They don't bother you since you aren't affected by them. You sound really dumb. Drugs bring crime and crime lowers property values and changes the area making it a less desirable area to live in aka the bayshore towns. You have way more insane ignorance than her. It's a common fact that heroin addicts steal and vandalize property such as breaking into homes just to steal/cut copper pipes for spare charge to support their drug habit.

To the OP, you should look into towns in Monmouth County. Marlboro, Freehold, Colts Neck etc. You will be very happy there and only 20 minutes from the beach. Great schools, great community, close to great shopping, restaurants, NYC transportation. I wouldn't buy in Ocean County unless it's just a seasonal summer home.

Very pretentious, superficial, keeping-up-with-the-Joneses towns. If the OP is not looking to move to a rat-race infested area full of displaced low-lives from the south shore of Staten Island, they should steer clear of these towns. The whole area is a cluster****.

The OP is from the Toms River area, if they must be in Monmouth they should focus on probably Ocean Twp (Oakhurst/Wanamassa) or Tinton Falls. In that order.

There's actually a lot of educated, sophisticated and classy professionals in those family friendly towns. Not everyone from there is from Staten Island. Just because someone has money/works hard and can enjoy the finer things in life doesn't mean they are "keeping up with the joneses" Most people take great care of themselves and enjoy having nice things for themselves to enjoy and not to please or compete with others. If OP wants to be more south than Wall or Howell are also great towns to look into as well with great neighborhoods.

There are a lot of educated, classy professionals in many other areas without the low-ife Staten Island elements too. Marlboro, Manalapan and Colts Neck are much more "glorified white trash" or "trashy flash" than they are "classy upscale". Guess what? There are probably some educated classy professionals in Brick and Toms River too. In fact I am well acquainted with many school teachers who live in those towns. Including some who taught in Manalapan for one, only to leave the teaching profession due to the student culture and how bad it has gotten.

Most of them do not work hard or earn that much money. The homes - full of empty rooms with no furniture - are still underwater and will never again hit the pre-crash values in 2008 since it was bubble and not going to sustain. Most there that do have boatloads of money probably won a lawsuit of some sort. Really like no other place I have ever been. Very spread out, soulless, desolate and outright boring with those big ugly new houses. The traffic is also horrendous, it has completely outgrown the roads since they keep building and you have the same narrow two-lane country roads that were there 60 years ago.

The pre-crash housing values of 2008 affected the entire real estate market as a whole and not just certain areas, that's an entire different topic. However, since your speaking about trashy people, there's way more trashy parts and lower income earners in parts of brick and Toms River and way more true low lifes there then anywhere else. If you consider people who reside in wealthy safe and desirable monmouth county towns as "White-trash" obviously they aren't low class enough to be able to afford to live there. You sound very envious and the jealous type. That is extremely rude to say that people in Monmouth County towns do not work hard as most people who live there work in the medical field and other professions that categorize as essential workers. If they didn't work hard the median household incomes in those Monmouth County towns wouldn't be so high. You seem to lack a lot of knowledge about those areas and surrounding towns. If you never lived there before then your input is irrelevant. There's way more traffic in Brick and Tom's River since those area became very congested in recent years since it's so much more affordable to live there for a reason and less desirable in my eyes.

The only white trash areas in Monmouth county are Keansburg, North Middletown/West Keansburg, and certain parts of Neptune. Are people honestly suggesting that Marlboro, Freehold, and Colts Neck are made up of white trash types? I used to live in Colts Neck and people of all races there are highly-educated and friendly. Quite honestly Colts Neck didn't have very much Staten Island transplants; most of those people moved to Marlboro/Manalapan. I can see how many italian Staten Island transplants are short-tempered, impatient, and snobby, but that's far from trashy. The average household income for all of the aforementioned towns is $150k and above and many homes are worth over $1.0M, I'm not sure how a "trashy" person could afford to live there. It's obvious that Ocean County has more "trashy" areas than Monmouth.

you are generalizing and have no right to do that. most people who use drugs dont commit crimes. in any case, you have no need to focus on drugs, just focus on the crimes. its funny how people will bring up "x place has a big drug issue" because they feel its surprising to people. well, if you think its surprising to people then it probably means that they dont perceive much of an impact from the drug usage.

btw, do you have any statistics on your "common fact" regarding drug use and crimes? i have a feeling that you have absolutely no numbers to back up your "common fact."
