Crime & Safety
It's a very small town. I like some of the restaurants here, d'italia and bellinis, also nora's deli is very good. It's a safe and a very friendly neighborhood with fairly low crime rate. I have been living here for more than 10 years and there were no major issues or problems. All major highways are less then 5 minutes away from here,ex. Rt1 and 9, parkway, and NJ turnpike. Also, middle school and high school are very nice.All in all I really like Avenel and would recommend it to other people.
Avenel is a suburb which is a part of Woodbridge Township. The schools are not great so I chose to put my daughter in private school. Our neighborhood is quiet and pretty safe. The town is built up; however, I would like to see more green grass and space opposed to so many buildings.
Employment in my area is not very satisfying. I worked at several stores in the malls around the area and all of them were slave jobs for what they paid! Work 6 hours a day and get paid $8 too deal with the nastiest coworkers and customers. I refuse to work in retail stores in this area until the pay wage balances or work out. However I have been told the restaurants and the employees of the restaurants are very nice and pleasant ,buffalo wild wings beings the best at guest relations and satisfaction
