I am extremely grateful to have grown up in Middletown, however having moved away for college and now graduate school, the space has given me the ability to see the town through a different lens. Namely, the demographics and political nature of Middletown that I was unaware of as a child are not things I am proud of now, being a champion of diversity and tolerance. The success I have now is largely due to the wonderful teachers in the public schools Fairview, Bayshore, and High School North, and am thankful for the lessons they and the area taught me.
Middletown is a safe neighborhood with nice areas to take nature walks. Stores are close by but you need a car to reach them. Depending on where you live in Middletown, you are about 15 minutes away from the beach and 15 minutes away from the Monmouth Mall. The train station is close by and parking is free on the weekends. I do wish it was more diverse. Depending on where you want to live, affordability can be an issue even with a good paying job. Ever since my parents moved here, it has turned from middle class to upper middle class but there is a mix.
