Kudos for Montclair and Church Street in particular as a great place to dine, walk and shop.
Yes, Montclair has been named a semi-finalist in the ‘Great American Main Street’ Award which will be announced in March, 2015. Westfield in 2004 was the last time a NJ town was a winner.
Also, the American Planning Association-New Jersey Chapter (APA-NJ) has named Church St in Montclair a ‘great place in NJ’.
Wide sidewalks, comfortable benches, window-shopping opportunities, alfresco dining, and outdoor entertainment are all enjoyable features of the block.
