I'll rate it neutral, meaning not the worst, not the best, just a place to stop and grab a quick bite. and btw, there were no Illegal aliens working in the kitchen (that's how you know you've reached the end of the world when white poo folks are working the kitchen) LOL

Didn't get a chance to go to Mansfield (son was tired) but you're right the home was in Port Murray right by the small bridge near the fire station. I wonder how it looks today.
I too was in Clinton yesterday!!! And Flemington. What a cute town Flemington is...crappy outlets but nice town. I think the BBQ place is called "The BBQ place" ..lol - I don't thing anyone knows the real name : )
The house in Port Murray...not bad - looks like a cheap job though - they went "blue"..and not a nice blue

I have lived in NJ for 20 years (first Burlington, then Camden, then Mercer). I know I really dislike Cumberland County and don't think much of Essex, Bergen, Hudson or Salem. Monmouth, Atlantic and Cape May are OK as far as I know; Ocean, Warren, Sussex, Middlesex and Hunterdon I am neutral about. Don't know enough about the others to comment.

That leaves Burlington, Camden and Mercer.

I guess I'll say Mercer because I live here. But I am really not a fan of New Jersey even though I am a resident. I really want to move away, but financially it does not make sense for me.

Oh Yes, last time we went by we saw the blue color, but they did a total reno on the kitchen, even did an addition on top of it and I know they replaced the tin siding that was there before and there was always a "pond" that formed by the side entrance. But if you went inside then you'll know why we called it the "Amityville" home

The house in Port Murray? We almost bought that home before we found this one, I just wanted to see what it turned out to be, it was a diamond in the rough, built in the 1850's it looked like the Amityville house and it was going for just 200k but it needed at least another 150k to 200k to bring it back to live.

I was looking at it as an investment..never actually went in - just saw it on mls. Had my eye on another one in Annandale...that was 400K which at the time was a steal for that area.
