I have seen this are decline rapidly in the last 15 years. When we moved here in 2002 it was rated the safest town in the united states. Fast forward to today and it is night and day. The "animals" that have been pushed in to the area from Lakewood have just ruined the area and the schools are full of this trash. I left the city a long time ago looking for a better quality of life for my children but that reality has steadily declined. I would definitely look elsewhere when contemplating a move to the shore. Yes there are beautiful homes in the area but the trash is in abundance. Just take a trip to walmart on any given day and you will think you are in the heart of the ghetto. Better yet, drive through maple leaf and get a first hand look at the sh&t your children will be going to school with. Moral of the story is DONT move here it has gone to isht!

Brick Township is an amazing place to live, especially with a family! It is very safe and there are innumerable families around. Not to mention we have our own public beach and are right next to the famous Point Pleasant and Seaside. Great location with all four beautiful seasons. The public schools are pretty old but the education offered is pretty good. Overall Brick is a wonderful town.
The community of Brick Township is one big happy family. There's no other way to describe it! All residents in the area are always looking to get involved in community events and planning. People do anything they can to help out. In times of struggle, such as Hurrican Sandy everyone comes together, no matter how close they are with one another, it's simply how this community works. Brick is like no other town I have ever seen before. Everyone is always looking to make a difference and you are never bored here! There's always events going on around the town that residents can always take part in.
