We love Cenzino’s in Oakland off of 202. We go to Trovato’s Due as well every once in a while in Oakland. Oh, and can’t forget Frank’s Pizza!


Theatre! Theatre! Theatre! Love any kind of theatre. I also like to play Sudoku. As for TV, I have three favorite shows: Fringe, Smash, and Once Upon a Time.


We haven’t vacationed in a while but we like to go to the city to the theatre or sometimes the museums; I also love the Jersey Shore.


My freshman year I went to and after that I went to Bergen County Vocational Technical High School in Hackensack. My two boys, one attended Indian Hills and the other went to . I think the schools in this area are wonderful. They are great with the kids, really on top of everything, up to date with their technology, and the teachers have always been very easy to talk to and get along with.

Right now I am concerned because they are going to be ripping up Franklin Avenue in July to fix a sewer and I am very concerned about what kind of effect that is going to have on .

Local Appeal

I love how this area is a total community — I really like that. I have lived here since I was 12 years old and it wasn’t always like this. There used to be a big separation between Franklin Lakes, Oakland, and Wyckoff, and now the high schools have merged, kids can go to either school, and it has really pulled the community together.
