Your posts are full of superlatives - either a place is heaven on earth or it's hell (at a county level, and everyone knows each county has postives and negatives). A place has everything or "I cannot imagine why someone would ever live there". I don't know how old you are, but you come across as young and someone who doesn't understand what families could be looking for.

Take this for what it's worth.
This thread is about counties in general.

I'm 25. And I know what I will be looking for for my family. And I learned from my experiences as a kid how unhealthy it is to grow up in a plastic environment. Take that for what it is worth.

How is Middlesex a taint of NJ counties? You want a taint of central-to-northern NJ counties take a look at Somerset. That's a taint IMO, is there even anything at all to do there? At all? And it is very expensive there for no good reasons, UNLIKE Monmouth.

Saying Middlesex is a taint of NJ counties makes me think you never heard of New Brunswick, Rutgers University, Johnson & Johnson and all the successful business in the area.

Hunterdon has some nice quaint areas though I will give you that. Lambertville serves as an extension of New Hope. And Stockton to a similar degree even though it does not directly border it.

I have homes in Hudson and Monmouth counties, love them both. I think every county has something to offer.

OK I would say that definitely. Moreover, I think beauty can be found in the most unusual places. I like this video to show that.

NORTHEAST Bergen County. 10 minutes into the city, 10 minutes to Route 17/4 shops, but far enough where you can enjoy privacy due to lot size/building restrictions compared to the rest of BC.

Con is that small homes start at $1mm. I find you can get a lot more house in any other county in the state.

Nexis many people with husband and spouse working both working have a shore or mountain house. I did for about 15 years.And no you don't have to be a millionaire to swing that as long as u work hard and control your finances.

I can't see myself living anywhere in NJ outside of Bergen, Hudson, Essex or Passaic.
