Although new buildings keep popping up everywhere to accommodate new arrivals and creating a growing traffic issue, the area is great in terms of business and learning opportunities. Because of the amount of schools in the area, there are a multitude of kid-friendly activities to do and always new people your age to meet. I live in a neighborhood, allowing me to have a suburban life experience while still getting to enjoy small city life about a mile away.

I absolutely love this state. It has everything I want in atmosphere, amusements, beaches and people.

I love my school here, and am very happy I chose Monmouth University. If I had to, I would pick this again anytime!
Diversity of shops is impressive and caters to a number of cultures ranging from South America, West Indian Islands, Middle East and Asia. Though the typical offset of Walmart is present, specialized shops and family owned establishments still thrive in the area. Considering the area, a wide appeal to all classes and shopping ability are prevalent. There is a large mall that carries numerous designer labels and small department stores that range from clearance to thrift shops. The overall area is very accessible in terms of shopping and everyday living. The majority of shopping facilities are focal points in high public transit routes, and medical centers are also in high concentration in the area.
