I have been living in "Upper Irvington" yes Upper Irvington for over 25 years and it is not blending into the city as one of our viewers have mentioned. If you don't live here don't offer any views. It have been very quite in my neighborhood, never had any major problems and also raised my son here. Surprisingly, not what people want to expect because it's close to a big city Newark, which is becoming more advanced in its later days. Other towns are good, such as Bloomfield, West Orange, South Orange. These are other areas close to NYC. We also have a new mayor who is very assessable to the people and yes the old mayor was horrible, but the new major is awesome! He walks the streets in the neighborhood to receive and answer any complaints.
