Dear Future 185 Garfield Place Homeowners,

My husband and I bought our house on Garfield Place when I was pregnant with our first child. It is now 9 years and 4 children later, and we couldn’t be happier with where we live! Last year when I found out we were expecting twins we thought about moving, but ultimately decided to stay because we love the neighborhood so much. Our two older children have many close friends in the neighborhood and they all play together every afternoon after school. I feel completely comfortable with my older son walking to and from Clinton school by himself, and with both of my older children playing outside independently with their friends. This neighborhood is full of lovely families, diversity, and and real community feel. Our annual block party is the best!

When we first moved in we wondered if living so close to Boyden Avenue would be challenging, and it absolutely hasn’t been at all. In fact, we love being a short walk from Walgreens, a grocery store, and the elementary school. We can also easily walk to South Orange, or Maplewood when we’re in the mood for a longer walk.

At the risk of sounding hyberbolic, I really do think Garfield Place is a special street. I am looking forward to welcoming the next family who moves in!
