Can the OP give us a link to the statistics that support his list, or is this one person's obviously mis-informed opinion??? If it's the latter, I'd be inclined to delete the post as being useless trolling.
I was thinking the same thing on this

It sounds to me,this poster has either not been to a lot of these towns recently or more than likely NEVER been to them

Thank you - I was born and raised in Union, NJ - It is not a bad place to live - and i think the list was created by someone's opinion, not based on fact

When was the last time you were in Paterson? It's gotten much worse the past few years.
