I have lived with my parents in an affluent Bergen County town all my life. For me, Paterson NJ was a town that in the past I looked down on and was afraid to go to.
After meeting some people there, traveling the area, and an unfortunate financial situation, I am moving to Paterson NJ soon. I am attending Passaic Community College starting September 2009.
To me, a non-affluent 19 year old 'child', I feel Eva's soup kitchen (located at 343 Main St, serves free lunch) will help out a lot. Now, asides from rent, and laundry (which I can do for free in certain areas), my expenses are minimal. Also, I will be able to save on transportation to college.
Additionally, I am looking for input on things to do in paterson, community events, input on different streets/blocks/clubs/centers/parks etc. Your input is greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your consideration. If you have any questions, or are from the area, feel free to contact me.
