Yes a million times over! I'm so happy we were able to do it, not everyone is as lucky.
Do you have any specific concerns?

The pros are endless.
Tons of space. Privacy. Lots of big shopping centers within quick driving distance. We have a pool so that's a huge bonus. Quieter slower paced lifestyle. Did I say space?!
Cons will vary depending on your job and kids ages.
B"h for us jobs weren't an issue.
Our 1 con is that older kids that used to walk in the city everywhere on their own are now reliant on car rides. My son can't just walk a block for Maariv. He needs to be taken with the car. But for us that is a very minor tradeoff.

Is it true the water in Toms River is contaminated? Years ago I read an article in Ami about how the water in Toms River gave children cancer

You have to find out if there is a real shul. Not just open on Shabbos or specific weekday hours if it’s important to have a beis medrish to go learn nearby. It’s not so common in Toms River or Jackson.
Also mikvah - not everywhere is one walkable Friday night.
Should be part of research if important.

We have moved recently. And honestly, I am not looking back. I love it here. As do my kids.
The space. The quality of life. It’s amazing. I have no problem driving anywhere, where in Brooklyn I would think 10 times before taking the car out knowing I will spend an hour looking for parking.
We moved right near a shul. 3 minute walk. There are a lot of small shtibels all over. Shopping is way better than Brooklyn. If you drive, it’s endless. I used to want to go to Trader Joe’s in Brooklyn, but parking made me think twice. Now, it’s not a problem.

In regards to work, that is an issue. But I am not married to my job, and will find another one here, closer to home.

A year ago my husband begged to come and move here. I said no. Now if he would ask me to move back, I would say no. But don’t worry. He loves it here as much as I do.

Lol about the toxins... Go read about Brooklyn and places with high radiation and everything else in the world. You may wanna revert to an old cave somewhere alone.

Brooklyn is not built on a toxic dump but Tom's River is. You couldn't pay me to live there.

The area that used to be toxic doesn't have anything built on it, it's empty land. And it was finished cleaning 10 years ago. Why would you say Toms River is built ON a toxic dump?

Google superfund sites you'll find them all over in every city/ state, including Brooklyn.
