      Carteret is swell, I tell you that and you can trust this opinion coming from a veteran who served in two wars. I know a good place when I see one, and the Victorian Age homes can still be found although they are few and far in between nowadays. Living in Carteret is different from other places in New Jersey in many ways, however.

      Take a place like Willingboro, a true suburb of Camden, yet you wouldn't be able to tell unless you drove 10 minutes to Camden and saw it for yourself. Nestled in the hearth of the metropolis known as the Greater New York Area, you feel as though you are apart from all the rest of the world living here.

      I know home price and crime can be an issue anywhere, and too bad we can't eliminate all of the bad from the world. Things are very manageable for the young up and comer, as well as for the retired decorated vet.
