Located within New Jersey, United States, the borough of Montvale is located in the New York - Newark metropolitan area.
Montvale is quiet, as noise from the streets and other parts of the city is rarely an issue - although that is not the case around one of the railway lines. It is sometimes hard to get to public green spaces since they aren't well-spread out. Still, there are a few parks close by for residents to visit.
The predominance of single detached homes in the housing stock of Montvale is an important part of its character. This borough has a selection of unit sizes, ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms. Home owners occupy roughly 85% of the properties in the borough and 15% are rented. The median year of construction for houses in this borough is 1978.
Residents will appreciate that wherever their house is located in Montvale, primary schools are close by. In contrast, high schools are not particularly abundant and consequently tend to require a rather long walk to get to. Locals are served by public and private schools at both the elementary and high school level. When it comes to food, some, but not all, property owners in Montvale will reside within walking distance of one of approximately 10 supermarkets. There are also a limited number of opportunities for those who care about close by restaurants and cafes.
Driving is a great transportation option in Montvale. It is especially convenient to park. On the other hand, the public transit network in this borough is quite bad. Nonetheless, there is the Montvale Station with access to the Pascack Valley Line. No bus routes pass through the borough. This part of the New York - Newark metropolitan area is not very conducive to walking since few daily needs can be met without having to use a car.
