If driving to a job in NJ was an option, may be I would have gone with Paramus.

Overcrowding in FL should be fixed by 2020 once the $25 million budgeted additional space/infrastructure is completed. The referendum was passed the voting last year.

Between what is the average class size in Paramus elementary schools. In fair Lawn, its typically 20/21 and 25 is considered overcrowding.
Paramus to me is an amorphous, shapeless American suburb. It has no core, no central street, nowhere to walk. It is bisected by busy highways. Some areas of it do have pretty houses and mature trees. But again, there is no where to walk and I think not every house even has a sidewalk. I am not interested in such an environment.

Yeah...”pretty” is not a word I would ever use to describe Paramus.
