Lincroft is great, Middletown is horrible. I’m not sure how Lincroft got incorporated into Middletown, but they should have looked towards Holmdel, Shrewsbury or Colts Neck. Lincroft is a nice little village with great access to the major roads for commuting and close proximity to anything you could want. The school have been good historically, but overdevelopment has been causing class sizes to rise. They added about 900 bedrooms to town in 2019 and there are no plans for an addition to the elementary school. My wife’s family grew up here and from what I hear, modernization has really changed what was once a sleepy little town. Speeding is horrendous and the Middletown Police are almost never present. Over all, it isn’t a bad place to live, it just isn’t the place it is known for anymore, which is really sad.

Best place in Middletown to live. Close to transportation, walkability to local shops and grocery store. Close to Community College, public schools and great private schools also. Nearby everything, restaurants,beaches, parks, nearby Red Bank nightlife
Great school system. Very suburban area, generally friendly neighborhoods. My neighborhood is mostly older couples with kids off in college or settled elsewhere with family.
