Cheap place to live. Close enough to various towns and cities for day trips. Several large retailers near by, you never have to drive far for what you are looking for, unless it's something specialized.

The general population is...something else. Considered a bad place to live because of the kind of people that live in and around the Township.

It is okay given it rural location and lack of entertainment activities. There are a wide variety of restaurants including Two Guys from Italy which has the cheapest but somehow the best pizza in the area compared to Coney Island which is a old fashion burger place. The entertainment industry in this area is lacking. There really isn't a place for kids to go and do anything so they go and hang out at the local Dunkin Donuts. There are a variety of mom-and-pop shops as well. Ranging from the gaming corner in town to Pops Copy Shop. In reality besides entertainment you can get everything you need to survive in this area.
Besides the fast food places. Which all seem to lack proper management and never get cleaned. Most of the places in town are fantastic to eat at. The most popular of which seems to be Coney Island. It is an old fashion Hot Dog and Hamburger place that everyone agrees you most go and eat. Once you go once you always want to go back. Some people actually seem to live off the stuff. Then there is Brewsers Sports Bar and Grill. Which is the ultimate place to go right after the local high school football game. The food is great and you can't really beat the prices. Unfortunately the only club/dance place we had closed recently due to problems with the city government but is looking to reopen shortly.
