Co-written by Catharine Longendyck and Kathleen P. Galop, the book’s 226 pages of beautifully reproduced black and white images chronicle the historical roots of the Forest Hill Section of Newark, NJ, a remarkable residential community that has earned both national and state designations as an area of significant historical and architectural significance; Queen Anne, Georgian Revival, Colonial Revival, Vernacular, Richardsonian Romanesque, Spanish Eclectic, Mediterranean Revival, Chateauesque, Neoclassical, Tudor, Craftsman, and Italianate style homes grace the book’s pages and, in most cases, the tree-lined streets of Forest Hill.
And, as last night’s event made clear, the legacy of the Forest Hill’s past is in good hands as members of the Forest Hill Community Association turned out in force to purchase the book and to demonstrate their deep commitment to maintaining Forest Hill as the jewel of New Jersey’s largest city.
If you are looking for a home that can make you and your family very, very proud, without having to spend what would be required to purchase a similar home elsewhere in Essex County, you should look into Forest Hill. And, while you are doing so, don’t forget that Forest Hill comes with a huge, added benefit: a community of involved home owners that gives new meaning to the word neighborhood.
