The movie Guess Who was filmed here, as were many episodes of Nickelodeon's Pete and Pete. It can be accessed easily from exits 135, 136, and 137 on the parkway. It's high school is notorious for flagrant and excessive drug and alcohol use. It is nationally recognized with the Tree city USA award, honoring both a specific tree at Lincoln Park and the tree-lined streets. Some also believe this is a reference to the previously suggested drug use. It is home to over six miles of bicycle trails and is home to an historic house that was a stop on the underground railroad. Notable attractions in the town are the Town Washtub, where teens can be seen spinning around in the drying machines; The Rustic Mill, an overpriced diner; and the clock, the world's largest four-sided Rolex (The number 4 is represented IIII instead of IV). The town is home to 3 Dunkin' Donuts locations, 2 krauzers convienence stores, and an absurd amount of nail and hair salons and pizza parlors.

A small northern town in Union County that is divided by North and South sides, North being the "rich side" and South being the "poorer side". Teens attend Cranford High School that is overpopulated with every sterotype of teen. From class clowns, jokes, preps, nerds and goths Cranford is still known for their excessive partying and drug use. Major morning hot spot, Bagel America, is the home to many teens after a rough night and a rougher morning with a hang over accompianed by a bagel and some friends. Cranford cops are always out looking for someone even Jay-Walking. Cranford is also known for their baseball and volleyball teams. All around though, soccer is forced upon Cranford children at age 4. Cranford is a gossipy town that is growing on the downfall.

a small town in union county new jersey seperated by the north and south. The south side is conisdered lower class, but there is nice parts of it. The North side is considered upperclass. Many famous figures live in cranford such as Tyler Irwin. The highschool is full of many drug dealers and "potheads". Downtown Cranford is the shit, but any other town would rape us at any sport.
Cranford is the shit, watch out for the pothead
