Hey, All! The Jersey realtor with whom I'm corresponding doesn't seem to get the "intangibles" I'm asking about, so I thought I'd ask here. Among Lower, Middle and Upper Townships, what's the basic difference in the vibes? Is one area more laid back than the other? More restrictive in property codes? (guess that's a tangible ) I'm just wondering if there's a discernible difference in overall attitudes. Anyone want to take a crack at this one? I'd be most appreciative.

No CMers can comment on this? Perhaps there really is no difference? I'm going to try and get down there, just for a couple of hours, this week and drive by a few of the homes in my budget:One in each township.

Lower has the Villas, considered by some a little on the low class side..but I like it...Of course you get
down to Cape May and that's a different story...North Cape May...To me a little to congested...Some
areas of Middle have a country feel to it....yet your close to Stone harbor and Court house, the hospital
ect....Very convenient in my opinion...Parts of upper like Marmora are close to Somers point and Ac....
Anyway its a wide area and depends on what you are looking for...and what you want to pay...I'll be
putting my house on the market soon ...If I sell, I'm sure I'll miss this area somewhat..but not the winter.

Upper, Lower, Middle, and Dennis are quite diverse. . . although it'd be tough to argue against upper. What are the towns?

Do you mean diverse within themselves or diverse from each other? I think the towns of Mamora, Seaville, Petersberg are in Upper. I didn't even know there was a Dennis Township Better get my map out before I go down on Wednesday. I'm only accustomed to zooming through all those off-shore towns to get to Cape May City.

They've always seemed pretty much the same to me. A mix of nice new homes and trailer parks, a lot of senior citizens, mostly very conservative politically but some pockets of liberalism here and there. What would you like to know more specifically? I am not sure I know these areas in the depth you need, but I'll try to help.

Thanks, Ocnjgirl. Hmmm....new homes and trailer parks. Interesting. Conservative is fine by me. Is there any area which seems rather neglected? Do people keep their pets nicely (stray dogs running the streets)? Would any of the townships be considered more middle class? On the whole do they seem more relaxed than the overcrowded burbs (from which I'm escaping)? I'm having some reservations on a couple of things, but perhaps I'll feel better when I tour the towns. I'll observe more when I'm down there this week when my Dobie girl will get her first look at the ocean . THANKS for your input.

None of the areas seem more neglected or more middle class, but again, the more rural parts are going to look much different than the areas with subdivisions, in any of the particular townships. Yes, all of them are more relaxed than the burbs. Keep us updated!

within themselves. in upper, for instance, there is quite a difference between strathmere, marmora, steelmantown. all nice towns but different.

The areas around Cape May court house are very nice...Nice homes, close to the beaches, also the
Delaware bay side is nice....Court House is a nice town...better then my home town in Gloucester county...
