Moving to Hillsdale New Jersey?

We just Sold a Hillsdale Home to a family and they were quite excited about the prospect of moving into their new Hillsdale residence. When a Buyer purchases a home in an area they are not familiar with, there are many things to consider. The following are some important considerations when re-locating to a new area like the quaint Norman Rockwell-like town of Hillsdale New Jersey.Commuters may be concerned about public transportation. In the center of the town of Hillsdale, commuters will be happy to find the Pascack Valley Train Line as well as New Jersey Transit Buses on Broadway in Westwood and neighboring Rockland County Coach Buses to The Port Authority Bus Terminal and George Washington Bridge Bus Station in New York City. Should you arrive at the train early, you can pop into either the Starbucks on Broadway for a cup of their famous Joe or Ronnie’s Hot Bagels for a tasty bite to start your day off right!

A New Hillsdale Homeownerwith pre-school age children will want to consider the availability of Day Care. Loving Touch Nursery School located at 365 Broadway across the street from the Shop Rite in Hillsdale offers many programs for pre-school children. Call (201)722-8500 to schedule a visit to the facility. Or a private school at 460 Hillsdale Avenue in Hillsdale – St. John’s Academy offers Pre-K through 8th grade classes.

When evening falls and the adult community comes out to kick back and relax, there’s a Hillsdale Nightlife with Restaurants like the popular and nostalgic Cornerstone located on Broadway directly across from the Hillsdale Train Station. You’ll feel like you just took a giant step back in time to an old English style pub from the turn of the century. A fun feature is the flashing traffic lights that go off each time a train goes through the Hillsdale Train station.

Although the evening atmosphere appeals to adults, families are welcome here as well. The atmosphere is fun and the eats are mm…. mm….good!
