What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?

Allendale

We've only lived here since June, so don't participate in any clubs yet. I know from reading up on the town though that there are several (i.e. PTA, Garden Glub, Junior League etc.)

In terms of religious, racial, economic and cultural diversity, are the people of this city or town diverse? Are they accepting of differences? Describe.

The town is not very diverse (mostly white upper middle class) so I don't know how accepting they would be.

What are the main industries in this city? What types of career opportunities commonly exist? How do most people find new jobs?

Most people commute to NYC.

In general, what are peoples' priorities in this city? For example, do lives revolve around work, family, socializing, sports, etc.?

If a friend of yours was thinking of moving to this city or town from far away, what other advice would you give them.

I think it's a wonderful area. All of the surrounding towns are also desirable towns to live in. It gives a country feel with very close proximity to NYC (15-25 miles depending on the town) so you really get the best of both worlds. Also, the school districts are very good. Only negative, real estate is extremely high priced due to proximity to NYC. Therefore, you're paying a lot for a small house and yard. However, most people feel the trade off is worth it.
