Oradell is very clean town. Everyone is pretty nice to each other. However, taxes are too expensive! Also, the quality of education should be improved.

We recently moved to Oradell from Lyndhurst. (both towns in Bergen county). Schools are really good here compared to other places. In addition town does lot of things for kids aging elementary to high school. we are still exploring benefits of town. but loved our decision to move here. They have really good special programs for kids with special needs and school doesn't move away from helping child with needs. that's benefit for kids and parents. But Elementary is only one school but school has limited choices when it comes to self contained classroom. restaurants are amazing and commute to city and GWB is worth the money. Yes after a while people want to move from here as taxes are too high.
There are 5 area's in town, all are special, but houses in 2/3 areas have more expensive dwellings. all go to the same school, there are 3 churches & a Catholic Grammer school & private Catholic High School. Parking is not allowed on the streets overnight. We have a volunteer Fire Department & excellent equipment. Little Fire House Theater a non profit entertains the area. We have a Memorial Day Parade & one on the 4th of July too; all town organizations take part, from scouts to BOE, Town Council, Church's, Library folk, Lions Club, Woman's Club, with many marching bands famous for drill marching on the field after actual parade. Speeches are few, fun & games, soda & hot dogs are enjoyed.!!
