Montclair Makes Coolest Suburb in America’s 35 Biggest Metro Areas List

Montclair

Thrillist published an article over the weekend listing 35 cool burbs near a big city and Montclair made the list. 

The chosen burbs had to have three major factors:

  1. A good (or at least respectable) food/drink scene, with enough places to go close to home to not always have to trudge back into the city.
  2. Not so far away from the city that the commute is awful
  3. A place with a history or its own unique elements that separate it from just planned suburban sprawl

Sums up Montclair perfectly, doesn’t it? Here’s exactly what Thrillist has to say about our cool burb:

The Friends of Barnet is a community organization dedicated to fostering the relationship between Montclair, NJ, USA and our sister city, the London Borough of Barnet, UK. Originally forged amidst the Second World War, the relationship between Montclair and Barne became an official town twinning in 1981. Children from Finchley in the London borough of Barnet were evacuated to live in Montclair. To commemorate that event, the FOB and our sister organization the Friends of Montclair exchange both high school students and adults as part of a cultural exchange program on a regular basis.

This past weekend, a group of adults from Barnet were given a tour of our town and surrounding area.  They were treated to a Portuguese lunch in Newark-Iron bound, were given a tour of the Iris Presby house, and much more around town. They were also shown what a beautiful historic Montclair home looks like when they visited 88 Lorraine Avenue.
