14 Manor Road

Yes, a brook does run through it, down from the Montclair Golf Course and all the way into Verona Park. Brookdale has a lot of green space and not as many houses as other neighborhoods in Verona. Brookdale Avenue School has the fewest number of students of Verona’s four elementary schools (Laning, Forest and F.N. Brown are the others), and two decades ago it had so few that the town almost closed the school and sold the building. Principal Richard Rampolla now runs the school, which is one of two in Verona two offer Spanish beginning in the first grade.

What kind of homes can you find in near Brookdale school? Everything from a starter condo to a tudor mansion, with capes, bungalows and colonials in between. And if you want to own a piece of Verona history, this is the neighborhood to shop in: The home that once belonged to the man who donated the land for Verona Park is now on the market.  Here’s what’s available in the neighborhood now from low to high:

18 Green Acres Drive: One bed, one bath condo. Second floor. $174,495.
