Love to Live in West Orange

If you live in West Orange, you already know this; if you are thinking of living in West Orange, you should know this:

West Orange is a very large township with several neighborhoods. It also is HOME to some of the most interesting and notable sites with things to do for all ages.

My favorites are taking in the view at Eagle Rock Reservation where you can get a panoramic view of NYC and all its splendor as well as seeing the lights of the Freedom Tower at night. You will also be reminded of 9/11 as there is an incredible monument and tribute to those that were lost in that horrific act.

For those with inquisitive minds, how can you not get your fix at the Thomas Edison National Historic Park. Come explore the life works of a genius that accumulated over 2,332 worldwide patents. You can get a glimpse into some of the creations we can't live without, like the light bulb.

Then, if kids are involved or you simply love a great zoo, the Turtle Back Zoo is a great place to hang out for the day. When you are done with the zoo, you can either take in some mini golf, take a spin in the paddle boats, experience a high-line adventure or simply sit back and enjoy some food and drink at McCloone's Boat House.

Thinking this town may be your destination?

The township is marked by an eclectic mix of neighborhoods and housing types, which roughly correspond to the township's geographic features. Generally, the township has four distinct neighborhoods:

Downtown West Orange and The Valley

The oldest and most densely populated part of the township is Downtown West Orange, which lies in the low basin along the township's eastern border with the city of Orange and Montclair. Main Street, in this section, is home to the Thomas Edison National Historical Park, as well as the municipal building, police headquarters, and a branch post office. The West Orange Public Library is located on Mount Pleasant Avenue in this section, just west of Main Street. Downtown West Orange is laid out in the pattern of a traditional town, and is formed around the western termini of two major east-west arteries of the Newark street grid: Central Avenue and Park Avenue. Downtown West Orange has the most urban character of the township's neighborhoods, while the Valley is home to a growing arts district, the West Orange Arts Center, Luna Stage and a significant African American community.

The First Mountain (which encompasses The Gregory section of West Orange)

West of Downtown, the neighborhoods of West Orange become increasingly suburban as one ascends the steep hill of the First Watchung Mountain along Northfield, Mount Pleasant, or Eagle Rock Avenue. The housing stock in the neighborhoods of Hutton Park and Gregory is a mixture of Victorian, Jazz Age, and Tudor-style houses; large estates; garden apartments; and post-World War II modern houses. The Victorian enclave of Llewellyn Park, one of America's first planned residential communities, is also located on the First Mountain, having been created in 1853 as a site for country homes for the wealthy from New York City.[38] Many blocks on the First Mountain have sweeping views of the Newark and New York City skylines.

In fact, there is a great home for sale with a newer renovated kitchen, master suite with 3 more bedrooms and an office, a large front porch to enjoy and a park-like backyard. 260 Gregory

Pleasant Valley and Pleasantdale

Beyond the high ridge traced by Prospect Avenue, West Orange becomes a patchwork of post-World War II suburban neighborhoods, interspersed with pockets of older Victorian homes, as well as golf courses, professional campuses, and shopping centers. Pleasantdale, a walkable business district in this part of the township, includes a number of restaurants, office buildings, and houses of worship. Pleasantdale is also home to a significant Orthodox Jewish community.[39]

The Second Mountain

Finally, the westernmost section of West Orange lies along the eastern face of the Second Watchung Mountain, and includes large portions of the South Mountain Reservation. The housing stock in this neighborhood resembles that of Pleasantdale, as well as those of the adjacent suburban townships of Millburn and Livingston.
