That's funny, but it seems like you're attaching a certain undue stigma to Tent City.  Poor people live outside of Tent City too, and government usually pays much of their rent.  There's just as much of drugs, alcohol, and other problems in poor neighborhoods outside Tent City.  What makes Tent City different is that it doesn't use taxpayer money.  It's people who for whatever reason can't afford an apartment (which is impossible for one person to afford on minimum wage in this area), living cheaply so that they could pull their own weight, or rely on voluntary charity and mutual aid.  Tent City is good for the poor, and it's good for taxpayers too!

Get real. Its a miracle that their fires didn't burn down half of Lakewood. Go tell the kids with asthma from all the smoke that its a benefit.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

WOW!!  So simple Mr Alex. It's like, what's wrong with everyone else around you that doesn't understand the "benefits" of tent city. Who cares that it's a hideout for crooks and criminals. Who cares that they're  polluting the air for all of us law abiding citizens. Who cares that the invaders trespass and urinate on private property, that people paid for with their hard earned money. Who cares to  pay attention to the fact that they chose Lakewood to open their illegal settlement, and not Trenton, Camden or Philly........ Why can't the citizens of Lakewood be heard also.

Re-read and still haven't seen anything saying that he's a resident except that he said "our" which could just mean he feels like its the shtuts tent city.
