Interesting post considering I was thinking of residing at The Arbors at Raintree in Freehold on Wemock Road. My 4 year old and I will be moving to the area and need to feel safe. Hubby will be stationed in NYC at JFK and I will be working at Fort Monmouth; however, son will be attending Earle Naval Child Development Center (have slots available, Ft Monmouth doesn't).

Is this part of Freehold not safe? I am not familiar (yet) with Freehold, West Freehold and Freehold Boro.

I appreciate any information that is provided.

Thanks!

That area is Freehold Township. Raintree is a good choice as its kind of quiet there. Its right by the Moter vehicles office and inspection station. Its not too far to Rt 18 where you can drive to the shore.

We really don't care about the ethnicity of the people as long as they are family oriented and good neighbors. To me the fact that the homes are so well kept it's a sign they will be good neighbors. I have been driving through the Boro going on 4 years now and I feel like the area is getting nicer in terms of rennovations and new restaurants & stores. Is that the case?

Does anyone take the Academy bus to Wall Street? Is it reliable?
Sorry for th e 20 questions. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
In 2008, most of Monmouth County is lifeless suburban sprawl. Freehold Boro is a breath of fresh air in a county of minimalls and parking lots.

Raintree is nice, and has some amenities in this gated community.

I live in the boro. It's a diverse town, with some really nice old homes, and some places that are not too nice. It's a neighborhood by neighboorhood decision to make when looking in the borough, in my experience. But you have decent affordable homes, and also some really nice old Victorians. It has a downtown, which many towns in this area do not have.

There have been a lot of posts on this board bad-mouthing the borough. Let's say, the borough has a reputation. People can argue over whether that reputation is warrented, and what the future of the Borough of Freehold may hold. (You are looking at Raintree in the Township to live - there is also another town, Upper Freehold. Names like "East Freehold" and "West Freehold" are areas - more or less descriptions, not towns in themselves. When you think of Freehold - the boro is a donut hole, the township is the donut that completely surrounds the boro).

JFK is a hike from here... Traffic is a concern if your husband is driving, and it also depends on the times that he will be commuting. You will have it easy in comparison, travel to Fort Monmouth can be a pleasant ride.

I moved to Raintree when I was 4 years old. I am now 19 years old. It was a wonderful place to grow up- very quiet, lots of old people, beautiful landscaping, pool, tennis courts, basketball courts. Freehold Township High School gave me an excellent education. DO NOT GO TO THE BORO. It has been going downhill for years at an alarming pace. If anyone here reads the Asbury Park Press and looks in the "police briefs" section, then they will see that every other day there is some Mexican druggie being arrested in the Boro. The Boro is overrun with them, and pretty soon they will all take over.
