Nutley is a small town to the east of Montclair and closer to NYC. Though it doesn’t have a direct train line, it offers a super quick bus commute of twenty minutes (with no traffic) and easy access to highways. There are nearby train stations in Clifton (Delawanna) and Harrison (PATH to Wall St). Despite proximity to the big city, this is an intimate town—mostly offering charming colonials, built in the 1920s on streets with well-kept green lawns and lots of trees. (One of my favorite nurseries, Centre Ridge, is in Nutley, offering beautiful perennials and trees and knowledgeable help.) Nutley also offers some interesting restaurants, a great library, and a real downtown shopping district, with some new here and some old there—you can get a latte at Starbucks or walk to a spot that’s legendary among ballroom dancers: The Starlight Dance Studio, where people come from all over to take classes in the fox trot and tango.

Nutley had been the U.S. headquarters of Hoffmann-La Roche and was the site of the creations of the medications Valium and Librium, later becoming one of the major R&D sites for Roche, hosting major research areas in oncology, virology and inflammation. Roche announced in June 2012 that operations at the site would end in 2013, leading to the elimination of 1,000 positions at the company, and that the facility would be shuttered by year end 2015. Located in Nutley since 1929, the company had reached a peak of 10,000 employees on the site, and the $9 million paid by the company in local property taxes accounted for 9% of the township's tax revenues.
