Hi, i live in St. Cloud and cannot comment on brookdale, but St. Cloud is a very nice, safe, family friendly place to live. As far a being "good" for a single women, i'm not sure. The location is "Central", you're close to South Orange and Montclair which i understand have nice lively downtowns and perhaps nightlife? Not sure that helps, but that's all i have.

St. Cloud itself is just residential, unless golf is your thing or you're friends with my neighbor who likes to throw parties. So if you're into the whole nightlife thing, it's not the place to be.

Default St. Cloud vs Brookdale Park

Both neighborhoods are residential, single family homes. Not the best for making or mingling with a lot of single friends. If that's not your issue, either one is nice. Property taxes in West Orange may be a little more than Bloomfield.

If you want to be closer to single people or young families, I would suggest certain West Orange or Verona condo buildings or parts of Montclair and Glen Ridge. Are you renting or buying?

I'm a little bit of both. I love to go out but I also love to cook, entertain, garden and I have a dog--so I love to be outside. I'm fairly social. Honestly, am looking for a friendly neighborhood.

It's my first house. I'm buying, not renting. I work in Midtown. I'd be moving from Manhattan, my budget it under $400K, and I'm looking for a 3 bedroom house with a decent sized kitchen (since I cook-ALOT).

and then to answer the other questions:
Briefly describe the kind of neighborhood you'd like to live in
(examples: families with young children, young, mature, artsy, diverse, safe, close-knit, block parties, etc)---l'd like a little bit of everything. Safe would be primary.

List three things that are important to you in order of importance.(examples: nightlife, outdoor activities, rural/urban, safety, downtown area, charming, new construction, proximity to XYZ, family oriented, easy parking, short commute, etc)-- again, safe would be key, decent commute and proximity to a park. I like to be outside.

thanks.

Brookdale area of bloomfield seems safe, but I do read in the paper about petty muggings in the park at night. Never happened to me though.
