit for us and we are looking forward to selecting a builder and continuing the process of relocating south.

Thanks all!

+1 on the live music. I currently volunteer at a concert venue here in northern Virginia and it's the one thing I will truly miss when we move south. It looks like Ziggy's gets some of the same acts I see around here which makes it promising.

We will be in St James for Easter this year. Does any of the clubs offer an Easter Dinner?

For those building in the area soon. I would talk to Southern Comfort. They have done an excellent job on my home. No large building process goes perfectly but they have been very attentive and have been responsive to every concern. I'll answer any question and provide details to those interested.

Hi -
We are in our early 50s and currently in the Boston area..thinking of relocating to the NC area after our sophomore heads to college. How many folks are still working full time at SJP? What would you say the 'average age' is for residents?
Thanks,
Karen

I know some people work for a paycheck, not sure what percentage. Quiet a few volunteer at various endeavors. Many are just enjoying retirement. I know of several that are pursuing art and crafts and other various "paying" skills they can do out of their home. One gentleman sets all the mail boxes in SJP, another does sewing and alterations in their home and so on. A few work from home as IT specialists and other computer related jobs. As you might imagine there are a lots of service jobs related to SJP including landscaping, golf courses, clubs, security and so on but residents are not hired for these.

Statistics on age can be found, I just remember that 50% of the population is over 65. Those under 18 are only 1 or 2 %. So about 48% of the population is between 18 and 65.
