The Best Local TikTok Accounts to Follow in New Jersey + NYC

This past year, TikTok has taken over the social media world — and it’s not just for 15-year-olds.  TikTok is a great way to share unique video content (and hey, potentially learn some serious dance moves for all the world to see or become famous) so it’s no wonder so many people — including the Montclair Girl team — are hopping on the trend. Since we’ve been enjoying local content per usual,  we figured we’d share with our readers our favorite TikTok accounts around the local New Jersey and New York City area.
