NEW JERSEY - As we happily ring in the New Year, Garden Communities is ringing in their next member of The Golden Residents Club.  Members of this elite club have resided in their communities for 50 years or more, thus becoming cherished members of the Garden Communities family.   Arvo Langam has recently become the newest member and Garden Communities is celebrating Arvo’s loyalty by awarding him one-year free rent.  Garden Communities acknowledges that the satisfaction of each and every resident has been their primary focus for well over 60 years.  These wonderful patrons are what have made Garden Communities continue to grow and prosper and, in turn, have made their communities so successful over the decades.

 50 years ago, Arvo started his search for a home in New Jersey.  He did his research, and after visiting seven different communities, he decided that London Terrace in Old Bridge had everything he was looking for.  He worked at the hub at UPS, in Maspeth NY for 25 years, and loved that London Terrace was located near major roadways, providing many options for his commute into NY.  He also noted these residences came with a deck, and the sizes of the rooms were much larger than other communities.  The value and location are what sold him on London Terrace, and he has stayed ever since. He thought of purchasing a house but realized living at London Terrace was maintenance and stress-free.  In turn, that allowed him the time to visit friends in South Jersey, family in New England or just to pursue one of his many hobbies.  Being within walking distance to shops and supermarkets was also an added plus.  On his walks in the neighborhood, Arvo enjoys chatting with neighbors and is always there to lend a helping hand with jumper cables, or whatever assistance is needed.  On a nice day, Arvo loads his bike on his car and takes a short drive to Cheesequake State Park to bike on many of the scenic trails.  On occasion, Arvo brings his binoculars, as bird watching in the park is fascinating, with many unusual birds inhabiting the park.  In his spare time Arvo’s inquisitive mind loves working on his extensive clock and watch collection, keeping them running in tip-top shape.  He loves taking things apart to see how they work.  He also has a prized audio collection and has now started to work on computers.  A total sports enthusiast, Arvo enjoys all sports from the Olympics to watching a Rangers game with his buddies.  London Terrace has been fortunate in having Arvo as one of their longest residents and looks forward to many more continued years of partnership.

 In addition to London Terrace, several other local opportunities await for those wishing to become members of the Garden Communities family.  Evergreen Meadows, located in the heart of Edison NJ, is a prime example.  This quaint community features hardwood flooring, 24-hour emergency maintenance, and easy access to NYC public transportation.   If you are looking for additional space, or a townhome residence, Parkwood Village, in South Amboy, might just be the perfect place.  Boasting up to 1820 square feet and steps away from the Old Bridge Park and Ride, this commuters delight is also nearby Routes 9, 34, 35 and the GSP.  Additional amenities included are a sparkling swimming pool, barbeque, and picnic areas, as well as playgrounds for the kids.  Also, located in the heart of Central New Jersey, is Millbrook Village in Edison Township.   These spacious residences offer opportunities for extra dens, which are perfect for virtual learning as well as working from home.  For those who desire pet free communities, Millbrook is the perfect fit.
