Following the closing of Tent City, several tents have popped up in different areas around town, TLS learned, but authorities are cracking down forcefully, making sure to dismantle any tents found on Township property before they can attract additional tents, and occupants.

This morning, police were notified about a tent situated in a wooded area off of Ridge Avenue, and upon arrival found a tent with clothing and other items indicating someone was presently living there. Crews from the DPW dismantled the tent.

  1. If Lakewood would build a homeless shelter for these people instead of huge developments for purely ethnic groups this would not happen.
    These are tough times for people and if there is no where to live because of HIGH RENTS then this will continue to happen.
    Clean out Lakewood from the illegal aliens and give people from this country that have fallen on hard times a fair chance.
