Thomas McCarthy's The Station Agent (2003) was filmed at a number of distinct locales in Rocakway, NJ.
Thomas McCarthy's The Station Agent (2003) was filmed at a number of distinct locales in Rocakway, NJ.

Nestled within Morris County is the Borough of Rockaway, with a friendly downtown and quaint neighborhoods within its 2.1 square miles. The Borough of Rockaway is comprised of a spirited closely-knit population of approximately 6,500 residents and is a stone's throw away from the major highways, including Routes 80 and 46. In its olden and golden days when its mining heritage was in full swing, it was still referred to as Rockaway Village, a portion of Rockaway Township. Before it officially became established as a separate Borough in 1894, residents used the Morris Canal for travel and commerce. Today, there are plenty of roadway arteries and mass transit, such as the Lakeland Bus Lines, to still help transport residents to neighborhoods nearby and places outside of the borough, including Manhattan.

Moving to Rockaway

Rockaway is a destination where you can live tucked away in a peaceful bedroom community and also be close to many places to see and things to do. Fortunately, moving to Rockaway can be an easy move, as long as you come prepared with a few items and preferences.

Assessing Your Options

Before you select a residence, it's important to assess whether it is more feasible to rent or buy and then, which type of home you are seeking. Would you prefer one of the vintage domiciles in town, with classic wraparound front porches and Victorian-style architecture or would you opt for something more modern and uniform in style?

Plenty of Choices

In Rockaway, once you determine what you are looking for, the hard part is over. Next, if you need help with exploring your options, seek out one of the many local realtors who know the area well, to show you around and take you to your potential homes within the most desired neighborhoods and apartment complexes. Among the many duplexes for rent to choose from, one can easily find apartment homes or house rentals from a month to month basis or long-term.

Making Plans

If you plan to focus on a rental property, it is best to have all your plans in order before beginning your search. Anticipate that a potential landlord will be seeking out information about you, including your employment and credit history, as well as references, to ensure you are the best candidate to live in their property. Be sure to organize the needed components for your rental application before embarking on the search for a residence, and the process will move much more smoothly. What if you own a pet? Does your potential new residence permit a dog or cat? If you bring Fido or Kitty along to your new home, remember you must be prepared to visit the Rockaway Borough municipal building to arrange for the licensing of your pet.

Other Considerations

Be geared up as well as you narrow down the prospective places to lay your hat, to have set aside a security deposit to secure your new home, as this is something required by most landlords. And if you've enlisted the help of a realtor, it is possible you will be paying their commission for the transaction -- another bit of funding also important to tally into your final total to close the deal.

Something for Everyone

There are a variety of housing options in Rockaway, whether you are a single professional, a young family, retiree, or anyone in between. Rockaway offers single-family homes, ranging from split-level ranches to sprawling Victorians. Apartments, condominiums, townhouses and more await you in the various neighborhoods dotted throughout Rockaway. Whatever you choose, whether it is a 1 bedroom apartment to a newly constructed home, you are sure to find a place in your price range that won't empty your wallet on taxes, as well as rents that won't break the bank.

Rockaway Neighborhoods
+

Though already a town where residents have the chance to get to know each other fairly well, Rockaway has a few living communities, each with it's own distinctive vibe. These small pockets within the town are distanced enough from the town center to prevent the feeling of being packed in like sardines, yet close enough to drive only a few minutes and arrive in civilization.

Lake Telemark: This is a rural neighborhood comprising most of the area of Rockaway. Most homes in this area are medium to large sized family homes.

White Meadow Lake: White Meadow Lake is a suburban area of the city, housing both apartment complexes and homes. The vacancy rate in this neighborhood is the slimmest in all of Rockaway, and most of the homes are owned.

Borough Center: This is considered the center of Rockaway. There's plenty of vacancy here in small apartment buildings and small to medium sized family homes. Most residents spend about 15 to 30 minutes commuting to work from here, and favor driving.
