I moved to Cresskill when I was 13, so a freshman in high school. I've moved around before but I figured this time would be different because my mom grew up here. Going to school on that first day, I soon found out that the kids were already in their little cliques, and so were the parents. It was hard to make friends here. There's not much to do and the job opportunities are good for teens, except that they expect you to work from after school till closing when you have to go home and do homework, etc. The safety is alright, the cops are good but somehow there always seems to be trouble somewhere. The school system is terrible, I teach myself the material in school. I can't say much about the middle/ elementary schools because I did not attend them. There's so much traffic in the morning because there's so many people in a very tiny area. Overall it's not that bad, there definitely could be worse places to live.
A nice, diverse community where everyone knows each other. There are some fine dining establishment and a lot of playgrounds. You will see the mayor often at football games and soccer games so you know how the government is close to the community.
