The start of a new year brings a lot of promise. People plan on making substantive changes to their lives, such as getting in shape, being more financially prudent, or deciding to break out of an everyday rut. However, the start of a new year can also lower a person’s spirit, such as when they give up on their resolutions within a few short weeks. Another reason for malaise is that the holidays are over and the consensus is that there’s nothing really fun to do. Such is not the case for residents of The Avenue at South Orange, New Jersey, as there are quite a few activities to enjoy within a short commute from the apartment complex.
