^ I llive in Vineland. Most people do not send their kids to private school, but there are a significant amount that do (I myself went to Catholic school for 12 years and at one time we had 3 catholic elementary schools, now we have only 2) The schools aren't bad, and most of Vineland is a decent place to live. The only place to avoid is the Center City area. East Vineland is very posh, and at times I think it can be a little bit snobbish. The only problems with Vineland, are that people will either assume it's all ghettoish like center city, or all farmland like the rest of Vineland and that there's a vocal group of people against doing anything to improve our town.

I used to work at a certain large trucking congomerate with blue trucks that is based in Vineland. You are very correct that it is pretty decent to even nice once you get out of the downtown area. I should mention that my private school information came mostly from co-workers that lived in Vineland. It seemed to me that everyone who worked there that actually lived in Vineland lived in East Vineland and the kids universally went to private school. It also seemed that most people in East Vineland also had a pretty poor opinion of the rest of the town.

I don't know how people can live in Paulsboro. I had a track meet there and I thought I was going to cough up a lung during the race. I guess the people that live there are used to it. Talk about a home field advantage...

Word...I played football against Paulsboro and there was nothing like standing on the field staring at the glow of the refinery and the belching smoke. A kid on the team with asthma which never bothered him was sidelined by halftime.

I think I know, I'm going to assume the building is on the corner and currently has a piece of weird looking modern art in-front. I'm not surprised those people said that, East Vineland people tend to be that way. The only problem with the schools is that you might get into a fight/beaten up etc. overall, they're fine and I wouldn't worry.

When it comes to weird looking modern art, you have no idea. The owner's wife has quite the fetish.

Default paulsboro

some time ago i wrote the paulsboro theme song check out www.paulsboromusicvideo.com, one of the original lines of the song was let a town without sin cast the first stone, i was hounded over this because it was to negative, so i changed it to well it's our pride that we can't hide where? inPaulsboro.
point: something you don't like about Paulsboro, go to the boro meetings, that's your right, bring your complaint before the governing body, and be persistent about it. you want change, not going to get the change by tearing the town down on the internet.
