Lisa Nicolaou grew up in Radburn, and when it was time to start a family, she told her husband it was "really the only place I can imagine living"
During the early 1960s, Lisa Nicolaou's family moved to Radburn to escape political upheaval in Cuba. At the suggestion of Daniel A. Rothermel, who was principal of Fair Lawn high school from 1963-1978, the family ultimately relocated to Radburn. After moving to New Haven, Conn., and Paris, Lisa returned to Radburn to start a family. She was befriended by Rothermel and his wife, Jean. When the Rothermels retired, Lisa and her husband bought what she called her "dream house." Keep watching Patch for a feature article on Nicolaou's journey.
