In their September, 2019 issue, New Jersey Monthly magazine ranked the Top 100 Towns in the state, and quite a few are found in our market area, including the #1 town: Madison.
Madison received top billing based on the magazine’s observations about this appealing municipality:
If you think of Madison as a sweet New Jersey hamlet with a walkable downtown and a Brigadoon vibe, nobody’s going to argue with you. Within the Morris County borough’s 4.21 square miles, everything people move to the suburbs for is within arm’s reach: grassy yards, neighborhood barbecues, a downtown ice cream parlor, a weekly farmers’ market, youth soccer, bike paths and a commuter-rail station. There’s even a Memorial Day parade with floats and fire trucks. But ambience alone does not make Madison the number 1 town in this year’s New Jersey Monthly Top Towns survey. There are also practical considerations like its low crime rate, relatively reasonable taxes, great schools and, above all, its rising home values—all impressive data points that drove Madison to the top of our list.
Other highly-rated towns landing in the Top Ten included in New Jersey Monthly’s Top Towns survey are also in our region:
