Why Westfield? The schools are great and its central location is perfect for our lifestyle. It’s a good commute to New York City and Newark Airport. It has great outdoor activities nearby. It’s close to the beach, not too far from ski areas, and offers great parks.

Local spots: We take advantage of the farmer’s market all summer and fall. We often walk there, stop at Westfield Seafood, and head to Hershey’s Deli for lunch. It’s our kids’ favorite spot! We’ve been spoiled by all the great restaurants in downtown Westfield.

Weekends are spent: As professional photographers we are often both working. When we are home, we are usually at the kids’ sporting events. If we have some free time, we get outside with our dogs to get some fresh air and exercise.

Tell us more… Westfield shopkeepers and our neighbors have embraced our commitment to raising Callie, our Canine Companions for Independence puppy in training. As firsttime puppy raisers, we’ve had a great experience in bringing Callie out in public—from the grocery store to the Rialto, and out for dinner in town—the community has been wonderful.
