Essex County Reviews
I've lived in Essex County for about 41 years and I must say that it has it's good and bad features, like every state does. What I like about Essex County is the convenience of the transportation system and everything needed to survive, being in close proximity. What I don't like is most things being overpriced, the crime rate and traffic! But Essex County is easily accessible to New York City, which I love. If you're fortunate enough to live in the rich areas of EC, I'm sure it's a dream.
Very warm, the people are very nice. The great learning environment, teachers and counselors are very resourceful and helpful. A variety of cultures and backgrounds to learn from. Will definitely recommend going to this school
Good place to save money, great colleges and transportation systems and the rating for a family friendly environment is also affected by the lack of safety after hours. The cost of living is average, which also affects the real state, hence making the market not so desirable.
