Maplewood, village life right outside the city

Maplewood Village

Maplewood Village

Maplewood combines the charm of village life with the convenience of living just half an hour from midtown Manhattan and is a thriving commuter neighborhood. The town is often called “Brooklyn West,” which many NYC transplants see as an extension of the hip, cultured, community-involved lifestyle they had grown accustomed to in New York. Properties tend to be a bit smaller in Maplewood, which many of those living there are convinced lends itself to the tight-knit feel.

Maplewood is know for its diverse and welcoming community, a mix of artists, writers, bankers, lawyers, teachers, musicians, and chefs. The village, along Maplewood Avenue, boasts a vibrant collection of restaurants, bistros, coffee houses, shops and a movie theater.
