Hello Bonnie. I get asked this question a lot regarding particular neighborhoods. You should check out the crime statistics with the local police department. Additionally, consider driving around the neighborhood during different hours of the day and night and talking to residents. Who better to ask then those who live there? Realtors cannot comment on the desirability of an area. I always advise my clients who are looking to relocate to a new neighborhood, to complete their own due diligence.

As for schools, take a visit to the schools you are thinking of placing your child/ren in. Sit in on an actual class, talk to parents, students, etc.

I hope this answered your question! If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me by the ways below.

Wishing you all the best,

Hi Bonnie
Your new home is in the 2nd Precinct. Their web address is: and their phone number is
(973) 733-6080. I would give them a call, most officers are very helpful when a concerned parent calls .
Best of luck in your new home,
