City Guide

Boonton
Although it wasn't chartered until 1867, the town has a history that dates back to 1761 when it was called "Boone-Towne," with props to Thomas Boone, the seventh Colonial Governor of New Jersey in 1760. He must have been special because barely a year later, he was appointed Governor of South Carolina. His replacement, Thomas Hardy, didn't get any towns named after him in New Jersey or anyplace else.

His replacement, Thomas Hardy, didn't get any towns named after him in New Jersey or anyplace else.

With only about 2.5 square miles and a U.S. Census population of 8,496 in 2010, Boonton should remain content as a sleepy town in Morris County, New Jersey. But the locals are quick to point out that such major corporations as Unigen for pharmaceuticals, Marsen for industrial manufacturing and Packard for antique automotive equipment provide ample support for the local economy. The town also provides historic buildings and annual events to keep its residents happy.

Moving to Boonton

Moving to Boonton by car and truck is no problem. Interstate 287 runs right through town and connects to I-80 for those fleeing New York City. There's even a commuter station -- you won't be able to put your furniture on this train but at least you can get back to work quickly.

Make sure your rental housing in Boonton has the appropriate licenses and meets city occupancy requirements. Violations won't throw you in jail or give you a fine, but depending on the severity of the problem, it may force you to vacate your unit as your landlord faces the consequences.

Check with the town for complete details but an apartment rental for one or two people needs at least 50 square feet for a kitchen, 70 square feet of room for one occupant's bedroom and an additional 50 square feet for two occupants. To ensure everything's on the up and up, the Code Enforcement Officer has every right to enter and inspect your unit at reasonable hours. So make sure your one or two-bedroom apartment for rent has all the right measurements, or you'll be in a pickle when the enforcement officer stops by.

It snows enough in the area that snow and icicle pics are a feature of the Daily Record news website during the winter months. So avoid transferring to town during the cold season. Summer's usually better with temps ranging from 63 to 85 degrees in July. Oh, and don't mind the rain. Precipitation is usually between four and five inches almost every month.

Neighborhoods in Boonton

The town fathers (and mothers too, presumably) like to brag that you'll find "single and multifamily homes, apartments, condos, townhouses and restored homes representing the Colonial, Victorian and Contemporary Eras." You've got the following neighborhoods to choose from.

Southern: The big deal in this neighborhood is that it straddles Boonton Reservoir. No, there aren't any homes lining the shoreline but if you get a New Jersey fishing license, you can catch small-mouth and large-mouth bass in the waters. I-287 runs right through here, if you're looking for fast commutes to the bigger cities.

Main Street: "Charm" is relative but this neighborhood is loaded with it. Shops, bars and restaurants entice from Victorian wood and brick facades as you walk down Main Street. Uzbekistana is easily the most exotic foodie haven, offering traditional Uzbek dishes. Grace Lord Park bids you to sit a while in the landmark gazebo before following the Rockaway River to marvel at Boonton Falls. Needless to say, a whole lot of trees can make you feel like you're in a forest instead of a settlement.

Northern: This neighborhood is bigger than the other two combined but most of the area consists of trees. Apartments are nearly nonexistent so if you want to live among the quiet, you'll need to find a rental house. The Rockaway Valley Aerodrome Fields used to host airplanes, but its large space is now popular for events and athletic competitions. Several bodies of water, such as Lake Tumble-In and Dixons Pond, can keep you splish-splashing away during summer heat.

Top Apartment Communities

Cornelia Street Apartments: This is an example of a small building that dominates rentals in the southern neighborhood. The one-bedroom apartments are set in a Victorian-style structure complete with a small tower. This place is set right in the middle of the Historic District, so you're walking distance to shops and eateries.

56 Lorraine Terrace: You can get up to three bedrooms here with hardwood floors and two assigned parking spaces. Forget about all bills paid. Your one-year lease only covers sewer and water. In addition, you and the other tenants are responsible for clearing the snow off the front steps and parking areas.

Living in Boonton

When you're new in town, you need to start in the past by visiting the John Taylor House, conveniently located on Main Street. Aside from containing all kinds of historical goodies, this Victorian Gothic and Colonial Revival structure is where the Historical Society members meet. They can clue you in on the numerous walking tours that explain the town's history.

Maybe you'll stumble into one of half a dozen galleries that also line Main Street. Broadfoot and Broadfoot, for example, presents an eclectic collection of sculpture and paintings by living artists. Electric Lotus Tattoo will be happy to create custom artwork directly on your skin. If you prefer performing art, Darress Theater showcases concerts, comedy, theater and film on its original vaudeville stage.

To get your body moving, join the classes and activities sponsored by the Recreation Committee. Mom can train for a 5K run, Dad can learn tennis and junior can master ice skating. The town boasts outdoor recreation areas, including Pepe Field, which has a baseball field, basketball court and walking track.

As for regular events, a Sunday in May celebrates a Weekend of Art, so you can enjoy demonstrations and lectures in local galleries. In June, the farmers market opens on summer Saturdays to bring you locally grown goodies. During that same month, Dog Daze Unveiled is all about showing off your prized pooch on Main Street. Come August, regular car traffic isn't allowed on Main Street, so that classic and custom vehicles can go on display. The Chocolate Stroll in December sees businesses opening late and serving up chocolate for some small-town socializing.

Grace Lord Park bids you to sit a while in the landmark gazebo before following the Rockaway River to marvel at Boonton Falls. Needless to say, a whole lot of trees can make you feel like you're in a forest instead of a settlement.

Northern: This neighborhood is bigger than the other two combined but most of the area consists of trees. Apartments are nearly nonexistent so if you want to live among the quiet, you'll need to find a rental house. The Rockaway Valley Aerodrome Fields used to host airplanes, but its large space is now popular for events and athletic competitions. Several bodies of water, such as Lake Tumble-In and Dixons Pond, can keep you splish-splashing away during summer heat.

Top Apartment Communities

Cornelia Street Apartments: This is an example of a small building that dominates rentals in the southern neighborhood. The one-bedroom apartments are set in a Victorian-style structure complete with a small tower. This place is set right in the middle of the Historic District, so you're walking distance to shops and eateries.

56 Lorraine Terrace: You can get up to three bedrooms here with hardwood floors and two assigned parking spaces. Forget about all bills paid. Your one-year lease only covers sewer and water. In addition, you and the other tenants are responsible for clearing the snow off the front steps and parking areas.

Living in Boonton

When you're new in town, you need to start in the past by visiting the John Taylor House, conveniently located on Main Street. Aside from containing all kinds of historical goodies, this Victorian Gothic and Colonial Revival structure is where the Historical Society members meet. They can clue you in on the numerous walking tours that explain the town's history.

Maybe you'll stumble into one of half a dozen galleries that also line Main Street. Broadfoot and Broadfoot, for example, presents an eclectic collection of sculpture and paintings by living artists. Electric Lotus Tattoo will be happy to create custom artwork directly on your skin. If you prefer performing art, Darress Theater showcases concerts, comedy, theater and film on its original vaudeville stage.

To get your body moving, join the classes and activities sponsored by the Recreation Committee. Mom can train for a 5K run, Dad can learn tennis and junior can master ice skating. The town boasts outdoor recreation areas, including Pepe Field, which has a baseball field, basketball court and walking track.

As for regular events, a Sunday in May celebrates a Weekend of Art, so you can enjoy demonstrations and lectures in local galleries. In June, the farmers market opens on summer Saturdays to bring you locally grown goodies. During that same month, Dog Daze Unveiled is all about showing off your prized pooch on Main Street. Come August, regular car traffic isn't allowed on Main Street, so that classic and custom vehicles can go on display. The Chocolate Stroll in December sees businesses opening late and serving up chocolate for some small-town socializing.
