So does Wayne and Mahwah.

Doesnt make them poor really. Believe it or not, they have to pay like $700 a month just to rent a lot at one of those places. Its mostly old people who live in the trailer parks.

The trailer parks in those places are nothing like the trailer parks in other parts of the country

LOL. I didn't get your post at first. I was wondering where all the poor people in Essex Fells and LBI were living.

I live in Vineland, it's 67.47% white. Most of the poor and working class in Vineland are Puerto Rican. Also, most of the town is not like center city Vineland, it's not all just one ghetto, in fact it's mostly farmland and suburb.

I'm shocked no one's mentioned Gloucester City. Lots of towns in SoJers, most of your "white" towns in Cumberland and Salem counties. Most of your agrarian parts of Jersey have a lot of poor whites.

Where you're trying to get at doesn't match up. Moonachie and Rahway are completely different towns compared to the wealthy towns of Wayne and Mahwah. Rahway and Moonachie are blue collar towns as it is, so a trailer park in those towns are definitely for people who are on a lower budget.

How many towns in NJ that are 60%+ white could you consider poor?.. (barely any, it's NJ).. but there's plenty of towns that average below the states median income.

Instead of nit-picking people, how about you guys come up with a a better list of towns..

It seems to me they live amongst the rest of us. I've known poor white people who live in Wyckoff, Midland Park and Ridgewood.

I grew up in Moonachie and the trailer parks are a mix of older people and lower income people. If you were looking for a trailer you could live on the cheaper side in Moonachie. If you were going to buy a house it is not a "cheap" place to live. The houses are on the otherside of town from the trailer homes and average around $400K. The average income for Mooachie is lowered because of the Trailer parks and it is still about $65K

Avenel, Port Reading, Carteret, Keasby, Sewaren, South Amboy, Sayreville, Keyport, Keansburg, Lawrence Harbor, Hazlet, Matawan, South River, Jamesburg, Helmetta, Dayton, and a multitude of others I have probably missed. All these towns can be considered Blue Collar/White/Low Income.
