This area is family friendly with small communities and great schools. Everyone is proud to be from here and love to visit New York or the jersey shore. I think this is the best area in the country because there is a whole huge cluster of nothing but nice towns. The bonus of having these nice towns here in particular are the short distances to New York, the shore, and shopping. I think this area will continue to grow in the future because people want to get into the school districts. I would choose to live here again and hope that I am able to when I am older.
Review New Providence
New Providence is a "small town" . My parents always refer to it as Mayberry from the Andy Griffith Show from years ago. Everyone knows everyone, looks out for each others kids, has that small down town that has just about everything you would need.
Crime is very low in this area. People here are educated and pretty well off. Most people don't have much motive to commit crimes. The police, however, are still very active. They patrol the streets and respond to even the most minor issues that are called in. Some concerns people have in my area are remembering to keep cars and houses locked because people from sketchier areas can still come in and rob you.
