correct me if I am wrong, but another good category to capture are these towns that are actually on the "upturn" and going from bad to good (i.e. like Long Branch that is listed in your category 3). don't ya think? this way we can see where the possible long term investment areas may be / gentrification areas, etc. You been to the new Long Branch beach boardwalk / village? it's gorgeous.

oh new brunswick meets that criteria too. sure it has its "bad" sections, but most of it (downtown, near river, rutgers) is fine. don't scare people off!

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.
Bob, I have to agree with you. This person doesn't even know where Old Bridge is. My son lives off Rt 18 in Old Bridge. He is fairly close to the East Brunswick Border and is no where near Iselin.

Out of state troll again responsible for this thread. He has probably never lived in NJ. I just don't get it. Most trolls live in the state they post in don't they?

There are too many trolls on this forum; this is part of the reason why I don't post here all that often.

Paterson has more murders than Irvington, Trenton and East Orange? That's laughable.

Teaneck????????????????????
Wow, I don't even know what to say. Teaneck is a fine, fine town.
If by "bad" you mean brown people that own their homes, maintain their properties & send their kids to school, than, yes.
Teaneck is very, very diverse.
Go to Votee park in the summer & see Jews, African Americans, Hispanics, Indians & various other sorts using the public areas in peace & tell me Teaneck is dangerous.
I can't believe what you just said.
Teaneck is a Bergen County shining star in my humble opinion. A very good standard of living, with interaction not seen in some of the islolated, ultra rich communities to the north.
Teaneck the same as South Orange??? Yea right!!!!
It is a great place to raise a child in an environment that is inclusive & creates worldly individuals.

Most of towns on the list have their good parts and their bad parts. The vast majority are made up primarily of good people that make honest livings, want the best for their kids, and love their communities. Lists like these really take away from these towns and the people that live in them.
