Berkeley Heights Township Reviews

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.
This area is perfect starting out middle class families. The community is smaller than others so everyone knows everyone. If I could do it all over I would not change anything because the perks of being in a small community is that you develop relationships with people and it continues over the course of 16 years. Also Berkeley Heights shares a high school with a neighboring town and that has also had an impact in my life. This area has the potential to improve, for example, having another township share the same high school. There are many ways of improving a community, why not make it start with students.
