My biggest complaint about Jersey Street is the litter. The people who live here are slobs; the porches, sidewalks, and streets are filled with trash. Many people in Trenton will not keep the front of their homes too nice, so as not to invite theft, but a decent neighborhood will at least keep things clean. The police patrol Jersey St. frequently; there is almost always a police car parked (with a police officer in it) at the corner of Jersey and Tremont. Even so, it is loud and the second half of Jersey St. has some serious crime problems. The first half (the half attached to Lalor St.) is not quite as bad. There are a number of state offices in this area and it is interesting to go to a corner restaurant and see the mix of business professionals with the locals. Food here is good - many corner restaurants serve good food, and Chambersburg, known for relatively fine dining at decent prices, is just a mile away. DeVito's, on the corner of Tremont and Beatty, is good for lunch...Melaga on the corner of Lalor and Jersey has terrific Mexican cuisine (and sometimes dancing) for a nice dinner. Public transportation is good; there are cabs and buses, and the train station is less than 2 miles away. The Trenton schools are awful. This is by far not the worst area of Trenton, but it's not good, either.
