It's become a brand name, Montclair. But there are so many parts of town, from the urban City Center, to Watchung Plaza (which often feels like Brooklyn-west), to Upper Montclair (centered around Olmstead-designed Anderson Park). And a lot of people come to check out Montclair, and end up buying a home in Bloomfield, or Nutley, or West Orange, or Glen Ridge. In South Orange or Maplewood, Little Falls or Montclair Heights (Clifton).
While the schools change when you cross a town border, your access to what makes Montclair MONTCLAIR is only limited by your imagination.
