    It is a great and beautiful area; however, the economy has effected the quality of life tremendously. People find it very hard to make a living and provide for their families.

    I love living in Brigantine. I wouldn't change it for the world ever since I experienced going away to college. I respect the community I grew up in and applaud them for making Brigantine a place everyone would want to live.

    There are many small, family-oriented businesses and other larger chains, but there is not a great variety of stores and not everything is easily affordable. The town is primarily a beach town, so prices always increase in the summertime.
