Beautiful town, friendly neighborhood, great place to raise kids with lot of events happening throughout the year. School system is awesome with focus on all round development. Access to Chatham, new providence and Murray hill train station within 2-3 miles. Chatham train parking has long wait list but its easier to get parking at new providence and Murray hill train station. For downtown experience it has access to Chatham borough/Madison/Summit within 3 miles.

Chatham is an idyllic city suburb. Safe, good schools, on the mid-town direct train line to NYC, and quaint downtown. Downside is that it is very homogeneous. That said, you can be as wrapped up in the stepford-wife atmosphere as much or as little as you want.
If people could understand that money doesn't buy class and that inclusiveness is good, it might be better.
