Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice
is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one
might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether
shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Closter,
the Piermont Rd / Closter Dock Rd neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

do any of these things. But if you're among an exclusive crowd of wealthy

The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much

research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the
transience of its populace.
