Disgusted in Garwood

Yet another example of a town with the most unusual and backwards people you've ever met. I cannot understand how no one noticed this girl never leaving the house; especially in a town where the cops are rampant for giving parking tickets to parents who drop their kids off at school across the street from this house in the morning! How could you not notice behavior as bizarre as this? Most of the people in this town are so very nosy otherwise. This just doesn't make any sense at all. Just another reason not to move here.

The above comment could not be more off base.
I have lived in Garwood for years and don't find the neighbors to be at all nosy. In fact it doesn't surprise me in the least that this could be happening just down the block from me. Most folks tend to keep to themselves on this street.
oh no she didnt

I totally agree with the last 2 comments.. Garwood is your ideal community to raise children.. ideal peaceful town for senior citizens.. etc.. It is a very small town so like any other small knit town.. news travels fast but it is not to say that its because "most people in this town are so very nosey". I grew up here as well and now raise my children here.. I would not have it any other way. Its unfortunate when ANYTHING bad happens in ANY town.. but no reason to judge or talk down on a town because of that!! We do not want people like you to live here anyway in thinking like that =)

If any of these folks don't have a clue about the masses of parking tickets given by the police they either live in another galaxy or don't live here. It is common knowledge (the school even sent home warnings about this to parents), I have lived here ten years after living in Springfirld, Summit and mountainside. This is without any doubt the most backward group of low-class people I've ever encountered! They cannot get out of their blue-collar, archaic ways! Yes, sorry you are all very weird.

Sounds to me like you are just a miserable person and have nothing better to complain about. Garwood is and always has been a great town to live in... weird is living somewhere that you think others are weird and staying there. Move out... no one needs negative feedback based on nothing but a hypocrites opinion :-) weirdo

Sorry, you last three are very oblivious (yes, I can spelling it; I'm sure you cannot)to what goes on in this town. This is like Valley of the Dumb. Ask anyone in the neighboring towns. The Westfield and Cranford Police Departments laugh at the Departments in Garwood - you are jokes of the other communities. Surely you would like to improve your blue-collar backward ways? The only people you are attracting to the community is spanish-speaking renters. Sorry, I know of ABSOLUTELY NO ONE with a family who wants to move here - it is becoming more and more urban every day. Garwood people just cannot imagine they cannot compete or be equal to residents in other communities. You cannot; you are BACKWARDS.
