I have lived in Bridgeton my whole life. The high school could be better, just as the town overall could be, but that being said, even with the rough edges, it feels like a home to all that welcome it. There's not many activities to do in town beside skate 2000 and maybe go to the almish market, everything else requires a car. But its a very familiar comfy place, where you can just ride your bike or play soccer at the fields, or just drive around town with your friends. Sure there are dangers, but I've never experienced any myself. Even though I plan to move away to somewhere slightly bigger and better someday, its actually not so bad a place to grow up in.

I currently reside in Bridgeton New Jersey. I love the attributes of the old time country setting. Bridgeton has townships, one of which is Hopewell. It is a beautiful township with shade tree roads and the smell of fresh cut grass. I would recommend anyone to come and visit this historic town. Its school, Hopewell Township, is rated one of the most advanced in grading. The streets and roads are safe to walk or ride a bike. Bridgeton is family friendly. If you are looking to buy a home, Hopewell would be an ideal place to settle down. Prices of home property taxes and cost of living would be in the median price ranges. There are a wide array of diverse nationalities residing here. Most of my neighbors and friends stay fit because of nearby lakes, walkways, and preserved land set aside for just these reasons.
I like the history, and I wish the crime would change. The real estate market in town is flooded with subdivided apartments of questionable leglity which are home to many illegal immigrants.
