Belleville Township Reviews
Belleville is a very diverse community, with several construction and other municipal projects always going on. However, taxes there always seem to be on the rise, like clockwork. The school system, while good, could use more improvement.
There is not much going on. Nothing to do in the town, and the public school system isn't great. There are many politics and favoritism involved in community decisions. Expensive to live here, but not much to offer.
I have lived here for a little over a year and I have found it to be a cute little community. I do feel safe, however, at night I am a bit more aware of my surroundings.

I like the safety of the neighborhood and the school system. It is a safe place to raise children and the school system operates as if they are private. However, I don't care too much for the water system as the water seem to be highly contaminated .
The past few years living here, i can say that Belleville is a very calm and friendly town to live at. The people are friendly, there are a few good restaurants and bars to go to at night and there are a lot of stores to shop for daily needs.
Overall, I enjoy living in Belleville. The group of people living in the area are very diverse. There are different restaurants from different backgrounds, most of which have excellent tasting food. I feel safe walking from point A to point B within the town. Mostly everything is in walking distance. There are always town events.
I like the people and the diversity of Belleville. There are some parts are aren't too safe to go to, but still a nice town to live in. The public school system could be better, but I like the other classmates I see everyday. Also, if I were to change at least one thing, I would change the public school transportation policy so that everyone in Belleville can get a bus ride.
The people are okay as long as you know a lot of families. The schools are not great and you have to know someone in order to get into sports. For a young couple, it's cheap and not bad but for a family, look elsewhere.
Belleville is very ethnically diverse and a family-oriented town. Public transportation is very accessible.
overall, i love to live here. despite the fact that the public school systems are on the lower end and the cost of rentals in the area are a bit much for what it is. but everything else is close by such as places to eat, supermarkets, shopping, etc.
I love the website. Very easy to use and its easy to understand. Also has do information a lot of scholarships for everyone to apply!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am a current High School student at Belleville. It is a very quiet town with many diverse residents. I can safely say that there are residents with various races and there is never a time when I get a feeling of discrimination. Belleville is very tame as far as violent activities go and there is rarely any events of crime happening in the area. The town is family friendly as well. I live near our local park and there is always something eventful going on that is fun for everyone. Most Belleville's issues revolve around the schools. I believe that the schools should be provided with cleaner water fountains and restroom facilitites.
belleville is a small town and we come together for special occasions like just a party or veterans day parade. however there are a lot of sexual predators in our town.
i like that belleville is known for the beautiful cherry blossom trees in Branch Brook Park. i dislike that there are parts of belleville that are known to be worse than others because it makes less people want to live there.
Beautiful town, clean and convenient location easy routes to NYC and newark public school have good programs
I have honestly never heard of crime in this neigborhood. I used to live 2 blocks away before I moved to this adress and have never felt safer. I walk my dog late at night without any concerns. The police is very responsive. I have had to call them twice- once for a rabid racoon in the middle of the day and another because my mother got lost and both times they came to my house within 3 minutes of the call.
I really like this area. It's clean and safe, which are the two most important things to me. Other than that, I really like that I can find shops, gyms, banks and restaurants within a short walk. There's also a huge hospital about a mile away, which is a plus.

The houses could be cheaper. There are some abandoned properties that have been the same for a long time. It takes a few years until something new comes up. Worst area is silver lake, right next to Newark.
We usually have community events, for example marathons, parties, festivities, and many school events open to friends and family in the community. Only some people tend to stay for a certain amount of period then move out. I would say the neighborhood is pet friendly.
I see police at the corner of streets most of the time, they're usually alert. There's a police station on the main street, easier access when calling for help. I don't hear about crimes a lot from our town, usually hear it from nearby towns or cities.
