West Caldwell is a nice town to raise a family. Many students who graduated from James Caldwell High School either remained in town or moved back to the town to raise a family of their own. Would like to see the school systems provide better special education programs and provide the services needed for those students with disabilities.
It is a highly residential area, where everyone maintains their properties. The only downside is the increasing number of apartments/condos that are being cramped into spaces that should have been left alone.
