About Us

Welcome to Glen Rock News Today (GRNT) the newly enhanced, hyperlocal news website for Glen Rock, NJ.  Let me introduce myself, my name is Julie Maxwell Allen, Publisher of GRNT. I grew up in Glen Rock, NJ and graduated GRHS in 1988. 

Over the years, as I traveled and lived away from Glen Rock I had continued to want to stay informed about events going on in the hometown I loved.  Anyone who has lived in Glen Rock knows it is a distinctive family and community-oriented small town despite being situated in a vast suburban environment.  I used to follow and blog on The Glen Rock Patch along with many other former Glen Rockers to stay current with what was going on in town. I loved how local the Patch was and because of this I wanted to recreate a web site similar to what we had a few years ago with the Patch but keep it focused strictly on Glen Rock. Four years ago I launched Banana Tree News, named after the famous Kilroy’s Market banana tree, which eventually grew into Glen Rock News Today.
