Manchester Township Reviews
Rating 3.8 out of 5 50 reviews
I like that Manchester is a small town but is in a great location close to the beach and relatively close to both New York City and Philadelphia.
Because I want to get out of work New Jersey and leave the Village East cuz I hate it here and because I hate Brick Boulevard and I hate it here and leave her Village it's like living in a jail too many rules I'm tired of paying maintenance I want to live my life and peace and quiet and Harmony I hate it here I'm here 12 years and I hated him from the day I moved in please help me find something I'm so proud ateful I don't want to assist in living house please I hate it here I want to get out
Great place to live. Close to lakes, beaches, restaurants and retail and several parks. Small town community feel.
I have lived in Manchester New Jersey my whole life. It is a small suburban town with three elementary schools, one middle school, and one high school. It is a pretty safe environment not much criminal activity besides speeding. School systems are pretty decent. It is in close proximity to Seaside Heights, which is nice for the summer. Has a couple shopping malls near by. Not much entertainment near by besides a movie theater but that is on the border of another town so I guess that does not really count. Overall a pretty nice, calm, and safe area just does not have a lot of things to do.
Manchester. What a town. Manchester is composed of Pine Lake Park and Whiting. I went to MTHS and grew up in Whiting. Both sects of Manchester are suburbs, but Whiting falls on the rural side of things. Schooling in Manchester is really good. Not much happens in Manchester. It's safe. It's about 20-30mins away from everything if you want to do something. There is stuff that's local within a 5-10min range. Plenty of jobs whether it be part time or full time.
Beautiful neighborhoods, great schools , lots of parks and pretty lakes ,still affordable, friendly people.And you’re only about 20 minutes from the beach. When I lived there it felt like I was back in the 70s kids riding bikes in the streets lots of stay at home mothers just an all-around great place to live.
basically a senior living residential town, dont hardly see or gear any children, very clean quiet,sedate, virtually no nightlife, im from big apple new york, so quite a change for me. beautiful countrylike atmosphere, no big buildings, can see the sky, lots of trees and greenery, great for nature lpvers.
If you're looking for any type of cultural or intellectual stimulation, this town is not for you. Mostly, this town consists of retirement communities, sporadic strip malls, and funeral homes. Anything that you might want to do, such as see a movie or even to get your car washed, you'll have to go to Toms River for. Can't even walk anywhere, as there aren't any sidewalks. Do yourself a favor if you're considering moving to this area, and look at Toms River instead. Unless you're a person that is looking to live in a place where there is absolutely nothing to do.
I've lived here for 3 years. It's fairly quiet and I love my neighbors. I am so impressed with the Twp employees. Someone always throws stuff in the woods they come remove it. I've had 4 dead trees in the woods they came and removed them. I have branches laying on my roof they came the next day and removed them. My tax money is not being wasted. Thank you for all you dom
Nothing around for miles except dilapidated dollar general, pharmacies and funeral homes amongst old retirement villages. Depressing.
Manchester is a nice town that has some wooded areas. It would be much better if they had some recreation for children and young adults. Parks with walk areas, playgrounds and other activities would be a good attraction. Also the shopping is minimal and is restricted to ShopRite, stop and shop and Dollar general.
Growing up here was a good community. Small tight knit group of kids, growing up together from K-12. Life lasting friends.
Nice community that is not too big and loud, but still have plenty of events going on around town to enjoy your time!
Manchester is a great town to live in. Its clean, not too much crime, plenty of local shops and businesses.
I was born and raised in this quaint little town, and I have fallen in love with this cute little community. New Jersey has some of the best schools in the nation and it is very evident in the schools of this township. There are so many resources provided by the community that students like me earn thousands in scholarships exclusive to our high school. There are so many community events that you can always take your family somewhere nice. The beach is not far and major cities are a mere stone's throw away. I love Manchester, and I would highly recommend it for those looking for a nice place to settle down.
I grew up in Manchester Township. It isn't a big town but isn't small either. It has easy access to other local towns for stores or entertainment. I have the local naval base practically in my back yard and every night when I go to sleep I am lulled by the sound of Taps being played. We have a rich local history and most places in Manchester are still green and beautiful. The schools love their students and rally behind them.
Lots of open space, initially property taxes were very reasonable, but they have continued to increase yearly. Good value for retirees, but taxes, which initially attract people, are starting to push people away.
