Posts Tagged ‘Photo: Village of Loch Arbour’

 

The Village of Loch Arbour, New Jersey was founded in 1958. According to the 2010 census, the population is 194. This photograph was obtained on a gorgeous June day at 7 pm—the “golden time” for photography.  The image shows a group of homes arranged in a courtyard.  It is reminiscent of Ocean Grove with historic houses going back to the early 1900’s.  There is a porch culture like ours.

I spoke to a family sitting on their porch having a drink.  The kids were doing cartwheels under a giant  tree, and we met Mom and Dad, who  is a volunteer fireman.  The common areas are beautifully tended, and all the neighbors share that expense.

It seems like the kind of a place that would be a setting for a Jimmy Stewart movie. I got the impression that this is a neighborly place, a place where memories are made.
