Englewood is a diverse town with much good and a few bad. The town is small enough for you to know your neighbors and large enough for you to get away from the noise of the downtown area. Englewood has all of the necessities of a thriving town. We have a reasonably priced ShopRite, plenty of restaurants offer varying flavors, a theatre, an awesome library and public transportation into New York City. Most residents are social and personable. The school system is a work in progress. There isn't a bridge between the schools and the community. Board meetings are EMPTY. Certain sections in Englewood need aesthetic work. Overall, Englewood is a nice town for families especially if you want to be an active member of your town.

I moved to Englewood, NJ in 2004 after my Father died. I like living in Englewood because we have a very diverse neighborhood. We have several multi-cultural events, including an annual block party where each family prepares and shared a food dish from their culture. I would like to see more recreational activities offered for the youth. We don't have many clubs or positive activities to partake in. I'd like to see the community come together and demand to know what this town is planning to contribute to the youth.
The town of Englewood, New Jersey is a great community. The current location that I reside in is surrounding with schools that are within walking distance, stores for shopping, car dealerships, salons, parks, churches and so on. Everything is convenient. One can walk any hours in the night time and feel safe. The community is composed of different ethnic groups such as African Americans, Hispanic, Whites, and also people who came from the Caribbean’s. One would like to live here and be apart of this amazing community. The only issue one might face is the cost of living. Other than that, if one was to do the math with everything close by instead of driving a distance, it would add up to the same as if you were living far away from everything and would have to drive. Would calculate the cost of gas, insurance and maintenance for a car. As for me, everything is within walking distance and buses are available for my commute lifestyle.
