Do you really want all the meth labs and heroin depots shutdown?

Asbury Park has been on the upswing for about a decade or more and the entire area keeps getting better. Similar in Long branch and communities between these two. Just today I saw about 4 or 5 tall multistory cranes at various new sites between these 2 sites.

You need to check it out just to see if you feel "at home" around these communities yourself. Of course as in many NJ towns there are various parts of towns, various ages of housing, etc.

Asbury Park is still one of the most dangerous cities in America (more dangerous then Newark, Camden or Paterson). Was just down there and unless you're a hipster or gay, no reason to buy, unless you want to become a victim of rape, murder or theft.

Nope don't by it for a min. Yes Asbury has it's crime and without a doubt there are bad parts that have serious crime but to try and sell me it's worse than Newark or Camden...Camden,no.

asbury park has become a popular place for my contemporaries to hang out. so i have been there a few times. i always complain about the parking but ultimately always have a good time (really thanks to friends not the area). we have done lunch at cubacan a couple of times for mother's day. when we walk to the boardwalk i always say that it looks like pier village in long branch after the apocalypse. im not a fan. i think the prices in more desirable locations are already high and any deals will come with an undesirable spot. i wouldnt recommend living there to pretty much anyone.

agree- If you were looking for gentrification possibilities I'd stick to Long Branch- think that will be the one that pops much sooner.....or Highlands over by the ferry fit's out of a flood zone or built to new codes/standards.

Couldn't this be a case where the crime rate is inflated because during the summer you have a lot of tourists flocking in, and so you have more crime, but because the year-round residents number is still low, it gets skewed? Similar thing with Atlantic City.
