We seek to have happy arrangements & good communications with anyone interested. We also have a sense of humor. We appreciate thoughtful conversations. And quiet evenings. Please do not talk loudly on your cell phones in our house after 11:00 p.m. - 7 a.m. as it disturbs our dream time in the Dream. We value our beauty-renewal sleep time.

The Neighborhood

We enjoy the trees & greenery and closeness to the woods in the midst of a suburban-city area with Shopping Malls, doctors, & hospitals proximate and our big back yard & garden.
It's not far to go to pick up groceries or anything from our house. At night, the neighborhood can get very quiet especially in winter season.

Getting Around

We already listed it. Do read the above. You have NJ Transit trains going into Hoboken, NYC, Ridgewood, Allendale & all over nearby our house you can get the trains. Or the buses down the street from here. The trains are by far most convenient to getting into NYC. Or call a cab with an APP , UBER, or hire a limo from here.
