What's the point of this thread? All residents or former residents of NJ are well aware of the "ghettos" in the state.

Well yes, Warren County does have at least one!!!! But overall, our county is one of the lowest on the list of crime stats for NJ. Hence the reason I just don't get people coming in here an wanting information on one of the listed bad areas??? I'd rather live in a safe area..making less money..paying less money than choosing to live in on of those twps. - Towns - Cities. Especially if I had KIDS!

I disagree with Bayonne being on the downturn. On the contrary, it's getting better.
