    It was all much better 15 plus years ago when no one was out here. This area is nothing compared to the way it was before all the people that couldn't afford to live elsewhere starting moving here. I wish they went further and moved into PA or south to the Pine Barrens, instead of ruining the real country living. It's a city on a farm around here...now that's depressing!

    Wow, I guess you mean me...even though I moved into a 200 year old home nd fixed it up, added my tax dollars to our town's coffers...Gosh, you have to get a grip...nothing stays the same...thats called stagnation.
    Have a nice day!

    no, actually you need to get a grip! It would be nice if things could stay the same, even though that is nearly impossible. I don't remember anyone 15 years ago calling this area stagnate when we had 50% less people, beautiful farmland , no traffic, no crime, low taxes, clean air, no noise, no yuppies. With more spurge population comes more problems. And what's moving into a 200 year old fixer upper have anything to do with you moving here? You could have got that in Montclair/East Orange or North Plaifield and added your tax $ there instead.....

    Yes, Joe, it would be nice if things could stay the same - I could be the same 21-year-old I used to be, ground beef would be 3 lbs. for a dollar, I could buy a new car for under $5,000, gas would cost thirty-five cents per gallon...

    It's nice to dream.

    You know, at first I wanted to ignore that last one, then I decided to reply politely.
    What you described 15 years ago here was the way my hometown was thirty years ago...but that all changed and huge houses were built everywhere and traffic increased as well as the price of homes. Yes, I could have gone to those other towns, but I also wanted my kids to live in a country setting, affordable for me...safe for all of us.
    I brought up my house because it was practically falling down when I bought it, and I have been working on it ever since. I feel I have contributed to this area, I have not decimated it.
    I am sorry that you are opposed so strongly to new people in your town, but it's my town now, too, and I'm not going anywhere!

    Joenirvana,..for loving this town so much you sure don't want to share it! Instead of showing animosity towards those who have chosen this beautful area to live in you should be excited to welcome all to this little piece of "heaven" I would hate to think that someone is not happy to see me!!=)

    Apparently, this is what yuppies look like. I don't recall seeing a lot of them there yuppies walking around Stop&Shop, ShopRite, Staples, Target, Circuit City, PB Mall, Lowes, or Home Depot. What's all this talk of yuppies. Last time I was in ShopRite, it was full of jogging pant, jeans, wearing people. Although, there are a lot of BMW's being drivin around. To me, the BMW 3/5 series is like the Ford Escort. Everyone's got one. Well, except me, of course!

    Be Happy! (the real Stewey)

    I don't know how great things used to be but if the people who shop at the walmart or the P-burg mall are any indication, I can only say the new people are helping.

    Holy cow, I haven't seen so many people who've given up on life and looking halfway respectable in my entire life in one concentrated location.

    Well said, goldie and cynosure. There is a big difference between remembering the past fondly......and being stuck there !
