Montclair, NJ

2 04 2007

Basic town overview: “Montclair is a community of about 39, 000 inhabitants. Never content to be merely a “bedroom community,” Montclair is nevertheless a family-centered town. Its heritage in education has been enhanced by its innovative public and private school educational programs and the expanded offerings at Montclair State University. Once again our hillside has become a haven for artists and writers. This is a seasoned community whose many old houses enhance its charm, yet at the dawn of a new century, Montclair remains alive to the spirit of the times” from Montclair Website.
