Crane’s Mill Community Updates

Why Crane’s Mill Residents Love Our Location!

Crane’s Mill is located in West Caldwell, New Jersey. The retirement community’s location combines secluded nature with a convenient Essex County location.

Crane’s Mill residents love our location—it’s surrounded by nature yet close to everything.

‘459 Passaic Avenue’ sounds like a standard enough address. However, it’s anything but ordinary. Home to Crane’s Mill Continuing Care Retirement Community, 459 Passaic Avenue reads like a dream destination for those who like nature AND the allure of being in the heart of all the action.

The Crane’s Mill campus is situated on 48 beautiful acres with a Certified Wildlife Habitat and a picturesque pond. In addition, there are walking trails that lead to West Essex Park—a 1,361 acre park which is home to numerous trails, the Hatfield Swamp, and so much more.

Of course, that’s if you head west. If you leave the community via the main exit, you come to Passaic Avenue, which leads to the Caldwells to the North and Livingston to the South. In the Caldwells in particular, Crane’s Mill residents find themselves only one mile to shopping (Shop-Rite, Stop and Shop, Marshall’s, TJ Maxx, CVS, and many small shops, just to name a few), restaurants (Italian, Chinese, Japanese, American, and more!), and public transportation to New York City is across the street. Plus, downtown Montclair is only about 5 miles away, home to many acclaimed restaurants, shopping, and the Montclair Art Museum.

What’s more, Crane’s Mill is close to the Paper Mill Playhouse, Yogi Berra Stadium and Museum, the Turtle Back Zoo, the New Jersey Performing Arts Center, and countless other cultural attractions, malls, and movie theaters.

Then, when residents return home to Crane’s Mill, they’re back in the serene, quiet setting that feels like miles away from anywhere—yet it’s only one mile away from everywhere.
