Anyone know anything about Buena (Atlantic County), NJ? Other than the fact that it is pronounced BYOO-nah. We are looking at land in various towns, thinking of building a home. I've passed through Buena many times, but don't know much about the area. Just wondering if it is a pleasant place to live, generally speaking.

From what I remember there is not too much around and a slower pace of life. I believe the schools were having massive declines in enrollment due to kids moving on and not returning after college and starting their own families. Not sure what you are looking for but it is affordable area as far as NJ is concerned.

Agreed. There are actually some very nice areas of Vineland (as in, very nice homes), but I still wouldn't live there.

It's out in the middle of nowhere so it's a very quiet and slow area in itself, but ~20 minutes from a huge shopping mall with a bunch of restaurants both in the mall itself and in the surrounding area (including one I work at ), a college campus, a DMV inspection center, and ~35 minutes from OC or AC if you want to go to the beach/boardwalk or hit the casinos when they reopen.

I agree with the previous poster in regards to the more drabby parts of Vineland (and Millville, too.) Definitely wouldn't want to live out there, I'd prefer to be in Buena itself, or perhaps Mizpah.

Vineland only has high crime in the city area. Vineland is 69 square miles, most of it very safe. Much of it is beautiful farmland, some very expensive properties.

There are some very nice houses there, and a smattering of real stunners.

Buena is a nice area and its very quiet i had friends that lives out there i would visit and you can hear a pin drop. East Vineland is very nice and it feels like another world.

The only thing holding me back from going to look at this land is that it's Pinelands (I forget exactly which Pinelands Residential designation it has). My husband is adamant that we're not buying a Pinelands property because of the restrictions, particularly on how far away from the house the land can be cleared. If anyone has experience dealing with Pinelands approvals, I'd love to hear about it! I'm not mind-made-up like my hubby. LOL
