Bloomfield is an up and coming neighborhood with plenty of lovely outdoor spaces, great restaurants, and a perfect proximity to NYC with several train stops in the town. It's also close to both South Mountain Reservation and Eagle Rock for the nature lovers out there!
Review Bloomfield Township
Bloomfield is a great and very diverse township to live, work, and further your education, or just to raise a family. Bloomfield, also hosts many various family events, as well as educational fund raiser. Looking for a great way to start a high school student's education, one only needs to look at Bloomfield College. With Bloomfield College being a diversified institution, any student no matter what culture, or background will experence first hand intercultural life as a Bloomfield resident.
I grew up in Bloomfield, NJ since pre-school and went to a public elementary and high school. In grade school I always felt education was a priority and the teachers cared for the success of their students. As I became older, sports and extracurriculars were emphasized and promoted in a positive note. Not only for the youth to find outside interests but to also expound their knowledge and abilities. My favorite part of Bloomfield is the diversity. You can find people of all different races and cultures that it's the norm over there. It's a nice suburb with multiple family parks, neighboring towns with a night life, shopping, and everything to your convenience if you're looking for a supermarket, corner store, dry cleaners, hair salon to anything medical; dentists, physical therapy, doctors, etc. you name it.
