Cranford Township Reviews
I grew up in Cranford, left, then returned for 3 years to sell my parents home and have seen many bad changes in downtown. It has become a drinking mecca with too many drunk drivers going home unscathed from police. Where are clothing stores and other interesting stores to justify your parking meter money. It's nothing more than a boring, greedy, alcoholic town. Good riddance!
Great school system, close proximity to NYC. The train goes directly into the city, which is very convenient. The downtown is really cute and full of good restaurants and small businesses. Unfortunately, many aspects of cranford, such as the shoppes, can be really overpriced. The local parks, such as Nomahegan and Mohawk, are really stunning and are teeming with wildlife. The local community college is affordable; the campus is great with lots of parking and security officers. The town is very family friendly and caters to families with frequent town events.
Quaint New Jersey suburb with a pleasant downtime of shops and restaurants from a variety of ethnicities. Large Irish American and Italian American populations. Some lovely parks and green spaces throughout the town. Historic Rahway River crosses through the town, which makes for fun canoeing. Lots of sports and activities for children and teenagers.
