I really like my town

I moved to Kearny in 2006. Five years later, after getting married, we moved to Lyndhurst, NJ and stayed there till we bought our house in Kearny in 2018.

Here are some of the things that I really like about Kearny, NJ

Location: Kearny's location offers many benefits for travelers and commuters. The town is conveniently located near major transportation hubs, making it easy to get around the area and beyond. The airport is just a short 30-minute taxi ride away, making it a great option for those traveling by air. Additionally, the Harrison Path Station and NJ Transit train stop in nearby Lyndhurst( offers free parking), providing a quick and easy 20-30 minute train ride into New York City. Kearny is also conveniently located near major highways such as the NJ Turnpike and Garden State Parkway, making it easy to get to other parts of New Jersey and beyond. The close proximity to neighboring towns like North Arlington, Lyndhurst and Rutherford also provides access to even more dining, shopping, and entertainment options. Overall, Kearny's location offers many benefits for those who value convenience and easy access to transportation options.



Events: Kearny has variety of events and organizations that operate in the town. Throughout the year, there are many events organized by local organizations, such as parades, carnivals, and tricky trays. These events provide an opportunity for residents and visitors to come together, celebrate, and have fun. From the Fourth of July fireworks to the Kearny Christmas Tree Lighting, there is always something going on in Kearny. These events also serve as an excellent opportunity for local businesses and organizations to promote their products and services. They help to create a sense of community and bring people together. Whether you're a lifelong resident or just visiting, Kearny's many events and community organizations offer a fun and engaging way to experience the town and get to know its people.


Parks: Kearny is also home to many parks, playgrounds, recreation fields and green spaces, making it an ideal place to enjoy the outdoors. For athletics, the recently reconstructed Gunnell Oval has Baseball, Football and Soccer fields along with Volley Ball, Tennis and Basketball courts in addition to a large playground. For dog owners, there is even a dedicated dog park where their furry friends can run and play off-leash. Even with all of these outdoor spaces, Kearny will possibly have more in the future. The Essex-Hudson Greenway Project will pass through Kearny, providing even more multi-use green space.



Walking: Kearny was Incorporated in 1867, well before the invention of the automobile, and the size and design make it a great walking town. Kearny Ave runs North/South through the middle of the town providing easy access to the majority of local businesses.  Whether purely for exercise, running errands, getting ice cream or coffee all can easily be done on foot. In fact, I believe that most students along with some parents walk to school every day. Having grown up in both walking friendly and car dependent towns, it is nice to have the option to walk.  

Food:  Kearny is a town with a rich culinary scene. From cafes to bakeries to restaurants, there is no shortage of options for those seeking a delicious meal. One of the standout features is the variety of cuisines available, with offerings from Portuguese, Brazilian, Peruvian, Mexican, Italian, Japanese and more. Whether you're in the mood for a spicy Mexican dish or a delicate sushi roll, Kearny has it all. Additionally, the availability of high-quality bread at affordable prices is a real treat for anyone with a love for baked goods.  Some places that I frequently enjoy are
