Demographically , Ocean Grove is quite diverse.  The income data  for the Grove from the 2010 census shows many people with low numbers.  On the other hand, we are having a bit of gentrification as individuals from New York City or other cities buy second homes here.

There are many properties that look pretty shabby without meeting the criteria of being “derelict.”  However some of those places do have a certain “shabby chic” quality.  You don’t need a lot of money to add some character and charm to your home.  I’ve always enjoyed looking at Captain Midnight’s place on the Grovarian side of the New Jersey Avenue bridge.  To see a photo of the Captain’s place, go to this Blogfinger link:
