My son just got a job in south Jersey. It's actually closer to Delaware than anywhere in NJ. He graduates from college next week, and we have to find him an apartment pretty quickly. Are there any areas just over the DMB that have a decent amount of 22-30 year old young professionals? If you know of a good apartment complex, that would be great.
Thanks

Trolley Square is about 10 minutes from the bridge - try searching that. His area of New Jersey is barren - I feel bad for young people who live there. You might want to try the Rowan Campus at Glassboro, but that's really a younger crowd.

Thanks for replying! I've heard mixed reviews of Wilmington. Is the Trolley Square area safe? Are there any other towns near the bridge that he should look at? I guess he could always stay in Newark (he's graduating from UDel).

I agree with Joe, but if he's got a lease through the summer in Newark, it's within commuting distance. My FIL used to do it to Pennsville from Newark daily.

The area just over the bridge is sketchy. Trolley Square is safe and might offer a bit more of a "grown up" lifestyle vs. staying in Newark as a graduate.

I know you're his mom, but I'm curious: Where does he want to live?

He has no idea. He's going to drive around this week and look at some areas. I wanted to give him a couple of places to check so he's not wandering aimlessly. Do you know anything about the Korman Properties?

^^^ As a college graduate, it might be an appropriate time to let him start to figure out how to manage some of the basic decisions in life, like finding a home. Even if he makes a mistake, no rental arrangement is permanent and it would be an opportunity for him to learn.

I hope you'll take my post in the right way. I realize there may be something about his situation I don't understand, so take this advice for what it's worth.
