Walkable, urban neighborhoods are transforming how we live in N.J.

31, January 2017

via NJ.com — Imagine, if you will, a bustling streetscape of pedestrians set against the hubbub of
the quintessential downtown. It’s here you might picture new parents pushing
strollers down the sidewalk, millennials huddled at European-style cafes, and suit-and-
tie professionals streaming off a nearby train into the closest pub for a pint of
craft beer.

If this conjures images of Brooklyn, Hoboken or Jersey City in your mind, you could
easily be forgiven — in many ways, these are the hallmark illustrations of the style of
urban living that has drastically altered demographics and the way of life in dozens
of American cities. What you may not know, however, is that many of these same
traits are on their way to a community near you.
