I have lived in Lyndhurst my entire life. I love how involved everyone is when we have events. Growing up I had great teachers and friends. After attending all of grammar, middle, and high school I am still a native. I have family all throughout town that I love to see and visit. Lyndhurst is a great location for commuting to New York City. Local super markets, gas stations, and great restaurants are all at a very close if not walking distance. I hope to pursue and live in Lyndhurst when I get married and have children.

I was born and raised in Lyndhurst, NJ. Although the town was a little different then. Lots of children and people outdoors in nice weather. Decorations everywhere for holidays. Safe streets to walk down whatever time.
Lyndhurst is a very unique town. Students are very active, board of education meetings are common, the parents and teachers are very intact with the public school system, but there is a financial deficit.
