No, Edison does not belong on a list of bad/unsafe towns.
Does that town have very bad traffic congestion?
Yes!
Is the Edison police department thoroughly corrupt?
Absolutely!
Are their property taxes high?
Without question!
However, Edison is as safe--if not safer--than most suburban areas of NJ.

He's getting you to engage. Deny him!

Plainfield - depends on what part, and it's not exactly bad, just poor.

Alpha listing is useless. List according to crime rate to make useful comparison. Important to see how the stats are compiled as media and towns do their best to select a stat analysis model that makes their town or state look batter than it is .


Drug, gang problems, school crime tend to be favorably contrived. Also a great help to any democrat politician seeking stardom in the evolution of their political career.

The reason why I listed them alphabetically is because I am not familiar with most of them.

Are all of them true?
If not, then which one/s is/are not true?
Many of these towns have very nice areas as well with just small city type areas that are bad. There are gorgeous houses in Vineland in Millville and beautiful country out there. There are a lot of wealthy farm families in those areas. The downtown areas are bad but overall they are safe places to live. Same thing with Wildwood. The bad area’s are clustered together but there are many multi million dollar homes and condos there too. Hundreds of thousands of people pay thousands of dollars a week vacation in Wildwood and nothing ever happens to them. It’s a perfectly safe place to vacation or to live.

I would say the same thing about Woodbury. There are some very very very wealthy people in Woodbury and old money mansions that are worth millions and go back over 100 years. Yes there are bad areas in Woodbury but overall the town is not an unsafe place to live. The sections of Lindenwald where the apartment complexes are is bad but they’re also suburban developments that are fine. Pleasantville I wouldn’t want to live in, but I worked there for several years and there’s no danger in going there and there are okay sections too.

I can’t speak for any of the central or North Jersey town because I don’t know them, but the only one on that list that I would not want to live in under any circumstances and wouldn’t drive through by myself is Camden. The others are pretty much towns with a mix of wealth and poverty as well as working families. As long as you’re not buying a home and one of the bad sections of those towns you’ll be fine.

Not familiar with most of Jersey, only the part that’s by Philly; born and lived there my whole life, however you should add Salem and Paulsboro to this list. Been to both of those towns only once and they looked pretty sketchy to me.

I’m not listing the towns according to their outer appearances, I’m listing the towns according to their crime rate.

I’m not really familiar with most of these urban towns and I’ve never heard anyone mention those towns before anyways.
