"Going to Hell Quick, Fast, & in a hurry"

Going to Hell Quick, Fast, & in a hurry - 1/24/2012
0 1

I have lived in NJ all of my 40 years and am truly disappointed of the decline of living standards in the southern part of the state. Especially Cumberland County. I grew up when we could leave our windows open and feel the night breeze and if you fell asleep under the tree in your yard you weren't raped or robbed. At the very least for paying the highest property taxes and darn near highest car insurance in the nation one should at least expect to be able to read the paper without finding out that another senior citizen has gotten beaten up and robbed. This town, Bridgeton, is so small that I live in that if you blink while driving you pass right through it. Not a problem in my book. However, that darn small with so many police NO ONE should be getting attacked in broad daylight as if we were in Chicago or something. Granted there is crime everywhere in the world. It's just going to be so because sin does exist. I don't know what disgust me most the lack of feeling safe anymore, police officers arresting their own for selling drugs or police protecting their own. Everyone acting and pretending to be so busy and yet nothing getting done to my satisfaction. Why to my satisfaction because I am the taxpayer!! In every doctor's office there is a sign that says "payment due when service is rendered" well I have given payment so can I get some service rendered? There is absolutely nothing to do. So many sex offenders and inmates from the largest prison in the state being located here and staying once released will give you one thing to your back. Overpaying for absolutely no reason whatsoever.Relocating, relocating, and relocating!

Health - 9/12/2015

I live in Linden. Ilook at Sperling's reviews often. I like Linden.However how can Linden's air quality go from 24 to 92.2 in one year? Did they tear down the refineries and plant a hundred acres of trees? No. I would like to depend on the numbers with these reviews however no way is the air quality in Linden NJ the same as Boulder Co.

Neighboring states - - 11/16/2014

I disagree with the idea that NJ costs of living are on par with neighboring states. Overall, Pennsylvania offers a lower cost of living.

Property taxes - 11/2/2014

Although the cost of goods is probably on a par with neighboring states, property taxes and the cost of homes pushes the cost of living way up in New Jersey. You can get way more house and pay less taxes in just about any other place.

Education - 3/2/2013

Long Branch is the place for Education . They have the best schools. Especially for handicap children. The rent is high but its worth living there. As long as you keep to yourself. The beaches are beautiful and the houses are beautiful too. I can't wait to move back counting down the days.

Too expensive - 8/14/2012

Residents in New Jersey pay too much in taxes, too much in car insurance, too much for housing, and have no extra quality of living to show for it. I was born and raised in this state but I can't wait to get out.
