An Expat Talks about Living in Mendham, New Jersey

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

Mendham

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

Almost all of the small towns in this area are similar in that there isn't a lot going on, and most social activities outside of an established group of friends is through church, school or work. So I would say for most people 30+ that you need to find friends at your job or through your kids activities. Single people can go to Morristown to find entertainment and meet friends and members of the opposite sex. Mendham has a pretty good club in the Mendham Village Racquet Club. This is great for tennis, fitness, racquetball and swimming in the outdoor pool in the summer. It is free to join for the public, although some might find it a hair pricey. This actually is probably is the best bet to meet others as a newcomer.

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

This is not a diverse town, but diversity can be found in nearby Morristown. It is generally a wealthy community and most people are looking for a beautiful, safe place and not diversity.

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

There really are no industries in town... just small businesses and corporations in nearby towns. You can find what you want closeby, outside of certain industries, such as entertainment.

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

Work and family life is most important, though the yuppies and and older folks like them certainly do like to gossip and socialize at country clubs and restaurants in town and the surrounding communities. Sometimes people like to poke their noses into other peoples business due to a lack of anything interesting happening in town.

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

If you want a white upperclass suburb, you have found it. It really is a nice atmosphere and crime is pretty much non-existant, but don't expect too much excitement or diversity.
