We moved in 2004 from NYC mostly for the living space to cost relationship and for the public schools, which seemed pretty good. We are a mixed family: Tunisian-Canadian and German-American, and wanted a diverse community. We found excellent schools that supported a range of student needs, from immigrant families with little English to well educated NYC commuters, and tons of extracurricular activities from grade school on up. The township offers so many programs, from low cost summer sports and art clinics, to health screening and beautiful parks. The stores are not the most sophisticated, but that is slowly changing with a seasonal farmers market and a couple of yoga studios. Definitely made the right decision, along with some great friends.

The people in the community is friendly and they look out for each other. Despite the age and the gender we respect everyone and we show love and support to the everyone. The town is safe. Police Officers are seen everywhere and they are always a phone call away. So your safety is at their best interest. The major is very much involve and reach other to every member of the community. Also, the schools are highly recommended because they have the best teachers. Overall Bloomfield is a great town with friendly and loving people who always welcomes you with a smile. Make Bloomfield the town to live or retire, have a family and just live happy. Thank you
Bloomfield is a very diverse, family oriented town that is approximately 20 minutes from NYC. Bloomfield can be a central hub to many locations for public transportation, such as easy access to trains and buses to NYC. Very affordable for cost of living, lost of restaurants and shopping centers. It is also located blocks away from Montclair that has an enormous amount of restaurants, nightlife, parks, etc. To me Bloomfield is getting the best top amenities without paying top dollar.
