Montclair is"Buzz"-ing

buzz aldrinOne of the many things I love about Montclair is its creative vibe: How many other suburbs can boast an art-house cinema, an internationally-recognized annual film festival, a jazz club, and a dozen or so art galleries?  Next month, though, my town will be focusing more on the sciences than the arts when it honors a hometown hero--astronaut Buzz Aldrin.

Aldrin was the second man (after Neil Armstrong) to walk on the moon. He is also a graduate of Montclair High School's Class of 1947, where he played on the football team. He'll be back at Montclair High School on June 2 to receive the first-ever "Key to Montclair" and see the unveiling of  a plaque commemorating his historic flight. The event is open to the public, and I'm sure it will be mobbed, but I'm definitely planning to attend.

As a Montclair Realtor who loves walkable communities, I can't wait to meet the man who walked all over Montclair before walking on the moon.
