I'm looking for a town with some history etc... Old homes that have, of couse been updated but still have the old world charm.
How far from SI do you want to be?? That will also factor in to your choices. If you already answered this, sorry I asked a redundant question.

Default Oh yesss...

I'd go for Manalaapan/Englishtown?Morganville area, too. Just remember these few tips, since you're a Staten Islander:

1) Make sure you have your huge Escalade/Navigator with you when you move here. If you drive anything else, you're not from Staten Eyewand.

2) Practice your kvetching (complaining). God forbid you have to wait in line at the grocery store.

3) If your husband works in the landscaping/construction business, that's a plus.

4) Make sure you research the nail salons and hair salons before you get here. All of their clientele are from the *ahem* South Shore of Staten Iwand.

5) Souped up cell phone? GPS system so you know in which direction to drive out of your driveway? Your husband's credit card that's reached it's limit? Idiot driving skills?

You're set, hon!

LOL, You decribed it perfectly! There they complain on line at the store, here a line is an excuse to have a conversation with a stranger.

Not when there are 10 out of 12 lanes that aren't open. Total reason for complaining!
