Buying A Home Near F.N. Brown


Share post:

58 Fairview Avenue

The F.N. Brown elementary school district has perhaps the greatest real estate diversity of any Verona neighborhood, from the smallest capes to the largest, and most expensive, homes in town. Just one exception: while the Laning, Forest and Brookdale districts each have a few condos, there are none in F.N. Brown.

Dr. Anthony Lanzo, the principal of F.N. Brown, has dubbed his students “The Bees” and there certainly is a lot of buzz in and around the building, which contribute to its strong state testing scores in language arts and mathematics. F.N. Brown offers Spanish classes to its students, beginning in first grade.

If this sounds like your kind of school, here are the current listings, in order from lowest to highest priced:
