Absecon Reviews

24 reviews
All Categories
Housing in my town varies. There are houses, town houses, apartments, and hotels. The houses range from mansion-sized to one bedroom. Absecon is divided by a highway. The nicer houses are on the north side town, and the smaller houses, apartments and hotel residencies are on the south side. The only crime in Absecon is on the south side. There are not many vacant houses, only occasionally.
My town is pretty small, about 8,000 people total. The people are very cliquey and rude if you are not in their group. The people who live here the longest are the people who grew up here, usually their parents grew up here along with their parents. Most people have pets. There are parades for certain holidays and community fairs twice a year.
My side of town is safe, on the other side of town there is a lot of crime like prostitution and stealing. Police are usually on the scene relatively quickly. I would like street lights on my street, but there are none.
