Hello bvr73 :)
I hope you have found a realtor here in the West Essex Community since your last post of 4/22/2012.
I can understand your need of direction comming from the Bronx ;) I actually lived in Washington Heights for 3 Years, near the Inwood section... wow do I miss Arthur Avenue :(
Living in NJ now for 8 years, I am extensivley involved in the community, educational infrastructure, Endowment for Education and other social / recreational activities which can truly help formulate a fair sense of direction to help guide you in your search.

I know of a very private town house end unit in North Caldwell... It's convenient to train, bus, shopping. Please feel free to call me directly if I could help you in your search.
Best wishes & kind regards,
Judith Amorim Dias
