I moved to this town 4 years ago from Old Tappan which is five minutes away. It is just my mom and I in a little house thats perfect for just the two of us. The town is amazing and adorable. Neighbors are friendly and everything is pretty much walking distance. It is a good community, everyone looks out for one another, there are good little places to eat. This area is also incredibly safe, my mom and I live down the street from the police station and we feel very safe.

Northvale is a thriving community with shopping, cafes & family oriented with top rated schools and nice people!
To think of it, I am fairly privileged to live in a town that is so safe compared to many others. However, the first thoughts that come to my mind when I think of the town, are negative thoughts. The school had a drastically negative impact on my mental health not only because of bullying by other students, but also bullying by teachers.
