Hi Ihopje,

As a previous resident of West Orange, I can tell you that before I move to the area, I was drawn to it because of the following reasons:
The convenience of commuting into NYC.
The greenery and scenic views
The diversity of the community and access to various sports and recreational activities.

Being single at the time, I decided to drive around the area to witness the above, and I made my decision to make the move to West Orange.

If you decide to make West Orange your home, you will be in good company with the likes of Whoopi Goldberg, other celebrities and entrepreneurs that are also residents.

Just to eleborate and what my partner ,Karen Abramson wrote earlier. In addition, the area is an easy commute to NYC whether by train or bus. Just minutes to Newark airport. We have great resturants in the area, ice skating rink, Turtle Back Zoo, Paper Mill Play House. People are friendly and the school system are good to excellent. Oh! and the Short Hills Mall is nearby. As Karen and I are re-location certified and have lived in the area for some time we'd be happy to show you around.
You'll love living here!
All the best,
Sharon Avram
