Wow, it really is a remarkably safe are. Time to shelve my paranoia.
"According to NeighborhoodScout's analysis of FBI crime statistics, Fort Lee is safer than 83% of the cities and towns in the US of all population sizes. In New Jersey, only on the order of 18% of the communities have a lower crime rate than Fort Lee. If you live in Fort Lee, your chance of becoming a victim of crime in the community is 1 in 117. The US average across communities from the largest to the smallest is 1 in 31. It is for these reasons that Fort Lee is ranked as one of the top 100 safest cities in the U.S.A."
LOL! Originally from Bloomfield and know that expression all to well!
Well, since the question appears to have been answered and this thread is already slipping off topic:
A friend from high school married a girl from nj and they lived in Bloomfield when they first got married.
I've only driven through there and gotten gas at the last station on the turnpike, but it is a totally not scary place. I would be much more afraid to leave a vehicle just about anywhere in Birmingham.
Yes, I WISH that there were MANY more single, straight, eastern Asian women here in this area, like the density of them in that town, and some others in Joyzee.
(I am from western Union County originally, and hung out in the Parsippany area often.)
