Welcome to Montclair

With its tree-lined streets many first-timers mistakenly take Montclair (population 38,700) for a typical bedroom community—but this vibrant town is far from it. Consistently ranked one of the best places for the “rich and single” as well as for families and Manhattan commuters, Montclair has anything and everything a NYC transplant could ever want, including a prime location just 14 miles outside of city limits.
