Hah, I work and live there currently. Though for a 22 year old just out of college, it leaves a bit to be desired -- will probably move back to philly and commute.

Not entirely true--Pennington's pretty much McMansion free, too! And it's a pre-Revolutionary War town, which is rather nice.

I'm a proud owner of a mediocre cookie cutter house in Hamilton!!! But Delorenzo's is close by so it all balances out.

Delorenzos definitely helps!

Same with most nice places in NJ (like Somerset County).

Northern NJ is close to NYC (plus) but full of McMansions and assholes (minus).

And the parts of northern NJ that arent full of McMansions are all pretty far away from NYC. One of my friends lives in West Milford NJ and it's a pretty nice area, his neighborhood is pretty McMansion free.

South Orange/Maplewood. All the mansions were built at the turn of the century and the towns are mostly 3-5 bedrooms homes. 27 minutes to Penn.

For example, this lovely place was recently on the market.



Now sold.

Wasn't that YOUR house? Did it finally sell because you put "ballin' ass baller" on your business card. I bet that's what did it.

No, but I did work it into the price.

27 to Penn. 25 to Hoboken. On a good day I can drive from the NY side of the Holland to my driveway in 21 minutes.

Sold for asking to a nice young couple with two kids who just got the place. Had them and their parents over a few days ago to teach them how to run the house.

Yesterday, someone from the historical society knocked on the door to ask if we would consider being on the house tour. Nice thing to pass onto these kids.

Doesn't West Milford have the Ship Inn--or is that just Milford? VERY good fish and chips there, and excellent beer brewed on site!
