Berkeley Heights

Ranked #6 "Best Places to Live-America's Top 50 Small Towns" Report


Berkeley Heights, described as one of The Best Places to Live - America's Top 50 Small Towns by CNN in 2013, this community couldn't be prouder of its accolades. This ranking also holds true for the top town rankings for New Jersey.

With just over 13,000 residents calling it home, wonderful outdoor spaces with Lord Stirling Park and the Great Swamp Wildlife Refuge nearby- this community is well known for its general sense of peace and quite- located only about 25 miles from New York City.  Newark Liberty National Airport is about 20 miles away via direct access from Rt. 78, and New Jersey Transit runs into Newark and Penn Station.  Bus service into Manhattan's Port Authority is also available. Shopping, restaurants and many major companies and businesses make Berkeley Heights their home.   It is surrounded by good hospitals: Summit Medical Group, Runnells Center for Rehabilitation and Healthcare, and medical Urgent Care.

Governor Livingston High School is frequently rated among the Best High Schools in New Jersey and in the Nation by US News and World Report and other media outlets. 

Shopping is near at hand, with the Valley Mall in Gillette nearby as well as the world-famous Short Hills Mall.  Swim Clubs abound (there are 3 of them) and many students practice their skills here from many surrounding towns. (I personally took advantage of this for my children.)  Ballfields, tennis courts, and playgrounds make this an outdoor delight. Nearby Watchung Reservation (approximately 2,000 acres) offers hiking trails, horseback riding trails, places to picnic, and of course Surprise Lake where I took my children on warm summer days.

"Something for Everyone", Berkeley Heights continues to delight all who come and make this their home.
