THE ‘BEST OF’

CARE AT SBMC AS WE GET READY FOR FALL, WE’RE CELEBRATING the best that our counties have to offer with Morris/Essex Health & Life magazine’s annual “Best of Morris/Essex” issue. And here at Saint Barnabas Medical Center (SBMC), we are celebrating being named one of the Best Hospitals in America by U.S. News & World Report for diabetes and gynecology. SBMC was also named high-performing (in the top ten percent of programs in the country) in treating colon cancer, congestive heart failure and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. This achievement follows SBMC being recognized as one of 41 hospitals in the U.S. to have achieved straight As from The Leapfrog Group for quality and safety. This issue brings attention to a common yet relatively unknown condition, exercise-induced bronchoconstriction (EIB). Many symptoms of EIB may present as asthma, such as coughing or chest tightness, especially after exercise or strenuous activity. But Killol Patel, M.D., SBMC pulmonary specialist, assures us that EIB is an unrelated condition, one that is easily treatable and doesn’t require the sufferer to refrain from exercise completely. Turn to page 28 to find out the symptoms of EIB—children are prone to it too—and to learn more. If you’re in need of some uplifting news, flip to page 30 to read about Maureen Zavocki, a patient whose fertility doctor recommended she come see SBMC’s Thad Denehy, M.D., when she learned she had a tumor on her ovary. Dr. Denehy not only removed Zavocki’s tumor with just a few small incisions (thanks to the state-of-the-art da Vinci robot-assisted system), but also gave her the option to freeze her eggs before chemotherapy so she could have the chance of conceiving a second child. Though it was a “whirlwind six months” for the family, Zavocki is now recovering well from her surgery and treatment and is looking forward to the future. As you read this month’s Morris/Essex Health & Life and discover the “best” places our counties have to offer, we hope knowing we’re one of the Best Hospitals in the United States provides you great comfort. Should you need medical care, you have peace of mind in choosing Saint Barnabas Medical Center.

WORKING WITH NUMBERS was never my forte, a good reason why I’m a magazine editor and not an accountant or an engineer. But there’s one time of year when adding and subtracting is actually fun (and it’s definitely not tax season). It’s become a late summer tradition to count all the ballots in our annual Readers’ Choice Awards and present the winners to you in our Best of Morris/Essex issue. Thank you to everyone who voted for their favorite places, from butchers and brunch spots to barbers and bike shops and much more. Turn to page 35 to see all of this year’s winners. This is also the time of year when many kids return to class. In the back-to-school spirit, we put together “We Knew Them When” on page 50. This piece spotlights 14 celebrities who learned their ABCs and lined up for cafeteria food in Morris and Essex counties. Speaking of eating, the recipes in “Lunches for Little Ones” give a healthful spin to three comfort-food classics—trust us, your kids won’t want to trade away these dishes in the lunchroom. Flip to page 62 for the easy-tofollow directions. Then on page 58, “Field Trips” details six vacation destinations where families can have fun and get a good lesson in history, science and more. Of course you’ll need time to relax after you’ve sent your children back to school. Our suggestion: Observe National Yoga Day and head to one of the many studios in our counties. In Local Buzz on page 14, we highlight five that we know you’ll like. We hope you enjoy all of the articles in this issue, and we wish everyone a wonderful fall. And please be sure to visit some of the winners in this year’s Readers’ Choice Awards. They’re your neighbors, and I’m sure they’ll be happy to meet you.

The Millburn Laser Center & Associates in Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery, founded by Eric S. Siegel, M.D., provides superior skin care to adult and pediatric patients for all conditions and diseases of the skin, hair and nails. A state-of-the-art facility includes a full spectrum of lasers to meet the individual needs of every patient. Interview conducted with Gail H. Mautner, MD What sets your practice apart? Every physician at The Millburn Laser Center is a board-certified dermatologist. We’re all well-versed in medical and cosmetic procedures relating to skin. Board-certified dermatologists offer patients the benefit of years of medical school, residency work and continued education. For example, we offer Mohs surgery to treat skin cancer that only highly trained dermatologic surgeons can provide.

What new technology do you have? We’re excited to have a new, innovative device, called Morpheus8. The minimally invasive device uses microneedling and radiofrequency technology to penetrate deeply into the skin and fat to rebuild collagen. It’s used to improve skin texture and tone, and for skin tightening. There’s no damage to your skin, zero downtime, results are quickly visible, and improvements can last for a year. Why would a young child need to see a dermatologist? We see young kids with eczema, warts, unusual moles, lesions and congenital skin conditions. Years ago, kids rarely went to the dermatologist. Today, a child doesn’t have to suffer with skin conditions if they see the appropriate dermatologist.

“It’s important to go to a board-certified doctor trained in dermatology for proper evaluation and treatment.”

NATIONAL YOGA DAY Amongst all the back-to-school and end-of-summer chaos, self-care tends to take a back seat this time of year. Perhaps that’s why September has officially been dubbed National Yoga Month. Whether you’re an advanced yogi or don’t know your downward dog from your child’s pose, there’s a yoga class for everyone right here in Morris and Essex counties…and the benefits are tremendous. “A steady yoga practice can bring a sense of ease and balance to your body and mind,” says Rebecca Frezza, owner of ZURA yoga studio in Montclair. “As you strengthen, stretch and tone your body, the focus on your breath will allow the mind to quiet, encouraging the release of deeply rooted stress and tension.” Here are a few top-rated studios in the neighborhood to check out during National Yoga Month. And who knows? Maybe you’ll like yoga so much it’ll become your new go-to workout. n INNER SPIRIT STUDIO

| WHIPPANY

Hot yoga is the heart of Inner Spirit Studio’s business, but they also schedule cycle, silk yoga, barre and aerial yoga classes should participants want to change things up. 190 RTE. 10 W., WHIPPANY, 973.797.9775 n BHAKTI BARN YOGA

| GLEN RIDGE, MILLBURN

This studio, with two locations nearby, focuses mostly on Vinyasa yoga, which synchronizes breath with movements. But they also teach other interesting techniques including Kundalini, prenatal, gentle, restorative, alignment-based flow and chair yoga too. 10 HERMAN ST., GLEN RIDGE, 973.743.1211; 158 SPRING ST., MILLBURN, 973.232.6227

n POWERFLOW YOGA

|

LIVINGSTON, MORRISTOWN

Most classes at this studio (which has a chain of franchises across New Jersey) are also primarily Vinyasa-based, but all of them are intense—in more ways than one. “The classes at Livingston Powerflow Yoga encourage and promote mental calmness,” says Nicole Dockx, studio manager at Livingston Powerflow Yoga. “And there is no judgment in our yoga studio. You do you!” 40 MARKET ST., MORRISTOWN, 973.998.6277; 155 S. LIVINGSTON AVE., LIVINGSTON, 973.994.0051 n ZURA

| MONTCLAIR

Book a strength, movement or hot yoga class at this local studio, all of which will strengthen your body and clear your mind. They offer Pilates, kickboxing and belly dancing classes as well. 18 LACKAWANNA PLZ., MONTCLAIR, 973.233.0414 n SOUTH MOUNTAIN YOGA

SOUTH ORANGE

Known for their warm, all-inclusive classes and friendly, knowledgeable instructors, SMY has straight-forward names for its sessions so you know just what you’re in for; basic, mixed level, intermediate or advanced (with “gentle” and “intro” classes thrown in for good measure). 18 S.

We already know Newark as one of Jersey’s most well-known, largest and oldest cities (see “Talk of the Town” on page 24 for more on the Essex County seat), and now it’s one of our most innovative too. Newark was chosen as one of 10 locations in the United States to participate over the next year and a half in a nationwide economic mobility project intended to address rising income inequality and declining economic mobility. “This national initiative to increase economic mobility will be a critical tool in our work toward achieving economic justice,” Newark Mayor Ras Baraka said in a statement. “It will be especially valuable in our efforts to provide free legal help to low-income tenants facing eviction.”

FROM FRANCE, WITH LOVE Opened this summer by Daniel Boulud alumni Dominique Paulin and Olivier Muller, Faubourg is an authentic French brasserie nestled in the confines of busy Montclair. Diners can enjoy a boozy selection from the wine cellar, socialize with foodies on the outdoor patio or feast on delicacies in the bi-level indoor space. Montclair only has a few French restaurants on the main stretch of Bloomfield Avenue, so Faubourg’s opening is groundbreaking for the area—and exciting for the locals who are itching for a delicious coq au vin. FAUBOURG, 544 BLOOMFIELD AVE., MONTCLAIR, 973.542.7700

COMFORT FOOD WITH A TWIST This is an alliteration we like the sound of: Bucco in Bloomfield is BYOB. The restaurant has been opened for just a few months but has already become a hot spot for traditional Italian fare like shrimp scampi and unique plays on favorites like lobster manicotti. Bucco also has daily specials like Monday’s lobster mac and cheese with bacon or Wednesday’s bacon-wrapped meatloaf, so it’s worth booking a table any night of the week (except Tuesdays, when they’re closed). BUCCO, 61 WASHINGTON ST., BLOOMFIELD, 973.566.6100

NEW AND IMPROVED The Montville Inn recently closed after centuries in business, but not for long. Chef Michael Cetrulo, the owner of Scala del Nonna in Montclair and Il Mondo Vecchio in Madison, has purchased the property and plans to open it this month under a new name and restaurant concept. The establishment will be similar to Cetrulo’s others, with a few additional dishes and fun twists. 167 RTE. 202, MONTVILLE

SAILING INTO FATHER HOOD

While West Orange native Akram Omar served our country in a training exercise that took him to a series of Baltic countries, the biggest adventure of his life was waiting for him at home in New Jersey: newborn twins! Before the naval petty officer 1st class could meet his new bundles of joy, Omar first served in June as a boatswain’s mate on the USS Fort McHenry in an annual international Baltic Operations exercise (or BALTOPS, for short). According to U.S. Navy officials, the program, which included personnel from 18 other countries, is designed to sharpen the skills of its participants and demonstrate unity in protecting the Baltic region. Through it all, the new dad cites his state roots as his secret to successfully navigating the Navy life. “Growing up in Jersey,” Omar said, “I learned the importance of being patient.” A lesson he’ll undoubtedly get in parenting too!

A HOTEL CLOSE TO HOME

Views of Manhattan without even crossing the bridge? MC Hotel in Montclair is making that a reality for us North Jersey folk. The 159-room hotel under the Marriott umbrella, which recently opened, is the town’s first full-service hotel in decades. But locals are perhaps most excited about the rooftop lounge and bar, which boasts sweeping views of the NYC skyline (and cocktails, of course). Also not too shabby is the hotel’s lobby-level Allegory Restaurant, run by German chef Daniel Kill and with a focus on healthful vegetable-heavy, family-style dishes. THE MC HOTEL, 690 BLOOMFIELD AVE., MONTCLAIR, 844.624.6835

to the National Agriculture Statistics GARDEN According Service, New Jersey is the fourth-largeststate for floriculture in the country, STATE, grossing which is basically a fancy term for flower farmINDEED ing and arrangement. But why has this niche

area of gardening risen in popularity in Morris and Essex counties in particular, and what floriculture trends can we anticipate going into the fall season? Peter Nitzsche, agriculture and natural resources agent at Rutgers’ Department of Agriculture and Natural Resources in Morristown, shares his insight and tips on how—and why—to get on board with this blossoming trend:

WHY IS FLORICULTURE ALL OF A SUDDEN SUCH A BIG THING IN OUR AREA? While almost everyone appreciates attractive flowers, landscape plants and turf can be somewhat of a luxury in bad economic times. Since our economy is doing well, residents have more money to decorate and landscape their homes with horticultural crops.

WHAT FLOWERS ARE IN SEASON FOR FALL?

Traditionally, chrysanthemums are a big flower crop for fall. Mums have been bred to come in a huge range of sizes, shapes and colors, and different varieties bloom from late summer until the first hard freeze. Flowering kale and cabbage have also become a big seller as decorative fall foliage plants—they are typically treated as annuals like mums and add interesting colors and textures to fall displays.

WHERE DO YOU RECOMMEND PEOPLE SHOP LOCALLY FOR FLOWERS?

I typically recommend gardeners look to local farms, nurseries and garden centers for the best plant quality. There are certainly bargains at larger stores, but sometimes you get what you pay for.

WHAT IS ONE SIMPLE TIP YOU WOULD SHARE WITH FLORICULTURE NEWBIES?

WORTH THE WAIT

If it feels like you’ve been awaiting the grand opening of the stores at Waterview Marketplace in Parsippany for years, well, you’re not wrong. The shopping center has been in the works since 2012, and was supposed to open in 2015! But it’s all happening now, folks, as many of the stores in the shopping plaza are open, including Homesense, Ulta, The Paper Store, DSW and Shake Shack. Whole Foods, Orangetheory Fitness, Med First and B.Good’s opening dates are still up in the air, but we’re hearing rumblings they’ll debut before the end of 2019. Finally!

Late summer/early fall is a great time to do some landscape planting and lawn renovation. Everyone is always eager to go in the spring, but the warm, sunny days, cool nights and hopefully ample rainfall make this the perfect time to start so the arrangements can really grow by the following season.

TALK OF THE TOWN

WELCOME TO

Newark

EXPERIENCE THE CULTURE AND BUZZ OF NEW YORK CITY WITHOUT CROSSING THE BRIDGE IN NEW JERSEY’S MOST POPULOUS CITY.

WHAT’S IN A NAME?

Newark was named after either Newarkon-Trent in England, at left, (a province many of Newark’s Puritan settlers derived from) or a biblical reference to “New Ark of the Covenant.” It is nicknamed “Brick City” for the many housing projects erected since the ’60s.

282,090 ■ WEBSITE:

NEWARKNJ.GOV

CHERRY BLOSSOM FESTIVAL Each April, Newark hosts a cherry blossom festival which rivals that of Washington D.C.’s. The Essex County Cherry Blossom Festival spotlights the 5,000 Japanese cherry blossom trees that are at peak bloom in Branch Brook Park, which runs through Newark and Belleville. The festival also coincides with Essex County Family Day, which includes a petting zoo, food from local vendors and live music.

Arts & Entertainment In the late ’90s, after a long economic slump, Newark launched several new building projects to revitalize its community. These projects, which have been wildly successful, include New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC), Bears and Eagles Riverfront Stadium and the Prudential Center, home to the New Jersey Devils ice hockey team. The 19,500-seat arena also hosts basketball games, festivals and concerts. Similarly, NJPAC provides the community with speakers, musicals and galas.

1836 ■ POPULATION:

DINING OUT

Looking for a delicious meal? Indulge in drinks at the bar and locally sourced comfort food prepared by celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson at Marcus B&P in the historic Hahne & Co. building. If you’re downtown, get some legendary corned beef and potato pancakes at old-school Hobby’s Deli. Newark also offers plenty of Spanish and South American cuisine. Casa Vasca, which boasts large portions of Basque dishes, and Don Pepe Restaurant, a seafood and steak hot spot, are just two examples. If you need to grab a quick bite on your way to an event at Prudential Center, try Mompou Tapas Wine Bar and Lounge on Ferry Street.

Thinking about buying or selling a house here? The median home value in Newark is $263,500. Home values in the Brick City have increased by 14.1 percent in the past year and are projected to rise another 8.6 percent within the next year, according to Zillow.

TRANSIT

EDUCATION

Many higher education institutions are based here, including Rutgers University’s Newark undergraduate campus, law and medical schools, New Jersey Institute of Technology, Essex County College and Seton Hall University’s law school.

FAMOUS FACES

Plenty of celebrities have called this city home at one point or another. From left to right, the late singer Whitney Houston; the Four Seasons’ lead singer Frankie Valli; rapper and actor Ice-T; rapper and actress Queen Latifah and NBA Hall of Famer Shaquille O’Neal are among the notables born in Newark. Additionally, Black Panther actor Michael B. Jordan was raised here, and Thomas Edison lived here in the early 1870s.

DID YOU KNOW? Newark is the largest employment center in New Jersey, and approximately 100,000 people commute here each day from New York City and elsewhere in the Garden State.

24

HOME, SWEET HOME

In 1935, Newark became one of the first U.S. cities to have an underground subway line. Today, that original subway system has been extended to include above-ground lines as well. Now called the Newark Light Rail, it is an efficient, cost-effective way to navigate the city. Of course, Newark is also home to Newark Liberty International Airport, the first municipal commercial airport in the United States (and now one of the busiest), as well as two bustling train stations.

Photos clockwise from top center; cherry blossoms, seal, Newark airport: Getty Images; Edison: wikimedia/Library of Congress; Michael B. Jordan: wiki/Joshua Massel; Shaquille O’Neal: wiki/Keith Allison; Queen Latifah: wiki/Kelly; Ice-T: wiki/ David Shankbone; Frankie Valli: wiki/ SolarScott; Whitney Houston: wiki/PH2 Mark Kettenhofen; NJIT campus: wiki/Romer Jed Medina; NJPAC: wiki/ Jim.henderson

One of the oldest, largest and best-known cities in New Jersey, Newark has had its ups and downs. But the Essex County seat stands strongly today as both a cultural and industrial hub. With the amount of dining options and entertainment and job opportunities the city provides, it’s no wonder property values are on the rise in this 26.7-square-mile town. And, of course, the people of Newark remain as vibrant and diverse as ever.

OUT OF BREATH? IF PHYSICAL ACTIVITY LITERALLY TAKES YOUR BREATH AWAY, YOU MAY BE SUFFERING FROM A COMMON AND TREATABLE CONDITION CALLED EXERCISE-INDUCED BRONCHOCONSTRICTION.

FOR NINE OUT OF 10 PEOPLE WITH ASTHMA, strenuous exercise triggers symptoms. Coughing, wheezing and tightness in the chest make continuing their activity difficult. There are other children and adults who have the same symptoms but do not have asthma at all. “These people also experience symptoms during or after exercise, but they have a completely different and unrelated condition,” says Killol K. Patel, M.D., a Barnabas Health Medical Group provider specializing in pulmonology disease at Saint Barnabas Medical Center. Dr. Patel practices at Pulmonary Consultants located in Millburn, New Jersey. The medical term for this condition is “exercise-induced bronchoconstriction,” or EIB. That’s a mouthful until you break it down: Exercise-induced means it’s related to exercise, broncho refers to airway tubes in the lungs and constriction means the airway nar-

“OUR MAIN MESSAGE IS THAT, FOR THE MAJORITY OF BOTH ADULTS AND CHILDREN, HAVING EIB IS NO REASON TO PULL YOURSELF OUT OF A SPORT OR EXERCISE.” —KILLOL K. PATEL, M.D.

rows, making it harder to breathe. When you breathe faster and deeper during exercise, you typically inhale air through your mouth, which makes that air cooler and dryer than normal. For people with EIB, this air causes the airway to narrow. In addition to coughing or chest-tightening, other less common symptoms include feeling tired and out of shape and having abdominal discomfort. Signs can begin anytime during exercise or even up to an hour after. “It’s important for adults to know

that if you had asthma-like symptoms as a child but don’t have asthma now, you might still have EIB,” Dr. Patel says. “Those symptoms can still occur during exercise.” Among all people without asthma, about 1 in 10 have EIB. Ninety percent of people with asthma have it, and up to half of all athletes suffer from EIB, according to experts, so having EIB doesn’t mean you need to avoid strenuous activities. “That’s the whole point of getting the right diagnosis and treatment,” Dr. Patel says. “Once you start treatment, you will probably not need to limit or even change the types of exercise you do.” For the majority of patients at Saint Barnabas Medical Center who have EIB, the only pre-treatment required is Albuterol before exercise to prevent symptoms. In addition, they learn to avoid “triggers” that can cause symptoms: extreme heat or cold, pollen, pollution, smoke, fumes, etc. Adjusting the time of day for exercise or moving indoors can help too, as can gentle warm-ups. “Our main message is that, for the majority of both adults and children, having EIB is no reason to pull yourself out of a sport or exercise,” Dr. Patel says. “Our staff has the training to identify the cause of your symptoms and help you find the treatment that works.”

TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR SYMPTOMS

Whether you have either asthma or “exercise-induced bronchoconstriction” (EIB), which has similar symptoms, you can take steps to make exercise and sports a safe and comfortable part of your daily routine. “Working with your doctor, our specialists can help you identify the tools and skills you need to manage your symptoms with confidence,” says Linda Hardy, respiratory therapist and certified asthma educator with Saint Barnabas Medical Center’s Asthma SelfManagement and Pulmonary Rehabilitation Programs. The Asthma Self-Management Education Program was one of the first in the country to be certified through the American Association for Respiratory Care. To find out more about Saint Barnabas Medical Center’s Asthma Self-Management and Pulmonary Rehabilitation Programs, call 973.322.5093.

SAVING ONE LIFE, PRESERVING ANOTHER A GYNECOLOGICAL ONCOLOGIST AT SBMC TREATED ONE PATIENT’S OVARIAN CANCER—AND HELPED PRESERVE HER DREAM OF CONCEIVING A SECOND CHILD.

30

WHEN MAUREEN ZAVOCKI, 33, had trouble getting pregnant, her doctors found an unexpected problem, but it was a discovery that might have saved her life; she had a tumor in one ovary. Upon the recommendation of several clinicians and friends, she went straight to The Cancer Center at Saint Barnabas Medical Center (SBMC). “My fertility doctor recommended I see Dr. (Thad) Denehy at Saint Barnabas Medical Center,” she says. “He’s a well-respected doctor with extensive training in gynecologic oncology, obstetrics and gynecology and robotassisted surgery.” In addition, he is part of a team of specialists, a “tumor board” at SBMC, that meets regularly to discuss treatment options. Patients benefit from the expertise of gynecologic oncologists, medical oncologists, surgical oncologists and other Thad Denehy, M.D. cancer specialists.

This team identified the tumor as a rare type of cancer. Thankfully, the cancer was at a very early stage, when it is most treatable. “Knowing what type and subtype of cancer a patient has and what stage it is makes a significant difference in determining the right treatment,” says Jennifer Jennifer Wagmiller, Wagmiller, M.D., medical oncoloM.D. gist at SBMC. “Our team works very closely together to consider all factors to guide us to the best recommendation for each patient.” Maureen’s team realized that treating her cancer was not the only goal for the young mother of a toddler. Preserving the chance to have a second child remained high on the list of priorities for Maureen and Cristin, her wife of four years. “We liked Dr. Denehy from the beginning,” Maureen says. “He and everyone we met were very thorough. They gave me all of my options and answered all of our questions.” She was concerned about chemotherapy, which can affect fertility. But Dr. Denehy assured Maureen that she could safely delay surgery and chemotherapy for a few weeks. This gave her the option of freezing her eggs, so conceiving a second child was still possible after treatment. Maureen’s cancer diagnosis came in November 2018; she had her eggs frozen in January 2019; and Dr. Denehy performed surgery in February. “Using the da Vinci robot-assisted system, we removed the tumor using a few small incisions, instead of a larger incision,” Dr. Denehy says. “And to help with recovery, we take steps before and after surgery to help all of our patients get back to regular activities more quickly.” These steps include “enhanced recovery after surgery” and involve specific types of exercise, nutrition and pain management. This results in shorter hospital stays and quicker recovery, Dr. Denehy says. “I got back to work within a week,” Maureen says. “That meant a lot since I had missed so much work in the previous months.” Today, Maureen’s surgery and months of chemotherapy are behind her. “Through every step, everyone at Saint Barnabas Medical Center empowered me to make my own decisions with confidence,” she says. “It was a whirlwind six months, but it’s all done. We can now move forward with our lives.” TO LEARN MORE ABOUT ALL CANCER SERVICES AT SAINT BARNABAS MEDICAL CENTER, CALL 973.322.5200 OR VISIT RWJBH.ORG/SBMCCANCER.

The Committed Pig of Morristown is redefining burgers with delicious dishes like the “Good Morning,” a burger piled high with pork roll, fried egg, American cheese and chopped chives. This, alongside its cookie-dough pancakes, renowned tater tots and farm-themed atmosphere, makes it a leading eatery in Morris County. You’ll want to go here with an appetite!

SEAFOOD RESTAURANT Denville Seafood has been in business for more than 60 years, but there’s nothing fishy about their success. They use only the freshest ingredients, purchased daily from a nearby fish market. Try the sautéed jumbo lump crab meat or the fisherman’s platter for a taste. Newer to the scene is PF Market, a seafood market and restaurant in West Caldwell known for their generous portions. Fill up on their fresh oysters or flounder filet stuffed with crab meat, or try the seafood salad for some lighter fare. MORRIS 1.

WEDDING RECEPTIONS Aside from the dress, the venue is arguably the most important part of a wedding, and The Park Savoy Estate in Florham Park is the perfect place to make it memorable. Center your event inside the historic mansion and its sprawling ballroom, and enjoy drinks and take photographs in the luscious greenery outside. The Manor in West Orange is another ideal venue. Outdoors, enjoy beautifully landscaped grounds adorned with fountains, rustic brick and sculptures. Inside, you’ll find grand banquet rooms that will hold up just fine in case of inclement weather.

SURE, ENDURING FAME LAY AHEAD FOR THESE FOURTEEN MORRIS AND ESSEX COUNTY STUDENTS OF PAST YEARS. BUT HIGH SCHOOL IS STILL HIGH SCHOOL. By HALEY LONGMAN

When the bell rang, they had to scurry into the classroom just like everyone else. They had no immunity to acne, homework, dating rejection or the gym teacher’s whistle. But one thing was different about the 14 onetime Morris/Essex County high school students you’ll read about here. If they ever dreamed “I’ll be famous someday!” they were right. What they all seem to agree on is that being a teen here left an indelible impression. And for Morris and Essex, their names now bring bragging rights.

BUZZ ALDRIN

Delbarton School, Class of ’87

Montclair High School, Class of ’47

The Game of Thrones star attended this all-boys RomanCatholic prep school in Morristown, which he told NJ.com was “an amazing school”—but he confessed it was one “where I didn’t really fit in.”

Unsurprisingly, science rather than the arts was pilot and astronaut Aldrin’s strong suit as a student in Essex County. “I failed music when I was a teenager,” the Montclair native has said.

“My feeling about growing up in New Jersey was, ‘How come I’m not in New York?’ That being said, I’m older and I have a better worldview now, and so I think I grew up in an incredibly privileged position,” the Oscarwinner has said. “The town I grew up in is beautiful. I got a great education, and I’m very grateful for it.”

The frontman of The Four Seasons grew up in Newark’s fourth ward and usually walked to and from Central High School. “I slept on a twin bed while my brothers shared the full,” he told The Wall Street Journal in 2014 of his humble beginnings. “There was only one bathroom, but the apartment had real hardwood floors, steam heat, and hot and cold running water. I couldn’t believe it.”

CHRIS CHRISTIE

Oratory Prep, Class of ’62

Glen Ridge High School, Class of ’80

Livingston High School, Class of ’80

Though the It’s Always Sunny star grew up in Asbury Park, his parents sent him to prep school in Summit when his hometown was going through a rough patch. “Someone would drive us up to Summit on a Sunday night,” he told New Jersey Monthly in 2010. “We’d stop for pizza. We could smoke. We could do anything that we couldn’t do when we were around our parents. We all made it work.”

“I remember getting through high school and thinking, ‘Boy, I’m glad I got that behind me!’” Tom Cruise, whose Glen Ridge classmates knew him as Tom Mapother, has said, according to IMDb. “Then, when I was 19, I got [cast in] Risky Business and I realized, ‘Ah, so this is life—it’s a little bigger than I thought!’”

The New Jersey governor-turnedpresidential-hopeful has thanked his hometown for his political trajectory. “You cannot divide me and this town in terms of who I am and what I’ve become,” he said when getting inducted into Livingston High School’s Hall of Fame in 2013. “There is no chance if I hadn’t grown up in this town and went to this high school that I’d be standing up here as governor.”

QUEEN LATIFAH

SINGER, SONGWRITER, ACTRESS AND PRODUCER

Irvington High School, Class of ’87 “There’s probably no reason I should be here as an AfricanAmerican girl from Newark,” Dana Owens, aka Queen Latifah, told Good Housekeeping in 2013. “And for a lot of the things I’ve wanted to do in life, I haven’t looked typical. I was not born a size 2. I’m not skinny, period. I’m not willing to sleep with the director or step on somebody else’s neck to get the job.”

RACHEL ZOE

STYLIST AND DESIGNER

Millburn High School, Class of ’89 Zoe reminisced about her upscale upbringing at a Create & Cultivate conference panel last year. “I remember [Short Hills] being family-friendly, safe and a beautiful place to grow up. I played tennis, went to the parks and made incredible friends. If I were in Short Hills now, I would be able to drive to the Millburn Diner, the Bagel Chateau and Lysistrata Pizza. I don’t know if they’re still there, but if they are, I’d remember the way.”

How would this funny gal sum up her adolescence in Essex County? “We lived in this nice Jewish neighborhood,” Handler told W magazine. “Everyone had a Mercedes, and I was going to school in a Pinto.”

“I’ve always been that kid in high school who had on the funnylooking sneakers, and they used to go; ‘Those are some funny-looking sneakers, Lauryn!’,” the Fugees singer and Maplewood native told Simon Witter in an iconic 1999 interview with Rock’s Backpages. “And I’d say; ‘They’re not funny-looking, these are hot!’, and they’d say ‘Alright, they’re hot, but only you can wear them.’ Six months later they have on the same funny-looking sneakers.”

LAURA BENANTI

SINGER AND ACTRESS

Kinnelon High School, Class of ’97 “I was always weird, but I was really driven,” the Tony winner told New Jersey Monthly last year of her high school self. “I was always the kid who was listening to musicals.”

Laufer, DaLena, Jensen & BraDLey, LLC. FAMILY LAW ATTORNEY AND MEDIATOR CHRISTINE M. DALENA, ESQ, HAS BEEN A FAMILY LAW ATTORNEY for over 28 years. For the past 15 years, Ms. Dalena has been an equity partner with the law firm of Laufer, Dalena, Jensen & Bradley, LLC. , in Morristown, New Jersey. Ms. Dalena has extensive experience in handling complex, high net worth and high conflict mediation, collaborative law and family law litigation matters. Although Ms. Dalena’s specialty is in handling family law related matters (divorce, dissolution of civil unions, adoptions, domestic violence, custody & parenting time, marital torts, paternity, cohabitation agreements & pre-nuptial agreements), she has extensive experience in other areas of the law—real estate transactions & general litigation—which allows her to handle a broader spectrum of issues that customarily arise in the matrimonial law context. Each case is unique so she employs the most appropriate strategy—mediation, arbitration or litigation- based on the particular circumstances that exist in each individual matter.

WHICH OF THESE EDUCATIONAL DESTINATIONS FITS YOUR FAMILY’S PASSION? By GIANNA BARONE It won’t be long before the classroom beckons. But who says that school has a monopoly on knowledge? Here are a half-dozen travel destinations that can teach you plenty without taking attendance. Whether you’re making the most of late summer or planning a family getaway for fall, these spots— keyed to six areas of interest so you can choose the subject you’d like to “major” in—offer an enriching travel curriculum. Now, just in case there’s a test, pay close attention to the fun!

FOR ART LOVERS…

Marfa, Texas This west Texas desert town half the population size of Harding Township has achieved mythical status among art and music scenesters from both coasts. Named for a Russian character in a Jules Verne novel, Marfa has a down-home, relaxed vibe that keeps it from becoming the least bit pretentious. Visual and contemporary art fans will appreciate that Marfa serves as a giant art exhibit. The Judd Foundation, which preserves the work of the late Marfa pioneer, artist and educator Donald Judd, offers custom-guided tours of the artist’s studios and workspaces around town, allowing you to spend time studying select sculptures by Marfa’s biggest names in minimalist art. If you’re traveling in the fall, the Judd Foundation will host “open hours” when visitors can learn about Judd’s (and Marfa’s) role in the minimalism movement of the 1960s and ’70s. While in town, visitors can turn their Wild West inspiration into art at Workshops Marfa, a crafting center that teaches classes on everything from repairing Japanese pottery to accurately painting detailed landscapes of south Texas.

FOR HISTORY BUFFS…

Boston, Massachusetts Stop the presses—Boston is historic! OK, so you knew that, but did you know how handson history can be? Head to the harbor and climb aboard the Boston Tea Party Ship and Museum, where you can participate in the “Destruction of the Tea” program, throwing actual tea parcels overboard and learning all about the protests against “taxation without representation.” For more historical fun on the water, hop onto the U.S. Navy’s oldest commissioned ship that’s still afloat, the USS Constitution, for a historical cruise around the harbor that offers incredible views of landmarks such as the Bunker Hill monument and the Old North Church. After docking, roam around the USS Constitution Museum to explore exhibits on the War of 1812, the ship’s crew and artifacts from the sailors who inhabited the vessel. For an adults-only itinerary, end your evening with a Boston Crawling pub crawl that includes a guided tour of major American Revolution sites and historical taverns—along with sips from the best of Boston’s local brews.

FOR SCIENCE GEEKS…

Huntsville, Alabama Prepare for an out-of-this-world vacation when you travel down to the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville and enroll the whole family in Space Camp! A dream destination since 1982, the Family Space Camp Program invites your crew to get a firsthand look at a rocket’s journey from design to engineering to blastoff. Learn what it’s like to experience astronaut boot camp with a simulation mission, realistic operations training, rocket construction and an allencompassing history lesson on the nation’s space program. Set off on your three-day mission to Rocket City and learn about the behind-thescenes work it takes to run a real rocket launch and discover what the pros experience in residence at the International Space Station. Space Camp also offers an Aviation Challenge Camp Program for families who are eager to learn about the power and art of aviation, which includes fighter pilot simulations, a lesson in flight survival skills and a historical overview of the advancements in flight. (If you want to sound like a native, go easy on the “ville” here—it’s more like “Hunts’v’l.”)

FOR ANIMAL LOVERS...

San Diego, California Anyone with even a passing interest in wildlife should someday check out the more than 3,000 species at the San Diego Zoo, the most visited zoological reservation in the United States. But for the true zoologists at heart, the San Diego Zoo offers upgraded experience “packages” that take visitors behind the scenes to learn about—and participate in—the care of animals. If you’ve ever wondered what the critters do after the zoo gates close, the “Animals in Action” package allows ticket-holders to feed, touch and learn facts about animals that are not available for general admission viewing. For a truly immersive behindthe-scenes encounter, the five- or eight-hour Exclusive VIP Experience package grants you a personal tour guide at the zoo, complete with special access to off-exhibit areas, a sit-down meal inside the park and personal interactions with creatures big and small.

FOR FOODIES…

Gazelle, California Put away the canoe and sharpen your butcher knife—this isn’t your childhood camp experience. Welcome to Meat Camp, held at Belcampo Farms in Gazelle, a small “census-designated place” in northern California’s Siskiyou County that’s home to a modest population of roughly 70. Covering about half a mile of land, Gazelle’s sparse homesteads and desert landscape provide the perfect backdrop for a retreat in which foodies spend three days learning the secrets of how to butcher, prepare and enjoy fresh meats. It’s a rugged, stripped-down culinary experience like none other. Camp out for three days and two nights in a luxury-style tent in one of the quietest, most surreal locations in the Golden State. Also on offer are upgraded glamping (glamour camping) options on Belcampo’s orchard. The workshop covers info about animal welfareapproved and organic farming, and you can develop knife skills that are sure to impress future dinner guests. Enjoy this long, unplugged weekend away as a couple, with your whole meatloving family or even as an adventurous and gritty spin on a girls’ getaway.

FOR SPORTS FANATICS…

Park City, Utah Grab your skis and parka when you head out west to Park City’s pro-approved slopes for a trip that is sure to improve your shred. The Mahre Training Center at Deer Valley Resort is run by former Team USA Olympic medal-winning skiers (and twin brothers) Phil and Steve Mahre. Here you can sharpen your skills and train alongside other Olympic medalists in an exclusive ski camp. With options for threeor five-day excursions on the slopes, your registration includes daily ski instruction, training by professional skiers and a video analysis with critiques from world-renowned coaches. After your day of expert-level ski practice, kick back in style at one of Deer Valley Resort’s luxury inns and private lodgings. Warm up frozen fingers while at Fireside Dining restaurant or stop by Snowshoe Tommy’s, Deer Valley’s cozy coffee-brewing cabin.

AT THE NEWLY TRANSFORMED PARK AVENUE CLUB

SPECIAL PROMOTION

The Park Avenue Club in Florham Park, New Jersey has undergone a massive transformation. The already popular and ultra-unique private dining and event facility is now poised to become an even greater hub of social activity in Morris County, New Jersey. Significant new event facilities have been added and all the member spaces have been completely refreshed. As a result, the Club is now a one-of-a-kind, multi-faceted venue and resource that has evolved to meet the unique dining and entertainment needs of the individuals, families and corporations in its area. The experiences it now enables are nothing short of spectacular. But the real secret sauce is the club’s reason for being; is to support, through the Park Avenue Foundation, 13 non-profit partners. This may be the only physical social and business club in the country whose core philosophy revolves around giving back. Park Avenue Club’s mission and dedication to charity is rooted deep in its DNA and its location. The site, once a working dairy barn for the Sisters of St. Elizabeth, is registered as a historical site. While raising and milking cows is no longer its raison d’etre, a posh dining club is proving to be a great way for the property to benefit the area. The proof: through the generosity of its members, more than $6 million have been donated since its inception in 1994. This commitment is matched by a devotion to providing superior hospitality experiences. “Park Avenue Club members, clients and guests are among the most sophisticated people in the world,” says Gregory Smith, Executive Director. “We have expanded so we can meet, and exceed, their evolving new tastes and styles. The

060_MRESHL_0919.indd 2

renovation project has been extensive, but anything less would have left needs and opportunities unmet. Our club is now the quintessential third space—after home and work —that provides richness, dimension and balance. It is truly a home away from home. We’re ready for everything from elegant to casual, from intimate to impressively large, from planned to spontaneous.” “As we planned, revised and executed the multi-stage renovation project,” Smith explains, “we always remembered that we are a club. On-going input from members and the community guided us in everything from the quality of furniture and finishes in each space to the flexibility to quickly reconfigure spaces to create different environments. Now, we are starting to see all this extra effort pay off as prospective members and clients are thrilled with all we have to offer to meet their diverse needs from simple socializing and entertaining to weddings and innovative business events. The recently completed private events center, was constructed from the ground up with a two-story lobby with private entrance and is supported by a professional, quality kitchen. It features a modular 5,200 sq. ft. ballroom with soaring ceilings, French doors to an outside patio, plentiful natural light, and the utmost in modern technology. A second dedicated space of 2,500 sq. ft, known as the “Pavilion,” is perfect for cocktail hours for large events, or as the dedicated space for more intimate gatherings.

S P EC I AL P ROMOT I ON

Cherished aspects of the member spaces have been preserved while facilities like the Hayloft (the primary dining/restaurant space) have been modernized and updated with new layouts, floors, ceilings, finishes and furniture. The reimagined, beloved watering hole, “Charity’s,” now serves as a more casual dining, meeting & workspace during the day, and transforms into a bar and small plates venue at happy hour. There is also new expanded outdoor dining. “With nine private event rooms, two unique eateries both with outdoor seating, a coffee bar, landscaped gardens, new menus and a full schedule of special events, such as live music, Burger and Beer nights, family nights and vibrant social clubs within the club, there is so much happening for members to enjoy,” says Board President Steven Lindner. “Charity’s and the Hayloft both have a new look, a new vibe and distinct menus. Charity’s offers quicker fare, upscale small plates, member bar and coffee bar. Breakfast is available during the workweek in both Charity’s and the Hayloft. The Hayloft offers an enhanced buffet with tableside items and an upscale, fine dining menu Tuesday through Saturday with brunch every second Sunday of the month.” Park Avenue Club is now an even more integral location in the lives of those who live and work not just in Chatham, Summit, Madison and Morristown but anywhere in Northern and Central New Jersey. Members can host over 500 guests in the ballroom or just drop by for an intriguing cocktail happy hour. Your meal can be a gourmet masterpiece complete with world-class wines or a more casual buffet experience. One can cherish the quiet of a cozy former silo or hear a fine local musician live on a Friday night. You can even dine privately in an elegantly appointed library or while enjoying the view al fresco on a patio. According to Lindner, “Members have the flexibility to order off of any of our menus and dine in Charity’s, Hayloft or outside on our patios. Although a lot of business gets done over breakfast and lunch at our club, more and more members are finding, like I have, that our outdoor patios are great places to enjoy a meal with a friend or spouse.” Park Avenue Club is ideally situated to succeed in its unique mission. The residents in the surrounding area have a massive appetite for fine, local hospitality and for supporting charitable causes. And the location is ideal for both families and businesses. Campus Drive, The Green at Florham Park, and the surrounding area are home to major corporations and industry leaders including PwC, UBS, Shionogi, Novartis, Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley, New York Jets, BASF North America, ADP, Merck, Bayer, Realogy and Summit Medical Group.

POWER FOOD

The Almighty Blueberry THESE BERRIES MAY BE SMALL, BUT THEY’RE LOADED WITH NUTRIENTS. YOU’VE UNDENIABLY HEARD ABOUT THE BENEFITS OF blueberries. They’re so healthy, in fact, they have the most antioxidants of any fruit or vegetable. Convenience is an appealing factor for these little guys too, as you can just pop them in your mouth without having to slice them or remove a stem. And since they’re about 85 percent water, they’re low in calories, carbs and fat, making them a smart choice for those watching their weight—or for those looking to fight cancer, boost brain health, support digestion or all of the above (and who isn’t?). But we bet you didn’t know the blueberry is the official state fruit of New Jersey—all the more reason to load up on this super food. POWER UP Blueberries are packed with antioxidants, which protect against cell damage and may reduce the risk of cancer and heart disease. They’re also rich in soluble fiber—a type of fiber that absorbs water—helping to reduce cholesterol levels and keeping blood sugar stable, so they’re an excellent choice for people with diabetes. These berries also help you feel full longer, promoting a healthy weight. Blueberries are a great source of vitamin C, which helps to ward off and fight infection; manganese, a mineral that may help control blood sugar and maintain bone; and potassium, a mineral that may reduce blood pressure and the risk of stroke. Studies have even linked blueberries with better memory. Lastly, a one-cup serving packs just 80 calories and 0.2 grams of fat.

14 days, either in a plastic container or covered bowl. Wait to rinse until just before use; the bloom keeps them fresher longer. Delicious on their own, blueberries can be added to sweet or savory dishes and pair especially well with lemon, banana, almond, mint and coconut. Add some to your breakfast smoothie or oatmeal; pack them with yogurt and granola for a snack; toss with cucumber and feta or spinach and pecans for a refreshing lunch; or make a blueberry relish or barbecue sauce to pour over pork for dinner. Blueberries are a tasty addition to salads, sandwiches and flatbreads, as well as sweet treats like muffins, crumbles and pies. DID YOU KNOW? You can purchase fresh blueberries year-round. North American blueberries are harvested between April and October, while South American berries are available from November through March. Blueberries are also available frozen. As long as you choose unsweetened berries, they can be just as nutritious as fresh ones. —Deborah Olsen

BUY/STORE/SERVE Choose berries that are firm, plump and dark blue or purple with a “bloom,” a dusty or silvery coating. (This helps keep insects away and is a sign of freshness.) Reddish berries haven’t ripened and tend to taste sour. Look for berries that are uniform in size and free of stems and leaves. Blueberries can be kept in the refrigerator for up to

RESTAURANT REVIEW

PASHA MEZZE GRILL I admittedly get googly-eyed when choosing a dining option in our area. We know Montclair, Morristown and Newark are foodie havens, but my choice is Lake Hiawatha. This community within Parsippany, along its North Beverwyck corridor, has a wonderful mashup of diverse restaurants, from classic pizzerias and Mexican joints to exotic Afghani and Thai eateries. The only problem (I use that word loosely) is selecting the right one, but with the recent opening of Pasha Mezze Grill, the task became a bit easier. You can’t go wrong at Pasha, which offers traditional Turkish fare and flavors of the Mediterranean. The site of a former Italian bistro, the expansive dining area is bright and airy thanks to the bevy of windows lining the corner storefront. The friendly staff on a busy weekend added to the already inviting atmosphere, while the menu stirred excitement. My friend and I noticed a lengthy brunch menu with Mediterranean-inspired omelets (think Feta cheese), small plates, salads and sandwiches, but dinner was on our minds this time. Turkish is one of my favorite cuisines, so naturally I wanted all the appetizers: Baba ganoush, Tabouleh, falafel, sautéed liver. But after a playful scolding from my friend, I ordered the perfect trio for our table: an Instagram-worthy cheese board was adorned with assorted cheeses—our favorites being the creamy honey-topped Mascarpone and a sharp Manchego—walnuts and dried figs and apricots. This app paired nicely with our second starter, a bowl of tzatziki and what seemed like a bottomless basket of warm doughy pita. The yogurt dip was full of fresh cucumber and mint flavor; it was much more refreshing than most tzatzikis I’ve had elsewhere. We could have stopped there (particularly because our server kept delivering pita when our bread basket emptied), but I had to try the grilled octopus. As seen on Pasha’s social media, the single cephalopod arm had perfect char marks and rested on a bed of smoky baba ganoush. I warned my friend, who isn’t much of a seafood eater, that even slightly overcooked octopus could be rubbery or chewy, but our dish was as tender as it gets. Having thoroughly enjoyed our appetizers, we had high hopes for our entrées. The menu boasted a large selection of marinated grilled chicken and steak dishes, and although the sweet chili beef skewer was calling my name, I had the grilled lamb skewer (and no regrets). The cubes of lamb rib were a perfect medium temperature with a tenderness that matched the octopus appetizer. A side of rice and garden salad were the ideal complements to the distinct taste of the meat. My friend, who again claimed she rarely orders fish, had the pan-seared salmon. Perhaps Pasha brought out the seafood lover in her because she devoured the flaky fish even on a pita-filled belly. The menu promised charred broccoli as a side (and the take-out menu lists couscous), but the salmon was served with a medley of green beans, carrots and Brussels sprouts. The veggies were good, but not what we expected. Tummies filled to the brim (did I mention all the pita?), we spilt a small order of baklava for dessert, which in my opinion is the best way to cap a delicious Mediterranean meal from Pasha Mezze Grill—a definite dining destination in a great foodie town. —Darius Amos Pasha Mezze Grill, 94 N. Beverwyck Rd., Lake Hiawatha, 973.265.4982, pashamezzegrill.com
