Bloomfield NJ, an Essex County commuter town of NYC is bordered by Montclair and Glen Ridge to the West, and is closer to Penn Station than Glen Ridge or Montclair – the shortest commute scenario can take as little as 28 minutes (if transportation is on schedule). Bloomfield Township is long and narrow – about five miles long and one mile wide. Brookdale Park to the North, (shared with Montclair though mostly in Bloomfield), was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted of Central and Prospect Park fame, and is the third-largest park in Essex County. Watsessing Park, which is the county’s fourth-largest park is split between Bloomfield and East Orange, though about 60% of it is in Bloomfield. Watsessing Park has sports fields and a large dog park for the canine set. These two parks and eight others afford Bloomfield lots of public green, and offer a scenic backdrop for recreation and activities. Bloomfield’s housing stock is comprised largely of pre WW II homes including Colonials and Victorians and some post war including Ranches. While the ample food scene in Montclair is nearby, Bloomfield has its own rather extensive array of cuisine from around the globe. A charming and alternative to Montclair and Glen Ridge, price points for a single family home in Bloomfield can range from $200,000 to under $1,000,000, with an abundant inventory in the lower range.
