Rockaway is a lovely town. It is divided into two sections, Rockaway Township, near Route 80 and the mall, and Rockaway Boro, with a quaint Main Street area, small shops and restaurants. I am sure you would be quite happy there.
I have worked with several people and helped them to find homes in Rockaway. I would be happy to help you as well if you'd like. Just email me or give me a call on my cell phone. 201-602-4458.
