A Look Around Livingston

Livingston, New Jersey is a township in Essex County located in close proximity to bustling New York City. A small, bedroom community of approximately 28,000, Livingston is considered among the best, affordable suburbs in the country.

From specialty shops to boutiques to shopping malls, Livingston has it. Browse, window shop, and find the perfect item for your next big event at the  Mall at Short Hills, the area’s premiere, upscale shopping destination located just ten minutes from Livingston. Hungry? Try out some of the local favorites. The Ritz Diner is well-known for its apple pie and was featured on Food Network's "Diners, Drive-In's & Dives.” Cammarata's Pizza Pantry serves up one of Livingston’s favorite pizzas. Baumgart’s Café offers diners a wide variety of healthy, fresh options for lunch, dinner, brunch, and dessert.


Parks and Recreation
Open spaces and green living are important to the people of Livingston. The township currently has over 470 acres of wooded parks and hiking trails, and plans to continue adding recreational facilities and nature preserves in the future.  Littell Pond is the ideal place to fish in the summer and ice skate in the winter. The new kid’s skate park opened in Summer of 2010 to significant fanfare and excitement. Livingston also has a dog park, which features two distinct play areas.


Living
From starter homes in neatly maintained neighborhoods to luxury estates on large lots, Livingston real estate offers you everything you want at a price you can afford, all in close proximity to New York City and everything the tri-state area has to offer. New homes can be found or built in the  Bel Air Woods and Hillside Heights neighborhoods. The recently constructed, upscale, mixed-use Livingston Town Center includes newer town homes, single-level condos and single-family homes. New residents will enjoy the community’s Billiards room, indoor roof-top pool, and fitness center. There are several additional condominium communities in Livingston, including: The Regency Club, Cedar Gate, The Fairways, and The Pointe, a 55+ gated community with single-level, upscale condos and state-of-the-art amenities for the active older adult.


Schools, Health, Transportation
The award-winning  Livingston Public Schools system serves the children of the area. Livingston High School, a consistent first-place winner in various area math and science competitions, was recently renovated. The $50 million renovation included a new science wing, a new heath and fitness center, a new turf field and track, and an expanded music wing. Livingston has a high concentration of reputable, qualified medical providers, many of whom have affiliations with the best hospitals in New York City. The award-winning Saint Barnabas Medical Center is located in Livingston. Ranked one of the Top 50 Hospitals for Neurology and Neurosurgery in the U.S., the Center is also the oldest and largest non-profit, non-sectarian hospital in the state. With the number of train and bus options available, getting around Livingston and the tri-state area couldn’t be easier. CoachUSA provides daily commuter service into Manhattan. The NJTransit system offers convenient service throughout New York and New Jersey, including service to such popular destinations as the Newark airport, Atlantic City, and Manhattan.


Art at the Office
On February 26, 2015, after months of planning, Manager Annette DeCicco and the BHHS NJ ownership team officially opened our office to the community with a superb Grand Opening Ceremony.   Over two hundred guests enjoyed the most delicious and creative finger foods, which were prepared and displayed with an elegant flair by Celebrated Foods of Maplewood.  Mayor Michael Silverman, Council Members Rudy Fernandez and Shawn Klein, and Deputy Mayor Alfred Anthony were in attendance to cut the ribbon that officially opened our doors with this premier event.

Steve Janett and Annette DeCicco spearheaded the planning and development of the new office, and worked diligently to see that the project was completed on time.  Through the generosity and foresight of the BHHS NJ Properties ownership team, the new office space was totally built new from the walls out.  Annette chose a Mid-Century Modern design for the furnishings and finishes, giving the new office a smart professional look.  She also oversaw the procuring of works from local and regional artists to create a true gallery of art within the office.

Works by Ekaterina ErmilinkaAndrey Tamarchenko, and Isabella Rupp, were obtained for the grand opening. The incredible paintings and glass works of these artists were professionally mounted throughout the entire office in a true gallery fashion, and lent a casual sophistication to the event. 

These three exceptional artists donated not only a portion of the sales of their works, but each also made personal contributions to the Sunshine Kids organization.  The art that was sold during the event, combined with contributions, raised a total of one thousand dollars for our favorite charity.

Members of the Livingston Symphony Orchestra attended, and filled the air with soft and beautiful background music for the entire evening.

The office is planning future events which will be scheduled about once every two or three months. Works of various artists will be displayed for guests to enjoy.  The events will be open to the general public, and light refreshments will be served.  We welcome all to attend and enjoy the changing display of artworks. If you would like to be notified of upcoming art events at our office, please use the following link, and we'll be sure to send you a reminder.
