The people are extremely friendly. I love the friends I have made over my 17 years of living here. Mahwah is an incredibly safe town. Its public schools are all on the same road, including the public library. Another bonus is how close we are to New York! Though there are things to enjoy here, I wish Mahwah had a main road with a bunch of shops and cafes or restaurants. Instead, my friends and I often have to drive to other towns to enjoy our time together.

Mahwah is a pleasant place to live with excellent schools! Mahwah is very diverse, with a large population but relatively low taxes. It is close to NYC, has access to public transportation and has a great library with tons of programs for all ages.
Living in Mahwah for 25 years and being a newcomer from California, it was a difference like day and night. Beautiful and safe town to grow a family. My three children graduated from this school district with so much to offer to the kids. Residents are friendly and educated. Being from Hispanic backgroung, never felt descriminated. Love Mahwah NJ
