Bridgeton Reviews

Bridgeton is a city in Cumberland County, New Jersey, in the United States. It's in the south part of the state, on the Cohansey Rivee near the Delaware Bay. It was really beautiful back in 1940. Over the years as busniness got closed down the city slowly but surely started going down. There still some historical sections around which helps golify the beauty which helps bring back the smiles. Some consider it to be country I consider it to be home.
Bridgeton has many pros and cons. They do have a very nice zoo, and splash park. There are some good restaurants to eat at in the surrounding areas. However, I would not want to be walking around the city at night. There are some very sketchy areas. I have mixed feelings about Bridgeton. I do like that it is very close to the shore, Delaware and Philadelphia.
I lived in this town for most of my life and it has changed alot in 20 years. Unfortunately crime has grown in the area. It's very diverse with people. There are small family owned businesses around the town. The park is beautiful and nothing is too far to reach in the town.
