Many people use the train line which features midtown direct service to commute to jobs in NYC. The trip is about 45 minutes. Or, the Hoboken line takes commuters downtown via Hoboken terminal. Others work in the NJ area which is home to several pharmaceuticals and telecommumications firms (AT&T, Lucent, Merck, Novartis).

In general, what are peoples' priorities in this city? For example, do lives revolve around work, family, socializing, sports, etc.?

You will find a large percentage of the working-age population is engaged in professional occupations. People are very career oriented. There is a mix of one and two income families.

If a friend of yours was thinking of moving to this city or town from far away, what other advice would you give them.

There is a strong sense of history with several homes on Main Street having served as lodging for George Washington during the Revolution. Most towns in the area make similar claims :-)

This is a great place to raise a family and develop a network of stimulating friendships. It is safe, well-governed town, with a mix of history and contemporary living. It offers easy access to work both in NYC and the surrounding area.

The town has grown to offer a wide range of newer housing -- but this is not the area for starter castles which are common in nearby areas.
