Sarah, I am a resident of Paterson for 15 Years and a Realtor. Paterson is a great Place to LIve. Yesit is the third largest city in the State and it certainly does have many of the same issues that any urban city has in this country. The school system is run by the state and a new School Superitendent is in place as of May 1 and based on what I have read I think Paterson School Children are in for some good changes. I would love to hear from you if you have any questions.
PS I live in Eastside Park.... more
