Brick is the Safest BIg Town

"This small city near the Jersey shore recorded the lowest rate of violent crime of any town of 75,000 residents or more, according to Morgan Quitno Press, an independent research publisher in Lawrence, Kansas, which used FBI statistics in its analysis. "

I heard Brick and Wall are going to merge into one municipality. Guess what it'll be called??

I find these statistics hard to believe. Even if they are true, Brick is very overcrowded and very overpriced. I don't see anything appealing about Brick. There are other towns in Ocean Co. which are nicer.

Brick is a white-trash haven, you couldn't pay me to live there.

For 20 years my in-laws have lived in one of the senior developments in Brick. They moved there from Brooklyn and have been happy. (Many Brick residents are from the Boroughs and think they're living in the country). However, you couldn't pay me to live there (or anywhere in Jersey except maybe Avalon or Cape May). It's all track housing and strip malls.

As a life-long Jersey resident I am continuously amazed that as often as the place is bashed,it seems like the entire population of Brooklyn, Staten Island, and Lawnguyland falls over themselves to live here.

My brother sometimes relates a story about his one time new neighbors from Staten island. After "hi, we're your new neighbors" the next thing out of their mouths was "are you italian?"

I am a native of Staten Island and a current resident of the Jersey Shore- I have been here for several years.Staten Island for many years was just like the way NJ was -lots of open space and farms. The old time islanders had more in common with NJ than NYC-geographically we were connected by three bridges.People were friendly and respectful. After the VN bridge opened the Brooklynites stormed into SI and eventually NJ.They are a different class of people than old time Staten Islanders-have their own culture and attitudes. I don't like the identification of people from Brooklyn being Staten Islanders-they're not.

One more thing. I am also Italian- American and would never greet my new neighbors by asking them if they're Italian. I would not ask about someone's ethnicity or religion.

Hey there, as someone who grew up on the Jersey Shore and lives on the west coast, I would love someone to be so frank about my ethnicity. Yo what's uP? You italian? Oh, I miss it.
