Really good area to live in and was deemed the safest city in New Jersey. Beautiful scenery especially in the spring and summer. Roads can be a little hard to drive on in the winter but still safe. Very central location, only and hour or so from New York City!
It's Friday night and my friends and I are figuring out what to do for the night. We can not decide what to do because there is almost nothing to do in Long Valley. This town is almost nothing but farm land and suburban cookie cutter neighborhoods. There are some positives to the lack of industry though. Driving up the mountain part of the town never ceases to amaze me with beautiful views of the landscape that is colored with a wide pallet of different trees and farmland. The land is also highlighted with a gradual change in radiance as the sun rises. Its also important though to feel safe and secure where you live, and these two qualities is what Long Valley excels in. This town is so safe, It was actually just voted as the safest town in New Jersey. I believe that this quality alone is a good enough reason to live in Long valley, even with the gut wrenching taxes that is demanded from Jersey residents.
