Kalim, your Cranford pics are really reminding me of what a great place Cranford was to grow up in. I remember when that Artist's Framing shop was all brick, and it was PAINTED entirely purple...it looked hideous!

Chester's downtown is really cute.
So is Basking Ridge. I love those kind of downtown areas. They are adorable....

Here you go, Kate. These came out a little blurry, not sure why. These are the rowhouses right across from the Park on 9th Street. I have a bunch more, but man, they take forever to upload and re-size...

ALL purple??? Yeah, that would have been horrible.

I go to Mexico once in awhile and love the cool funky colored buildings in places like Merida. Some of the buildings in the downtown like this purple building really make the place look nice. I don't like a downtown that's all reddish brick for some reason.

I'm hoping more people can contribute their downtowns. Here's more from mine.

Victorian street lamps cast a warm glow as night gives way to morning along N. Union Ave in Cranford , NJ. The second store on the right with the red facade is Avenue East, one of the better Asian Fusion restaurants I've tried, although Wild Rice a couple blocks away is giving it a run for its money with less expensive fare. Satay is allegedly only $5 for 4 sticks, which is a bargain IMHO.

Flickr: Cranford, New Jersey (NJ) (Flickr: Cranford Township, New Jersey (NJ) - broken link)

The intersection of North Ave East and Alden St. The striking purple building houses the Artist Framer at 17 North Ave E, and in the distance you can see the roof of the Cleveland Plaza and the steeple of the Presbyterian church at the corner of N. Union and Springfield.




The Wachovia building, which was known as the Cranford Trust Building and built in 1912, looms over the town center, with picturesque and colorful stores lined up beside it.




The Cranford Train Station, showing Victorian lamp posts, same ones that dot the rest of the town.
This reminded me to get out there and start snapping pictures of beautiful Cranford in all of its spring glory!

Morristown and Ridgewood have great downtowns, but I have to say I am very impressed by the pics of Cranford. I had no idea it was that charming. I am being swayed by those pics.

Never been to Cranford but it looks very nice. But for my money morristown wins hands down

This is the best I could find of downtown quickly online.

Morristown Green - YouTube
This shows you are area around the green in 2009 and the building under construction is now completed and fully leased (and busy all day every day). South St is also very cool (cant find any good pictures)
