I've lived in Nutley for 17 years. This town is a hidden gem! It is very walkable, and you can practically walk anywhere through a park. The downtown area offers many different dining and shopping options. The essence of the town is very quaint with graceful old homes, yet urban and modern. There are a plethora of amenities within a 10-20 minute drive. Nutley never feels like it is very far from anything. Off-hours, you can get into the Lincoln Tunnel within 11 minutes. The taxes are on the high end, but very comparable to other nearby towns in New Jersey. But keep in mind, the town's services are very good, including impeccable maintenance of the parks and a highly responsive police and emergency system. It is a safe and quiet town with a lot to offer.
Nutley is a great little town with a continuous park that goes right through the center. It has a great, well rounded school system and their parks and recreation offers an extra curricular activity for everyone. Nutley shop rite grocery store has a great selection of different food products at great prices and if you’re looking for a night out the different restaurants are all exquisite. Nutley is that small town close to NYC that everyone wants to start their family in.
