Beyond Montclair, Glen Ridge, Maplewood, South Orange - Commutable Suburbs in Essex County NJ

NYC commutable suburbs in Essex County? - The media focus is often on Montclair, Glen Ridge, Maplewood, South Orange and the demand for homes in those areas is high as are the prices (and taxes!). Great towns indeed. But don't overlook the surrounding towns - Bloomfield, Verona, Cedar Grove, the Caldwells where buyers can get more square footage for their money and taxes are often lower. We recently sold a move-in ready home in Bloomfield, walking distance to the NYC bus, a grocery store and other shops, and the always beautiful Brookdale Park (a deciding factor for those buyers). We have a few homes for sale in Verona including one up in the Afterglow section where the sunsets can't be missed. Looking for more land? Essex Fells is lovely. Newer housing stock? Try North Caldwell. We know these areas very well and can provide excellent guidance. Lovely parks, sweet downtowns, great schools. Commuting to NYC options include the DeCamp bus, NJ Transit Park and Ride, or driving to a nearby mid-town direct train station (Bloomfield) and taking the train.
