Where are the low income whites in NJ? Which towns/cities are they? I'm talking about towns/cities that are over at least 60% white btw. Or does that not exist in new jersey? I have always wondered this.

Low income whites are spread throughout the state. But you're asking, more specifically, what towns would be considered to be low income and white. Hard to say, but off the top of my head, I'd say Kearny, Newton, Moonachie, and Clark.

Clark and Kenilworth are not low income, poor or whatever, no way. They do not know what they are talking about.

BTW, Clark is middle to high income.

Phillipsburg. A few other places in Warren/Sussex county i suppose. (but these are towns are not exclusively poor). there are not really many places that fit the criteria. The only place poor people really live in NJ is in the cities....

Maybe Sussex (per capita income $18,866) and Newton ($20,577) although Sussex County as a whole ranks 7th in the state on income. Phillipsburg in Warren County ($18,452).

True, but if you factor in the original question of poorest and whitest, Pennsville in Salem Co. might be a contender with a per capita income of 22,7000 and 96% white. Pennsville Township, New Jersey - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
