The crowded beaches in NJ is proof of just how good they are. People come from all over to be there. Our country as a whole has become over-populated anyway. Just enjoy the beauty for what it is.

I know people are tempted to feed the gulls,,,, please don't as they have a job cleaning up the the dead critters washed up in the surf. Put you foods away when going into the water, they converge on you blankets and poop all over everything including your neighbors on the next blanket. I see it every summer. FYI just a suggestion.

I went with some friends to Belmar yesterday - seemed convenient from Lawrenceville, and they know how to go - trust me - that place is total trash; the beach was filthy with bottles and cans, and rowdy low class 20 somethings. Could someone explain to me why there are no fines for littering on these beaches in NJ? And why no one uses the trash cans?

Why wasn't Keansburg on the list? :-)
