Orient me to Montclair / Bloomfield, NJ

We are moving to New Jersey on the Bloomfield / Montclair border. I know nothing about the neighborhoods except their reputations. Help me hit the ground running with things I should know, especially best coffee, food, shopping, parks, health services, business services and other things that wikipedia has left out. Thanks!

+ three people: me, my partner, and our preschool aged son
+ two old cats
+ we got bikes and a car
+ been in Providence, RI for the last three years; prior to that we lived in Brooklyn and Queens, NY
+ we only have about two weeks to get everything sorted out before our schedules get nuts
+ I will need to commute into nyc for work in September
While I've asked for recommendations for the best things these areas have to offer, I would also like to know what to avoid. Thanks again.
