An Expat Talks about Living in Bedminster, New Jersey

What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?

Bedminster

What activities, clubs and organizations would you recommend to newcomers to help them meet others?

Most people in the area belong to a church of one kind or another. It depends on your denomination, though, and many people will go to a church in neighboring towns. For kids, there is a town operated recreation camp series (tennis, golf, band, etc.) that runs from the end of the Spring through the Summer. Adults tend to find a group of friends through networking, sporting activities or their kid's schools.

In terms of religious, racial, economic and cultural diversity, are the people of this city or town diverse? Are they accepting of differences? Describe.

It has become more diverse ever since the development of "The Hills" condominiums & town houses, which has introduced a wider range of classes (wealthy to lower-income housing). Many people that have been in Bedminster before its development feel that the quality of these residences will eventually go down, and think it might introduce a bad element to the town. This hasn't happened yet, and a lot of residents believe it never will. You can be sure the town will be vigilant about crime, because it - and the police - don't put up with much. Outside of the hills, it ranges between middle-class to EXTREMELY wealthy. Generally, it demonstrates little diversity.

What are the main industries in this city? What types of career opportunities commonly exist? How do most people find new jobs?

There is a lot of telecom in Bedminster and the towns around it. There are a lot of small businesses, and in a 20-mile radius there are all kinds of industries - just about anything you can imagine. Most people who live in Bedminster don't work in it. It is more about quiet family life than economic development. Those who live here accept high taxes to ensure the quality of life without drawing people to the town on a daily basis.

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

Definitely it is all about family and work. This is a quiet town and values reflect it. It you don't like this kind of environment, you would probably not like it here.

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

Come for the quiet because you won't find much else. People here like golf, tennis and horseback riding, which should give you a good idea as to what the atmosphere is like. If this isn't for you, you would probably be happier elsewhere. Many kids that are looking for more culture and night activities don't move back after college - at least not until they are ready to raise a family. However, if you do like the quiet it is hard to imagine a better town to live in.
