Well I guess as a Mountain Laker I need to write on this. Personally this is the worst town I have ever been to. We have a great school system but most of our parents didn't know what they were dragging us into when the moved here. From our first years in school people have been segregated from rich to poor. Only the rich can be with the rich and only the poor with the poor. It is sad that this is true because really everyone should be considered equal. In this small town of Mountain Lakes no one is really poor people just say they are because there not as rich as the people on the Boulevard or The Hill Section. Now apart from that there parents haven't exactly taught there children right because if they have none of this would be happening. It almost seems in our childhood most of the children had missed a step. The step of learning that everyone is equal. No matter what if your poor or rich, black or white. Everyone has 46 chromosomes well not everyone but that's besides the point. All of us having 46 chromosomes makes us equal and all the stuff in the material world should not matter because that was created by us and everyone can create/ buy any of that because we all have the same amount of chromosomes. The rich don't have 48 chromosomes they have 46 like the rest of us.
Now onto sports oh sports. Well first to say are sports really more important than school? Well in Mountain Lakes High School they are. So the Budget wasn't passed no biggie just cut out on some sports oh wait noo lets cut out the half year Latin Class which could have been beneficial to people taking the SAT's. Now are sports really more important than Academics. I know all the football coaches say Academics are more important then Sports but the District Believes otherwise. Now we don't have a Half year Latin Class so instead i have to take a full year Latin class. Well I am sure im not the only one ranting about this loss but we all have to move on. Now onto more sports. So if you don't play a sport should that matter? Everywhere else no it doesn't matter but in Mountain Lakes it matters and matters a whole hell of a lot. Playing a sport and not playing a sport can be the determining factor if your "popular" enough to go out to the cool party over the weekend or if you sit home and watch a movie. This is sad Because really everyone should be invited because again everyone is equal. Now if you don't play Lacrosse again your not cool. Lacrosse is maybe the most over rated thing in mountain lakes i mean come on how can one sport be so Fucking excellent. It's quite simply not because it's just plain stupid. It costs a ton for a Metal or Wooden stick (if your using a Haro) I could make one of those in wood shop. But whatever i Can't change that.
This all amounts on how mountain Lakes is the Shittiest town on earth. When I have kids i will bring them to Paterson before i bring them back to this shitty white suburban town 40 miles from New York City. Everyone smokes weed because there parents give them the money to. Everyone drinks cause theirs nothing better to do and the houses are all over 750,000 Dollars. Theirs no diversity and everyone is grown up to be a racist cause we have never been exposed to black people. Fuck you Mountain Lakes.
a small, snobby, rich, white, preppy suburb of new york that no one has ever heard of. It is filled with big houses and beautiful, rich, bitchy white girls who enjoy shopping. The boys are beautiful as well. If you don't have the newest model of bmw/mercedes/lexus when you get your license, you are looked down on. These rich kids think they can get away with whatever they want so they smoke pot, a lot, even at school....they're pretty smart. They store morphine in their lockers, and have any drug imaginable ready at hand because their parents give them the money to buy it. Beiruit's the name, drinking's the game. On any given night you can find the teenagers, and parents, playing this classic game in their basements. Tournaments are frequent and last up to 12 hours. This small town as an exceptional sports program for having such limited choices of players. Lacrosse players are gods and everyone plays lacrosse, if you dont you are killed. Most live here all their lives, so one has the same friends from when they are two years old, until they die because most return when starting their own families. The high school is a small piece of shit that is made up of mountain lakers, boonton townshipers, and a bunch of deaf kids. yes, deaf kids. This results in most of the high school population knowing sign language. it's awesome. You could probably count the minority race population of the high school on one hand. In fact, there was an article in the new york times about the lack ...more...
a town in new jersey
"im from moutain lakes new jersey"
"really, you must be rich"
"no, my parents are"
mountain lakes is in new jersey not new york, dumb ass
mountain lakes, new jersey
ok...so i am a laker, ill admit that. im also going to admit that mountain lakes is one of the best towns ever. almost everyone here loves it. you walk through the town and people have orange and blue like its their job. people here have so much pride and love representing their town.
as for the boonton townshippers not liking it here, that is not true at all. im friends with many of them and they like it just as much as we do. ok of course theres an acception to this like there is everywhere, but everyone has acceptions.
as for all you people dissing mountain lakes, GET A LIFE. just because we live in a great town with great people, doesnt mean you have to diss it. so what if i have a couple northfaces and ribbons...northfaces are really warm and are awesome coats, ribbons are pretty and add fun to your hair, so HA.
as for the girls who wake up at 5 to do their makeup...thats about 3 girls in our school, and nobody likes them. those are the girls that wear too much bronzer and look like oompa-loompas. most of the girls i know, including me, wake up at 730 when school starts at 8 and dont even wear makeup most of the time. there are many naturally beautiful people who dont need makeup to look pretty.
like the other person said about our parents being rich, i totally agree, they went to college and worked hard for it and deserve everything they have. and the "shitty" houses in the village, really arent that shitty, they are a little smaller than the rest of the houses, ...
Mountain lakes is a great town. I lived there practically all my life and just recently moved. My new town is much bigger and predominately black and hispanic, but i had no issue adjusting or fitting in. Educationally, I was more than prepared, I was more advanced then many of the straight A students, and it's not like I walked into some shitty school system, I'm in the IB program!
And as for all of you that are attempting to whore this great place, I suggest you go to the schools for a little while, considering that I saw far too many spelling mistakes just glancing at a few of your pathetic entries. (FYI, it's posse, not possy). Maybe you should spend a little more time studying, and a little less wishing you were from ML and naturally smart because we were all raised that way.
ML kids are the greatest, and the majority have a lot of friends from outside schools and towns, so some of your friends (if you have any) like them.
not all of the boonton township people hate moutain lakes! how dare you speak for all of us, maybe thats how you feel, but i would choose moutain lakes over any other school, so dont try and speak for me "bob" so get over yourself
moutain lakers and boonton township kids love each other!
Mountain Lakes is basically just a lovely little town. We drink a lot. Play a lot of drinking games. Some morons blow yayo
or smoke the ganj
. But the majority of kids are just looking to enjoy being moderatly to extremely wealthy. Yes we drive around in our nice whips with tints and subs, but hey ...wouldnt you too? In mountain lakes its beirut, not beer pong. We take that very seriously, and If we don't get you on the lax field we'll get you on the ruit table. Enjoy life, drink some beers, rock a lacoste or two, and remember that these are the best days-- living off your parents money.
Yo lets go chill in the lakes tonight... I hear they really know how to throw down and have a good time
