Hi,
does anyone know what kind of an area maplewood nj is? Specifically on boyden ave, I have an interview there just curious if it's a good area or not, not living there just safe to drive to and park. I drove there yesterday to look at the interview location and saw two ladies start fighting in the street!

don't see a problem with working there (unless one wants to avoid venturing out of the sleepiest of sleepy suburbia). I know people who work in Newark and live to tell the tale. You probably have a higher than usual car theft rate that close to the Irvington border, but it's hardly gang banger central.

I hear that Maplewood is a really nice town, and I am actually looking for a nice 2 bedroom apartment for rent there. Anyone know of any nice apt. complexes or neighborhoods where I should focus in on? I prefer a "park-like" complex, but I wouldn't mind a well kept apt building either. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

Lets get one thing straight here Irvington is bad , we all agree on that , but Newark is not as bad as it used to be. A huge chunk of the city is average, only the area that borders Irvington is really bad.

Exactly! Maplewood used to be really nice. It's still okay, but it's not what it used to be.

A friend of mine who grew up in the ghetto in Newark sold her house in Maplewood two years ago and moved to Monmouth County. She has kids in school, including a son who was starting high school at the time, and she felt that the Newark element was moving in. She wanted to keep her kids away from that.

Now I see some people on here who seem to think it's a nice town. I don't know the town personally, just passing along that story.

Maplewood is pretty nice but the closer you are to Newark/Irvington the worse it is. The top of Maplewood is nice though.
