North Arlington is a beautiful, quite, peaceful and friendly little town in New Jersey. I've been living here for the past three years and I couldn't be happier. All the neighbors are very friendly and there is a lot of family-shops in town, you can find all kind of different foods and services. Also is very easy to get to Manhattan from North Arlington which makes the comute something simple. The town is very clean and organized. It's a small town but is amazing living here.
North Arlington is a quiet suburb with great schools and a tight-knit community. It's safe, with a relatively low crime rate, and was listed as Time Magazine's best place to live in the United States. I've lived here since I was four years old and have attended Washington Elementary, North Arlington Middle School, and North Arlington High School. I feel that each school helped me grow as a person and gave me the tools I needed to succeed. It's a wonderful town.
