The Village of South Orange has long been known for its diverse stock of attractive residences lining peaceful, leafy streets. From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on October 14, 2017, an estimated 600 visitors will view the interiors and exteriors, collections, and landscaping of eight astounding private homes that they could previously admire only from afar.

Purchasing an admission ticket will permit visitors docent-guided close-up views of the décor, exteriors, furnishings, and gardens of eight special houses ranging from a post- Revolutionary expanded farmhouse to a neo-classic hybrid built in smartphone times.

Tour begins at the South Orange Performing Arts Center where each attendee will pick up a Guidebook/ map. SOPAC is just off South Orange Avenue at the train station. 11:00 – 4:00.

* Classic autos matching the vintage of appropriate homes will be parked at the properties.

* Free parking is available in the NJTransit/SOPAC parking lot.

Loan Brings Long Vacant Downtown Montclair Property To Life

Unity Bank provided a $637,000 Small Business Administration (SBA) loan to Montclair residents Ian Loew and Audrey Laurelton to fund the purchase and renovation of 42 Park Street in Montclair, which housed the Knights of Columbus for more than 80 years. The husband and wife team are co-owners of the three-story commercially zoned property, which has been vacant for about 10 years, and will be utilized for their businesses, a Pilates studio and a digital marketing firm.

Laurelton’s Equilibrium Pilates, currently operating at 427 Bloomfield Avenue in Montclair, will relocate to the first floor of the 3,000-square foot building at the corner of Park Street and Montague Place. Loew’s Lform Design will move from its 271 Grove Avenue office in Verona to the second floor of the building.

“We hope to complete our renovations and move in by the Fall,” said Loew. “This is a dream come true for us. We have two young children and love Montclair so to be able to live and work in town is a great opportunity. Unity Bank has been fantastic to work with and they could not have made the SBA loan process any easier.” Continue Reading

I'm struck by how much attention is being paid to the details of a parking lot, as opposed to the attention paid to the future impact of the monstrous projects being planned.
