Thanks, but I was actually very happy in Elizabeth. I lived in a good section and I loved the multi-ethnic urban feel of the place. But once the waves of illegals started pouring in, I knew it was time to go. But donít get me wrong, Iím not wealthy. I got a good deal on a townhouse here, and thatís the only reason I could buy in. Sometimes I do feel isolated, but the town is great, Iím close to NYC and like they say in real estate Ö itís all about location, location, location.

Here's my 2 cents.

Essex pros: West-essex area is a decent location IMO.
Essex cons: Newark, taxes-subsidization/issues, crime.

Bergen pros: Arena, Meadowlands, home of NY Giants.
Bergen cons: NYC's 6th boro, over-rated IMO, too costly.

Passaic pros: More affordable vs. nearby Bergen.
Passaic cons: Paterson, ground water pollution-Pompton.

Salem County is the best, hands down. For those asking or stating that there isn't anything worthwhile to visit in Salem County, well HELLO... that's what makes it the best place to live! It's quiet and out of the way, has tons of natural beauty, sprawling farmland and forests, charming colonial towns, is a stone's throw from tax-free shopping in DE, and best of all... it's the least populated county in the state.

Is it a good place for someone looking for lots of attractions (ie - distractions) of course not, although it is within reasonable distance from both Philly and the shore... but instead it's the perfect place for those looking to have a little piece of slow-paced perfection to call home without being so far away from everything else.

The worst? AFAIC... any county with a population greater than 200K... although Camden and Union counties probably top my list.

Warren County born & raised!! Basically the same as Sussex County, you have the lakes and mountains. Morris County is great for work, the salaries are much higher then Warren or Sussex

One difference...there's a cut-off age for sleeping with your parents in Warren.
