Moving To Short Hills, NJ Was The Best Choice Ever!

We love living in Short Hills, New Jersey, and you will too! The homes are beautiful here, and the community is very family friendly. Our contemporary home sits on a wooded lot with a swimming pool. I have great neighbors and I have made wonderful friends. Short Hills boasts very highly rated schools. My children love it here. We all love spending time at Greenwood Gardens. Employment opportunities are excellent here, both for full-time and part-time employees.

The community of Short Hills is residential, with some shopping and restaurants. The Mall at Short Hills every store imaginable, including Bloomingdale's and Saks Fifth Avenue! There are plenty of other stores, dining establishments, and family fun facilities. We always find plenty to do at night! The location is close to everything. I enjoy an evening at the Paper Mill Playhouse, with Broadway style shows and events. We are a 40 minute car ride to Manhattan, and only one hour from the majestic Atlantic Ocean and Barnegat Bay at the New Jersey shore. We are so happy here!
