    The town itself is small and residential consisting of middle class citizens. However, because of it's location there is easy acess to a variety of activities that make the Jersey shore so popular.
    There is not much visibility of crimes, but the police do a good job taking care of problems when they come up.
    The Stone Fire Grill is a great local restaurant! They have the best wings and many other delicious food choices!
