Nutley Township Reviews

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, New Jersey is located conveniently 10 miles away from mid-town Manhattan but possesses the quaint quality of being a quiet suburban enclave. Between homes and rentals Nutley has diversified its real-estate, though the town itself caters to predominantly single family home clientele. A good bulk of the the town's real-estate is divided among rental homes, apartments, two family homes, and condos. Homeownership ranges from anywhere between 300k to 800k, rentals from $1200 to $4000. With a short 20 to 30 commute for most people work is elsewhere. Nutley prides itself on an excellent park system and exceptional school system much more superior then the neighboring towns. Not only is the town supremely safe but it also possesses the distinct quality of bringing previous residents back in. There is an unspoken charm to the municipality.
Nutley is a quiet, simple town that many do not know about. Full of history within their food, town events, and most importantly their strong educational system. The town is rich in the Italian culture and probably the best pizza you could find within the area. I've lived in this town for 24 years of my life and have attended elementary, middle, and high school. I absolutely would not change it for the world. It takes only a 20 minute bus ride to the bustling New York City within walking distance from my house. There are beautiful parks, walkways, and small bridges to enjoy the scenery of cherry blossom following a lovely flowing stream. Nutley is by far the safest especially because of our quick ambulance, firefighter, and police response. No discrimination of any race and people are very open-minded about diversity. I love this home where my Filipino parents and their family decided to live. I'm grateful to be a Nutley resident.
