Dumont, NJ: The Good Neighbor Place!

My favorite part of living in Dumont is all the amazing people that make up this town! Of course, that's only one of the great points about living here. We take pride in our excellent schools, low crime rate, keeping our homes in top condition, and making this a great place for everyone to live. Employment rates are impressive, and most everyone is happy with their careers, not just stuck in whatever job is available.

What do we have to offer by way of fun? Well with Yankee Stadium so close, that's a great place to enjoy sports activities. We also have Spyscape, a great museum where kids (and those of us who are kids at heart!) can learn all about special agent tricks, spies, hackers, etc. We also have the Kendo Academy, a martial arts school for kids of all ages, and an amazing restaurant called Brownsugar and Okra where you can get the best African fare anywhere! If you are looking for a place that has it all, you will be happy right here in Dumont!
