Clifton, NJ - Small Town Feel In A Big City

I have lived in Clifton, NJ for almost my entire life. It is home and homey despite being a rather large city. Depending on where you live, each section has its own small town feel. On any summer day you will find neighbors sitting and talking outside, kids playing in the parks and the ice cream truck making its way through the streets. And on every Christmas Eve, neighbors gather outside their homes to wave as Santa Claus drives throughout the town on a float led by a police escort, to wish everyone a happy holiday. Clifton is ideally situated in New Jersey because it‘s close to NYC, the famed Jersey Shore, and the Delaware Water Gap. However you don't need to travel outside the city limits to do any shopping or dining because Clifton has numerous quaint shopping areas and eateries, notably the Tick Tock Diner, which has been mentioned on several food shows, and written about in articles. For those who love the outdoors, look no further than Garrett Mountain Reservation, a huge park with several miles of walking/running trails, basketball courts, picnic areas and a spectacular view of the city below and NYC beyond.
