Discover Maplewood NJ
Living the Maplewood experience.
Sitting on the veranda of our 1895 Victorian, located on the edge of Maplewood Village, we observe varied street scenes that epitomize what it means to live the “urban suburban lifestyle”.
Commuters hustling to and from the train station, just across the street. Early morning bread and linen delivery for neighborhood restaurants. Kids falling off their bikes. A parent going on the all important Saturday morning bagel run. Folks enjoying the music of Cole Porter at the local theater. Dogs barking at our cat, Montague. Moms meeting each other for cocktails on a Thursday night. Fans attending a book signing at our local bookstore. And families meeting up to grab brunch on a Sunday afternoon.
Here, there is no big city living, but there is a warm neighborhood vibe – only, here, I know the names of each of our neighbors. Here is where you can find the old days existing side by side with progressive values. In New Jersey no less. And the word is out about real estate in Maplewood NJ; in October 2016, the Star Ledger/NJ.com named Maplewood NJ the ninth hottest market in New Jersey.
