Midland Park has been an excellent town for my children to grow up in. The small school population enables the kids to be part of everything. I have owned two homes in town and each has increased in value almost every year. The taxes are very high, but being close to NYC taxes are high in the entire area. The town is quiet but the area is very congested with traffic increasing every year and more housing being built every day. Lots of people move out of the area after retirement due to high taxes/Winter weather. Having lived in several different areas of the country NJ is unique, fairly fast paced sometimes down right rude,very congested with great pizza and bagels. If your moving in you make twice as much but don't live twice as well as most of the country.

Midland Park is a fairly small town with an area size of about 1.5mi². The town people are very friendly and will make time our of their day to help you with directions or recommendations. The market square in downtown is a plus and holds a variety of restaurants and shops for visitors to spend time. Overall, I had a positive experience living in this area, but there are few activities to do(ex. nightlife, entertainment).
It's a great little town. It has a very low crime rate, very family-friendly. Although the houses are a bit on the pricy side it is well worth it. It is the perfect combination of a suburbia lifestyle while being very close to New York City.
