Check Out The 10 Smallest Towns in New Jersey; 3 at the Shore
We broadcast out of studios in downtown Toms River, a town of over 90,000 in Ocean County. While we're fairly densely populated here, we're in no way close to New York City, Philadelphia, or Trenton. On the other hand, we're a long way away from a small, rural town with no stoplights. Surprisingly, there are a couple of towns in New Jersey that are teeny tiny, with just handfuls of people. Would you consider moving to one of these?
