Bloomfield Township Reviews

52 reviews
All Categories
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.
There is a great deal that Bloomfield has to offer. There have been a great deal of changes in the past few years. The area close to me is a few blocks away from "Bloomfield Center" they have added a senior housing building, additions to Bloomfield College, they have built 2 new supermarkets an Aldi's and a Foodtown that one is closer to the center. I do read about a slight rise in crime, but that is pretty much all over i believe and the Bloomfield Police Dept. are constantly patrolling, so I feel relatively safe. I do wish however that there was somewhat more affordable living.
