"Crime in Perth Amboy" Perth Amboy Warnings Or Dangers Tip by NJ_nonstop

Perth Amboy Warnings and Dangers: 1 reviews and 0 photos

Crime rates have significantly dropped in Perth Amboy in the past 10 or 15 years largely because of the demolitions of two high rise housing projects. However Perth Amboy still isn't crime-free but if you're cautious especially during the night time you'll be fine. Harbortown, a townhouse development in Perth Amboy is probably one of the most crime infested parts of town. Even though there are many affluent and middle-class residents in Harbortown, there are also many section 8 recipients living side by side next to the middle-class residents. It is also ethnically diverse as it is economically diverse. While Harbortown is the most educated and one of the most expensive neighborhoods in town (for those who aren't on section 8), it also has the highest poverty rate.
