Long Valley is such an amazing place. It is a small town in New Jersey that most people have never heard of, but I love it. Farms and beautiful hiking trails make up the majority of the town so many people will say that it is boring, but the more you learn about the town and the people in it, you see that it is quite an interesting little town. Downtown Long Valley has recently been blessed with the ever so popular coffee shop, The Coffee Potter. This little shop believes in peace, equality, and love. The outside of the store consists of painted rocks that many children have created saying things like "you are beautiful" or "you deserve a good day". Customers are welcome to pick one up on their way out and reimburse the "Rock Garden" on their next visit. That is something I will always remember about Long Valley. The people are so loving towards one another and everyone knows everyone so it makes for a community that truly feels like a family.

Long Valley is a very safe and tight-knit community. Everyone here is nice and welcoming. But there is a severe lack in diversity! I think the town could only benefit from being more diverse, though it's hard because of how rural we are. No one knows about us!
Being able to grow up in the town of Long Valley, New Jersey has been an amazing experience growing up. While my review for diversity, affordability, and nightlife I rate the town as 5 stars overall because you can go to other local towns for good nightlife, despite the high cost of living here there are options of cheaper and more affordable homes, and town really can not do anything about increasing the diversity of the town. The best thing about living in Long Valley is the safety, not only is it one of the safest towns in New Jersey it has been consistently ranked as one of the safest in America. This is mainly because of the good and friendly people living in the town, and the police department which is very popular among the public.
