If a friend of yours was thinking of moving to this city or town from far away, what other advice would you give them.
It is a great town. I think it's more fun if you have a family (kids, etc) but I think a single person would enjoy it as well. If you feel like you have to be close to NYC then I would try to move closer north (Summit of Morristown) but if you are not planning on going in that frequently, it's fine.
