New Winter Banners are Hanging Around Downtown

New Winter Banners are Hanging Around Downtown

You may have noticed the new banners hanging around town! Thanks to the Downtown Westfield Corporation and The Town of Westfield for designing, printing and hanging these brand new snowflake banners, welcoming visitors to our lovely downtown this holiday season and throughout Winter. They are part of the downtown decorating efforts along with the holiday wreaths and garlands.  In addition, the DWC has been working hard to decorate vacant stores for the upcoming holiday season by putting greenery in the flower baskets and filling the empty storefronts with holiday decorations and artwork by local artists.

Downtown Westfield has a New Website: www.WestfieldToday.com

The Downtown Westfield Corporation is pleased to present a new website for Downtown Westfield's Business District. Working with a special grant from Main Street NJ, DWC worked closely with Glerin, a Virginia-based web design & strategy firm, to create a custom site which meets the needs of our business community and creates a visually appealing new online presence for our town.

"We think shoppers and diners will be able to more easily navigate the downtown site and find what they are looking for more quickly and intuitively," said Jamie Lemberg, in charge of Digital Marketing & Social Media for DWC. "We provide access to the latest news, shopping, dining and events in a streamlined fashion with menus that make sense."

NJWA Gift Certificates Endure Beyond the Holidays

          To make this holiday season a very memorable one, consider giving that special person an exceptional opportunity that could last well beyond the holidays. A gift certificate to the New Jersey Workshop for the Arts can give both a child and  an adult, of any age or ability level, the opportunity to begin musical instruction or continue to increase an existing talent.

They can also be used to make a purchase at the Music Store, which carries  both new and like-new instruments for sale or rental, and carries sheet music, and music accessories such as reeds, oils, music stands, mutes and strings.

A Central Jersey Local's Guide to Westfield Restaurants and Eateries

Central Jersey in Motion has published a great article about restaurants in Westfield! "A cozy town that is home to multiple generations, Westfield boasts a wide array of locally-owned restaurants, cafes, and eateries mere blocks from the train station. The downtown area is both intimate and lively, with incredible variety all within walking distance, and this sense of making you feel more and more welcome with each visit.

Westfield is commonly called "a classic town for modern families," and hosts "Dine Out" restaurant weeks a couple times a year, which is an exciting way to visit and support these local establishments. From Elm Street to the heart of the downtown area, you will find a decades-old French restaurant, a coffee roaster, Tex-Mex cuisine, and even a chocolatier that's family-owned since 1904."
