Brooklynites: are you thinking about buying a Maplewood home, but you’re not sure yet? Next question: do you like trees? Do you go to Brooklyn Botanic Garden and Prospect Park and bask in the sun while push your stroller on Sunday afternoons? And while you’re pushing your stroller, do you think to yourself, “I wish I could have this everyday, and not just Sunday . . .” Well, think about this.
Let’s break down the name of the town, Maplewood. First word: Maple. A type of tree. Second part: wood, the stuff that trees are made of. And does Maplewood deliver on its name? Absolutely. There are: Norway and silver maples, Scotch maples, flowering cherry, honey and black locust, magnolias, pin oak, and buttonwood. Just to name a few. So, if you like trees, nature, walking around gorgeous, bucolic parks, yet still want the advantages of the urban lifestyle with booming arts and culture, and an outstanding school system, then a Maplewood home is the direct fulfillment of all those needs. Don’t just take The New York Times’ word for it. Take a look for yourself. Walk around the tree-lined streets, and wander into Memorial Park where you’ll bask in the twenty-five acres of serenity.
Brooklyn: springtime is here. The flowers are blooming. Love is in the air. There’s no better time to make the jump to Maplewood, the place that is literally made of trees.
