If you know your boxing, you'll know the name Joe Louis. In fact, most people would recognize that name anyway, boxing aficionado or not. Louis is widely regarded as one of the greatest ever boxers, and was World Heavyweight Champion from 1937 to 1949. For part of that highly decorated and illustrious career, Joe Louis lived and trained in a certain borough called Pompton Lakes.
Pompton Lakes is, as just mentioned, a borough, and is found in Passaic County, New Jersey. The population hasn't grown much in the last couple of decades, increasing from just over 10,500 in 1990 up to the 2010 figure of 11,097, which means residents have been able to keep Pompton Lakes a secret -- until now. The borough is an outer ring suburb of New York City, with Midtown Manhattan about 20 miles to the south east. In fact, if you head up to the higher peaks of the borough, you'll be able to see the skyline of the Big Apple a way's away and, with it being so close, a fair number of the local community tend to commute in for work. There are three rivers that run through the borough -- the Wanaque, Pequannock and Ramapo rivers -- which provide the local people with a great deal of things to do throughout the year. With a mild climate with clear seasons, Pompton Lakes is a great place for anyone looking for a quieter and greener place to live within touching distance of New York. See more
Finding an apartment in Pompton Lakes that accepts your pet may not be easy, but it’s very possible. Keep in mind, most of the time you’ll have to pay a premium for bringing your dog along in your new apartment. Some apartments require you to pay monthly pet rent, others will ask for a non-refundable pet fee or a refundable pet deposit.
While landlords and property management companies have varying pet policies, most of them limit the number of dogs you can bring to your apartment and include breed and weight restrictions.
If your pet falls under some of the restrictions outlined in the pet policy, it’s still worth asking the landlord if they can make an exception for your dog. Preparing a pet resume ahead of time could help you build the case for your furry friend. Make sure to include information on behavioral training your dog went through over the years and proof of vaccinations. If you can, include references from your former landlord and/or neighbors.
