Living in this area was exciting, it's the perfect place for families to live. There are many public schools in walking distance. It's a diversity area with welcoming neighbors, low crime rate and great nightlife. The city has an urban feel and offers plenty of outdoor activities.
There is a host of Movie Theatres, amusement parks, restaurants, upbeat pubs, soccer fields and plenty of safe roads and parks for bike riding jogging/running. Winters here are beautiful when it is cold it is cold. During the fall, the weather is suitable.
Summers are hot and exciting; back when I lived there you could always find me at the mall or at the AMC Movie Theater or Kinnelon Cinema in Kinnelon New Jersey. One of my favorite places was the Garden State Plaza in Paramus I loved getting the Caramel Covered Pretzels at Wetzel Pretzel. If you are ever in the area, I highly recommend stopping by while you are visiting Franklin Park.
