Review Glen Ridge
This area of New Jersey is very desirable. The schools are great, the general atmosphere is one of wealth and safety, and it is very close to New York City. There is easily accessible public transportation, has "mom and pop" shops as well as chain stores, and has almost everything one could need for a fulfilling existence within a 15 mile radius. I would love to raise my family in this area one day. Not only would I be close to my family, my children would have the opportunity to enjoy this lovely area as much as I do.
Peaceful town, low crime, not quite as walkable as I like, but still walkable, bikeable, runable, and driveable. Nice people, I feel happy going home.
The local businesses around this area are average at best for the most part. The restaurants have average food at moderate prices. The other local businesses vary from flower shops to pharmacies and are usually located in small mall-type areas. Most businesses in this area are located in Monticlair, New Jersey. This is where the majority of the local businesses are located. This location is the center of business in my local area.
