Montclair Center is the traditional commercial hub of Montclair, running along Bloomfield Avenue for more than a mile from the Glen Ridge border to Mountain Avenue. For the tourists, this means a cornucopia of shopping, antique shops, art galleries and bookshops. Montclair Center is classic and edgy, urban and urbane, but most of all- fun!
Antique lovers pop into Montclair Antique Center on Church Street or Jerry's Antiques on Glenridge Avenue. In addition to great shopping - art galleries and bookshops pepper the town: Gallery 51 on Church Street and the Montclair Book Center on Glenridge Avenue. The Montclair Art Museum is a place for high end art and student art. The museum houses an art school and serves as the town's cultural hub. Montclair is also the place to see live performances at The Wellmont Theater on Bloomfield Avenue. These exciting dichotomies are summed up in our tagline - Montclair Center: where the suburbs meets the city.
