Where to stay in Ocean city, new jersey

Hello- this will be the first time my family will be vacationing in Ocean City NJ. We have no idea where to stay where the beach is not too crowded but still in close proximity to boards... is the North or South end more desirable? where are the most traffic/crowds located?

We have a few options- One on second street, One on 5th, and one on Central between 18th and 19th streets.

What would you guys recommend?

The rents are high because the purchase prices are also high and most folks have a big monthly payment to cover.

Last week in the Sentinel there was an article saying that Cape May County was going to make OC re-evaluate values for their property taxes as the county was getting short changed. Values in OC are going up about 2% a month. That's 24% a year, so expect the rental rates on newer houses to do about the same thing!

24% WOW! With the price of houses down there, I don't know how anyone can afford to live there! And, I thought Massachusetts was expensive! ;-)
