The Caldwells, Including Essex Fells - 07006


The Caldwells

"The Caldwells" are a group of three Essex County municipalities which all have the word Caldwell in their name, Caldwell, North Caldwell and West Caldwell. All three are named after the Reverend James Caldwell, a Patriot who played an active role supporting the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War, most noted for his actions at the Battle of Springfield, where he gave the soldiers pages from hymn books to use as wadding for their rifle bullets. While each community has its own independent government, the term "The Caldwells" is often used to refer to the area, even on highway exit signs.

The three towns are located about sixteen miles outside of New York City. The most expensive borough is North Caldwell located east of Caldwell known for larger homes, younger in age with larger acreage. Homes sell between $800,000-$2,500,000.

Though today the Caldwell area is considered to be a suburb of both Newark and New York City, the area originally developed as its own individual, self-contained town and economy. Today, two-thirds of the town consists of Colonial, Split-level, Cape Cod and Ranch-style homes which is why Caldwell is noted fondly for its small town friendliness and family oriented environment. Its main street Bloomfield Ave, offers dining, nightlife and shopping. The area is home to Caldwell College. Routes 10 ,23, 46, 80, 280, Garden State Parkway, NJ Turnpike and other major highways are all less than 5-10 minutes away, making it a very accessible town for commuting to any part of the state.

At the new Community Recreation Center at One Provost Square, members can enjoy the pool, fitness center, basketball gym, babysitting facilities, locker rooms, group exercise classes, swimming lessons, personal training, and specialty classes like Red Cross certification training. There’s sports, dance and other classes for children including Summer Camp and the Cyclones Swim Team.

New Jersey Monthly magazine ranked Caldwell as its 3rd best place to live in its 2010 rankings of the "Best Places To Live" in New Jersey.

Grover Cleveland, the 22nd and 24th President of the United States, and the only president to serve two non-consecutive terms, was born in Caldwell on March 18, 1837. His father, Rev. Richard Cleveland, was pastor of the First Presbyterian Church. The Grover Cleveland birthplace — the church's former rectory — is now a museum, open to the public.

West Caldwell, characterized by its maze of residential streets winding through wooden hills, borders Caldwell on its northern and western boundaries. West Caldwell’s 10,422 residents enjoy a decidedly suburban atmosphere of a community that offers a myriad of services, yet takes pride in it small town, family minded appeal. West Caldwell offers a unique setting dominated by lovely single-family homes. Residential streets showcase colonials, split-levels, ranches, and Cape Cods. You’ll find older, charming, colonial hillside homes with beautiful sunset views as well as award winning modern designed dwellings in the more recently developed areas of town. West Caldwell is truly a place where diversity of terrain and architecture allows its residents many choices.

Essex Fells

Essex Fells is a small borough in Essex County New Jersey, with a total area of 1.4 square miles and a population of 2,162. Considered one of New Jersey's most prestigious and exclusive areas, Essex Fells is known for its winding rhododendron-lined streets, towering shade trees and fine grand estates on spacious lots.

Essex Fells was incorporated on March 31, 1902, from portions of Caldwell Township (now Fairfield Township). In 1981, Essex Fells became a township to take advantage of federal revenue sharing policies. On January 1, 1992, it again became a borough. Based on an ordinance passed in 1928, commercial activity in the borough is virtually nonexistent.A single three-story commercial building constructed to look like a house and two small workshops on a dead end street, is the entire commercial business district for Essex Fells.

Every thing else in the town is residential, with a high percentage being multi-million dollar estates on large property lots. The borough has no apartment buildings, multifamily dwellings, condos, office buildings or traffic lights. The only units available for rental are in carriage houses and other ancillary structures.

As of 2000, this small desirable community had 750 houses, many of which were custom built with many occupying lots several acres in size. In Essex Fells it is not uncommon for buyers to “knock down” an older home and build their own special residence, being careful to note the strict town ordinances demanding a high ratio of lot size / residential square footage. Unique and special, Essex Fells possesses beautifully designed Homes of various architectural styles from the Victorian era to stately stone and brick mansions of yesteryear. There’s an atmosphere of peace and grandeur rarely found in New Jersey.

Close to shopping and transportation options in the nearby Caldwells, Routes 46,280 and 10 are the major thoroughfares. There’s bus service to New York City and Livingston ensuring a convenient lifestyle. Among the many recreational amenities that are close to home are lush county parks, tennis courts, an in town private Golf Course, athletic fields, the 16-acre Walter Kidde Dinosaur Park, a skating rink, and swimming pools. Essex Fells has one elementary school and busses middle and high school children to the West Essex Regional Schools (located in nearby North Caldwell and shared with Roseland, North Caldwell and Fairfield).

Essex Fells is a decidedly white-collar borough of professionals with 96.18% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, [managers (23.65%), sales (17.82%), legal occupations (8.70%) and office workers.] well above the national average. Essex Fells is also a borough of artists. Essex Fells has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Essex Fells's character.
