Boonton Reviews

Boonton is a quaint, diverse town. It has a vibrant main street with shops & restaurant for just about everyone. It's very under-rated but has a lot going for it.
Review Boonton
Housing is ok. Rent is a bit high and homes vary. Some are priced high while others are more affordable, depending on the section of town.
The town is very diverse. Many families have lived in the area for a few generations. The town is small enough that you generally know who everyone is. It can be a positive or negative. There's a general sense of community.
