The Eastside Neighborhood Association (ESNA) is a not for profit
community based organization that is celebrating it's 29th year.
Our primary mission is to preserve and protect the Eastside Neighborhood
of Paterson. The designation as a State and Federal Historic
District is a testament to the strength of this organization.
This website is intended to provide many useful resources for
our neighbors as well as gather information to document the history
of the people and the homes they lived in.
Members can use this website to stay current with events in the
area that effect our neighborhood. Go to our membership
page and see when the next meeting is scheduled or if a new
business has joined our discount
Whether you are a current homeowner or an alumnus of the Eastside,
we want your knowledge of these beautiful old houses for our historical
biographies. We are looking for dates of ownership, renovation
details and most importantly memories of living on the Eastside.
Tell us what it was like to live here back in "the good old
days". Write about the neighbors that lived in the other
houses on your block. As an added benefit we hope this forum will
put old friends back in touch with each other. Maybe you can plan
to meet at a future house tour!
As you may have noticed we are continuously changing this site
to better serve our community. Please feel free to send us any
articles of interest or events you would like added.
