Bloomfield Township Reviews

56 reviews
All Categories
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.
Review Bloomfield Township
Bloomfield is one of the most diverse and upcoming communities in northern Jersey. Our close proximity to New York City makes real estate desirable for anyone looking for a reasonably short commute to the big apple. Filled with various restaurants and dinning events, Bloomfield's nightlife thrives on its dinner scene. The public school system is reliable and any parent can feel secure when enrolling their children in school. Our school system is nationally ranked for diversity and sends several students to some of the most elite colleges and universities in the country. Bloomfield is perfectly placed for traveling to surrounding cities and you can find anything you desire at your fingertips.
For the past two decades, there has been a unique likeness as to how a simple element as the weather can convey positive impact to humanity.. I've enjoyed the love to consecutively experience the various seasons year after year. We encounter winter from December through March along with the beautiful snow continuously decorating nature. In the months of April and May comes the spring time! This season brings the spirit of radiance, as the flowers reminds us that there is such beauty to life. As the flower fades the summer comes in its richest glory serving as a tool of rest and relaxation in the sun. At last it all comes to an end approaching "autumn" the season of color. I stand in awe as I watch the leaves paint the trees in a breathtaking parade of wise design. Nature is one of the most essential parts of life.

The most important items in my wardrobe would technically be selected winter wear. Reason being is for the lengthy amount of cold winters permitted yearly. I am very fortunate to reside in an area where natural disasters are limited.
