If the safety net of raising your child in an all white neighborhood and school, pretentious people who compete with one another over who has the fewest dandelions sticking out of their lawns, and people who have are bitter about having to make a long commute to the financial district so they can raise a family in an all white neighborhood and keep their 200K+ salary, by all means, live here! There's not one good restaurant in the whole town and not even a decent grocery store (no, I don't consider Trader Joe's decent). If you see a black kid walking out of the boro school, please take a picture as it will be a rare sight! Oh and these people will tell you that nothing on the west side of 35 is a "bad area." Ignorance is real.

I have lived here for 10 years now, and I do not have anything bad to say about Shrewsbury. It's a quiet town in NJ.
I enjoy having the beach near by, it is usable all year round, even just for walks. People are much too competitive here. I would much prefer to live in a less upper class area or in the western part of the country among people with different mentalities. I see this area staying the same, people tend to move back here and raise their own families.
