I live close to Hammonton (the most Italian of them all) and the only real criticism I have is that it can get a little cliquish. It's a nice town, I think the schools are decent, I know there's good Catholic Schools, there's a train that goes to A.C. and Philly as well as good access to the Expressway. It's safe, has a nice mainstreet, and seems to be doing fairly well. Cacia's is a pretty good bakery and there's Bagliani's (an Italian grocery store). It's surrounded by farmland and is located in the Pine Barrens. There are also several wineries nearby.

Just recently went to an Italian-American festival in Hamilton. In a county with a substantian Italian population, Hamilton has a strong community.

I am looking to move to North New Jersey. I'm originally from Los Angeles, CA, but go to law school in Baltimore, MD. I love L.A. in terms of the opportunity, culture, and the arts that it has to offer but I love the fact that the east coast is more traditional and down-to-earth. I would love to live in a place where I feel I could get the best of both worlds. I don't want to live in NYC because it's super expensive and too crowded but I would at least like to live within an hour of NYC and have access to it. I would like to live in a nice suburban I-A community where it is easy to meet people yet family-friendly.

(the person who posted that was a dumbass b/c he or she said New Jersey has ONLY 17% of people who are of italian descent.)

haha!
It is only 17% because the counties where the minorities constitute the majority (Essex, Passaic, Hudson, Union) have lower than 17% Italian-American populations. In most other counties it is more like 25% (at least in Morris it is) and in Ocean it is 27%.

Hanover Park Regional High School is the most Italian school hands down. The teachers, students, coaches, u name it are Italian. The hottest women alive went or go to Hanover Park. The most Italian boy I have ever met who went to Hanover Park is Frankie Tassielli.

Can't believe only one Monmouth County town on the list. Manalapan and Howell are definitely up there, and Jackson and Toms River in Ocean, lots of Italians in all of them.

There's an island i've read about. It's off the coast
of Italy and is close to a major world city. It has some great views, beaches and is just chock full of Italians. The locals call this magical place Ille du Statene.
