Pompton Lakes, NJ –City Review

I love living in Pompton Lakes, NJ city. The serene environment is surrounded by beautiful lakes. The place has a variety of shops thus making it easier to do shopping. There is easy access to public transport, diverse restaurants and other social amenities. Although the cost of living and housing is high in this area, the place is safe, with a very friendly neighborhood.

The city is an education center, as the quality of education is advanced. The city has the best schools with friendly staff and teachers. If you are finding a town with a topnotch education then Pompton Lakes, NJ is the best place to consider.

The Best areas are near the lake where people can socialize and have fun as they enjoy the fresh air. The city has easy access to public transport as you can take around 30minutes to upstate New York or NYC. The town is glamorous, but I would say somehow expensive, you need some more cash to settle in the area.
