      There are so many reasons I love living in Rutherford, New Jersey! There is so much to see and do. The business area has blocks and blocks of stores, restaurants, cafes, and boutiques. The area is quaint and charming with beautiful parks, and historic old churches and monuments. The streets are kept clean and litter free. Several times a year they have street fairs and sidewalk sales. There are fabulous restaurants, and the 24 hour diners make the best food! There is so much to do in Rutherford.

      I enjoy going to the MetLife Center, featuring many wonderful live music events. The Meadowlands Racetrack has live horse racing. It also hosts a large flea market, carnivals, and other year round activities! There is easy access to the major highways, and an excellent transportation system to New York City. Employment opportunities are excellent in Rutherford and in the nearby vicinity. I love being 50 minutes from the beautiful beaches of the NJ shore!
