Lyndhurst is a very quiet small town. It is a very close-knit family where everyone knows everyone. There are places to shop at, family-owned restaurants to eat in, and nice parks to run in. This town is safe and never have I felt scared to walk alone. People are friendly and kind for the most part, and very respectful.
A very good place to grow up. It is very close to New York, has several forms of transportation, whether it be bus, train, or just easily drivable roads. The town offers many schools and includes many grocery stores as well as local shops and restaurants. As I’m getting older, however, there is barely anything to do there that is local and fun for a younger person to enjoy the night.
