Many new restaurants and shops have opened in the last few years and the area is definitely becoming revitalized.

Livingston has a diverse population of about 28,000 and continues to draw new residents every day.  With easy access to New York City, a terrific school system and unbeatable home prices, why not give Livingston a look?  You’ll be pleasantly surprised.
