Really? Elizabeth?
I am very familiar with Elizabeth. It's not as bad as people say, but I would also NEVER put it in this thread.
I respect your opinion but am a bit confused.

Why did you choose this one?
I do have to say, alot of culture.

Default Southern Monmouth

Any home magazine will say that Southern Monmouth County is one of the best places to live in the United States, very great schools, low crime, low taxes, beach, great neighborhood and small town feeling. Good Towns: Manasquan Sea Girt Spring Lake Spring Lake Heights(cheaper than spring lake) Wall Brick Point Pleasant Pointy Pleasant Beach Belmar Howell Fair Have Tinton Falls Shrewsbury Rumson Monmouth Beach Sea Bright Deal Avon-By-The-Sea CHatham, Ridgewood, Short Hills, Bernardsville, Millburn Stay away from Asbury Park, Neptune, Red Bank, Keansburg, Keyport, Hazlet, Long Branch, Freehold, and Lakewood

Default Hasbrouck Heights

Try Hasbrouck Heights in Bergen County! Madison Avenue is the nicest street! Commuting Distance to NYC! 10 minutes or less by car, 15 minutes by bus, close to trains, subway, and ferries! Great schools, Lincoln Elementary School won governor's award of excellence! Great sports, and close community feeling!

I love when people say, "Elizabeth's really not that bad."

Okay, as compared to what ... Bronx, Camden, Newark.

Well, if you're setting your sights that low, then, no, I guess it really isn't that bad.

Elizabeth defenitly does have shady areas, I put it in the same realm as Jersey City. Where its bad and has tons of crime but has some redeeming areas . Also the Bronx really kinda fits in there too cause it does have some real nice areas too, if you avoid the south and western areas . As for Newark and Camden they need a lot more help.
