Glen Ridge got a nice shout out in the NY Times Real Estate section today.

In this family-focused town, leisure time often revolves around school activities and sports. Dining choices also skew to the casual and the family-friendly. Fitzgerald’s 1928 in Glen Ridge is a lively place where neighbors run into one another.

A senior/community center in the train station has a variety of programs. The outdoor community pool, built in 2003, cost $775 for a family membership in 2016, with a $1,250 initiation fee. Green spaces include Carteret Park, Freeman Gardens and several athletic fields. The county’s Brookdale Park is just north of Glen Ridge.

Also noted are the easy commute to Manhattan, the schools, and the proximity to Montclair’s restaurants and The Wellmont Theater.

Stopped by on opening day to take out a dozen empanadas. Very welcoming space, especially with the storefront glass open on a warm spring day and sidewalk tables available; and, the staff were warm and engaged. The empanadas are soft and pastry-like, rather than the harder crisper type. They got a thumbs up from the Morales family, who loves them a good empanada!
