"Beautiful Architecture"

Glen Ridge NJ is primarily single family homes built in the early 19th century. It is 99% residential with a small downtown area with a post office, train station, high school and Fitzgerald's a local pub servicing Glen Ridge Residents since 1928. Glen Ridge has a historic ambiance preserved through the gas lamps which line the streets in town and the Glen Ridge Historic Society. Some of the most famous 19th century architects have touched the landscape in Glen Ridge. Among the most noted is Frank Lloyd Wright ( famous for the Prairie Home, which is found throughout the town).

Glen Ridge has a fabulous , small school system, consistently ranked in the top 10 % of schools for NJ which attracts local New York executives and their families. The town can be found on the Montclair-Booton Train Line. For convenience the town also offers a local jitney service to the Ridgewood Avenue train station, no parking is necessary.

  • Fabulous early 19th century architecture

  • taxes are on the higher end
