While we are talking about some of the other great things in the borough, I have to mention a few others. The borough has a really nice historic charm to it. To compliment the restaurants, we also have tons of quality entertainment and activities through out the year. It is really nice to walk a few blocks to see a nice Jazz concert or any number of other things that go on.
Also, I am a strong believer that for ourn tax dollars, we get some of the best municipal services in Monmouth County. Our taxes are moderate comparedd to similar towns, but we see what we get and it is good.
Other Monmouth and Ocean County schools named in the silver and bronze categories â€” among the top 504 in the nation â€” were the Academy of Allied Health and Science in Neptune, Freehold Borough High School..........Freehold High School was the only traditional public school in Monmouth and Ocean counties to receive the recognition.

The town does have ups and downs. You will find the people who live there do have genuine concerns, but overall love the town. The people of the town are great to get to know. It is a very nice community with down to earth people. I saw mention of the schools. The borough high school is very highly ranked, even better than the township which is also very good.
Give the town a chance, it is a great place to be. yes, it does have a rep, but much of that is very undeserved.
Personally I wouldn't buy there. I'm not saying that it is a bad place to live. I'm saying that I wouldn't BUY there.
