Montclair, Church St. rocking “walkable downtowns”

church-street-wins

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.
