Hi Nicejohn2 - I'm looking for a job and an apartment in the Red Bank, Long Brach, Atlantic Highlands area. I just spent the last 8 years in Aspen so I'm all about the scenery (as far as apartments go). Do you have any suggestions? I need all the help I can get. It's kind of scary starting over again! Thanks.

I love Atlantic Highlands. If I didn't have kids and thus no need to worry about the quality of the public school, I'd move there in a heartbeat.

sorry but I beg to differ, if you check out the state report cards you'll see the school performs poorly, especially in math.
great town, poor schools

nj sue said what you did - she has kids therefore is concerned about the schools which is why she's NOT in AH.

yup, I misread her comment but we agree the schools are not where they should be.
I've live in AH for a long time and had to send my kids to private schools. The main problem is apathy and ignorance from many people in town, they just refuse to accept that their schools are weak and fight any attempts to make the schools perform better

Default Atl Highlands

You will definitely like the easy commute. However, you'll be looking for a new town to live if there are children in your future. Drive 10 minutes to Red Bank for good food, nightlife, etc. There are some great restaurants in your hood...Julias, Copper Canyon, Doris & Ed's. Or, skip down the beach south a few minutes to Yumi or for some fun at Pier Village.
I dig the little theater in AH. Park right in front of the door....hardly anyone in there. Go to an afternoon matinee for half price. Ha.

Default I miss Atlantic Highlands

I grew up there. True on the schools though....especially the math comment. I still can't do algebra and I'm 43 years old, .

We are moving back to the east coast as soon as our house sells here in California. Sadly, we can not move back to NJ (TAXES) so we will be in PA.

Have fun!
