We live in New Jersey right outside of New York City. We love our town and home! We are close enough to New York to take advantage of all the things we loved about the city when we lived there but far enough away to enjoy the quieter family life our town gives us.
Our neighborhood is actually a historic district so there are lots of beautiful old homes. Our home was built in 1900 and we knew the second we walked in that its where we needed to raise our family. It just feels like home to us. It's the perfect place to gather with family and friends and everyone feels welcome and comfortable.
It's an incredible place to live with a really wonderful and diverse community with lots of families and kids. We have great neighbors and friends nearby, and we really feel like we're part of the community. It's also beautiful with a cute downtown area and park (with the best sledding hill around for wintertime fun!).
