Berkeley Heights, New Jersey is a very safe town, and a wonderful community to be a part of. The public library is well kept, and other public areas such as parks are very clean. It is a very family friendly town, and it is also a perfect town for a commuter, who travels regularly into the city; there is a train station with a direct line to Penn Station in New York City. There are many good local restaurants to choose from, and you do not need to travel far to find a convenience store nearby. For those who want to go to the gym, there are many options that offering a wide variety of physical exercise services.

Berkeley Heights is a town where everyone is a part of a large family. On multiple occasions the town has come together to help each other out. For instance, when the town's favorite supermarket employee was seen walking to work from 3 towns over because his bike had broken down, the people of Berkeley Heights raised over $500 to get him a new bike.
Schools are predominately populated by white students, but that is changing quickly. There are few things to do in town, besides going to Rita's and walking around town, for example (typical suburban experience). You have to pay for trash pickup.
