( 28, 2020)--Daniel Boggs recently submitted a Letter to the Editor titled "Are The Communities of Gloucester City/Brooklawn Turning Into Slums?".  Although we agree with  Mr. Boggs about some neighborhoods in Gloucester City having a housing and trash problem the only thing we found walking through Brooklawn today were two derelict cars missing license plates and NJ inspection stickers.

We liked how the Borough placed a tarp with a woodsy scene on one side of the public works property. Every street we viewed was cleaned, the homes were all kept nice, and there was no trash blowing around. The residents should be commended for taking pride in their community.  

The Borough placed a tarp with a woodsy scene on the fence that surrounds the highway department so the nearby residents don't have to view the equipment stored in the compound. CNBNews photo

It should be mentioned there has been some improvement with the housing on the EAST side of Gloucester City. We included some photos of homes that have been renovated recently and are for sale in the Riverview Heights section of the City closed to the Cold Springs School complex.
