If it's crime you're concerned about - http://www.neighborhoodscout.com/nj/crime/ and http://www.njsp.org/info/stats.html are both places to find statistics about a neighborhood.
If you want to get a sense of how the neighborhood feels - is it quiet or loud, friendly or not - then you need to spend some time in the neighborhood. Go to the local events, shop in the stores, eat in their restaurants. That will help you decide if the neighborhood is right for you! Good luck!

Well I work the Linden area not to mention live there as well. Linden has it's good parts and it's bad parts like just about every other town out there. If you call me we could discuss what it is you're looking for, your requirements and your interpretation of "good and bad" and we can take it from there.

That may sound like a smart aleck response but I've learned what I may consider "good area" others may not and what I may consider "bad area" others may not because the question itself is subjective and why realtors are really restricted from answering but if you narrow down your meaning they may be able to assist more.

I'm from Linden, in general it's not a bad area by comparison to Roselle & Elizabeth and if you're interested in living in the Sunnyside section I can say it's probably the best section of town crime and school wise.

PS. I can offer buyer rebates and give more info on that when you call.

I agree with Edith - call the police department - they are the people that can comment with authority on the level of crime. I also recommend that you visit the area on different days and at different times of day to get a "feel" for the area you may live in and be sure you are comfortable with it. Monday morning will undoubtedly "feel" different than Friday night when everyone lets their hair down.

The best decisions are made with eyes wide open - good that you are doing your due diligence.

Best of luck to you,

Hi, Using the website given to you by earlier Realtors is great, but why not going to the local police station
and ask your questions, they know best and you can express what you are most worried about...

Good Luck to you in your home buying endeavours.

If unfamiliar with area, do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with local neighbors; also do contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand; real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase, or not, in specific neighborhoods...
