I posted this on the thread you made on the main NJ page:

As to your question, no not every town in Camden County is bad. Camden County also includes Cherry Hill, Haddonfield and Voorhees, all affluent upper middle class suburbs. There are also countless other great communities that span the socio-economic bracket.

When it comes to Pine Hill, it's not really a bad community, unless your priority is good schools. So, it is a safe decent town, a little out of the way from the main communities in Camden County. It's only real flaw is the school system, which is not nearly as good as a lot of other districts in the area. So, if you don't care about the schools, it's worth a look.

I wouldn't rush to live there. I've visited roughly 10 times on different days of the week during different hours. There are decent areas and there are not so great areas. I've also passed through the area 40-50 times and never saw anything that stood out to me as "move here".

But housing is affordable.

I think the best way to describe Pine Hill is blue collar. It's not bad, and I never felt unsafe there. I have 2 friends (gay couple) who own a home out there. They've been there for like 3 years and haven't had any trouble with anyone. So open minded blue collar town?

I agree very much so with the above answer, regarding it being blue collar.. It's by no means bad. And it's no where near Camden actually, as far from Camden in that county as you can get - it's practically Gloucester county.

We are looking at this area, too - Camden county not Pine Hill. From what I am finding, people seem to think that Camden itself is bad, but the County is very big so not all of it would be "bad". If I could tag onto your thread, a friend of mine who lived in NJ a while ago said she heard a lot of bad stuff about Cherry Hill. Is that true? Plus I guess it depends upon your definition of bad: are you talking crime rates, school ratings, poor goverment, inconsiderate people....?

There isn't much "bad" about Cherry Hill in anyones objective view. Low crime, great schools, solid property values, decent and responsive government. Probably the only bad may be some peoples attitudes (where isn't that an issue?), congestion and property taxes.

LOL, okay I am sorry about that. I honestly hadn't intended to post the same comment in three different threads.
