Belford Reviews

2 reviews
Belford is a quaint small town located within the center of Middletown Township. It is close to both the Belford Ferry, and Academy Bus lines which many people take on their commute into Manhattan for work.
Belford is one of the safest areas within Monmouth County, as well as a beautiful place to raise children. The public school system is exceptional, people very friendly, and there is always some local happening on the weekends for children as well as adults. Beaches are only a 10 minute ride by car, and a bike trail encompasses the area as well for the health conscious. I feel it is a stroke of luck to have been fortunate enough to find this gem in the rough. Our children would surely agree.
Review Belford
Belford is a great town to live in. Great school system, but very high taxes and expensive homes. The ferries to NY are located here, which is a huge plus.
