GR is a great little town- close to NYC & culture, easy access to mountains & the beach. Pretty streets & houses, nice people, & a cute little downtown. You know everyone & they know you (the +/- of such a small town). A bit insane for sports & academics. Students feel pressured to succeed/excel, but there is lots of support to help you. Kids from GR go to a wide variety of excellent colleges, but not many to the Ivy's.
Review Glen Rock
My town is beautiful. Lately there have been many houses for sale that are sold or under contract with in the first few weeks on the market. Most of the homes are single family homes, with a little yard, a garage, and a driveway. There are some apartments above the stores downtown. The schools are great, and we have a great downtown area with lots of fun stores and restaurants. We have two train lines that take you to the city. The problem is the taxes are very high, and houses are expensive. I'm lucky that I can live here.
I grew up in Bergen County, settled in Passaic county, got divorced and moved to Colirado, now I'm back in Bergen county. I did love living out in Colorado, but I had to move back to New Jersey. The town I am in is great, it feels like home, I feel safe here, my daughter loves the school. The only prblem is that it's so expensive to live here.
