As a regular person reading these posts, I do not find Tim's response in any way preachy, it was a direct answer and very proper. Some people like living in the burbs, or isolated in total peace and quiet, while some like living in a mixed community with a little life. Linden is kinda both, with good schools and decent people. great old Polish delis and small shops, mixed in with wonderful Pizza shops, ice cream, mom and pop shops, etc. You just have to go and see if it suits you.
