     The Town, 2.45 square miles in area, is in the northwest part of Morris County approximately 22 miles west of the George Washington Bridge and 7 miles north of Morristown. The Town is an old established community with an abundance of park lands, older homes, and convenient access to all parts of the Tri-State Metropolitan area. The Town is located close to three major highways: N.J. Route 46 and U.S. Route 80 both running east-west across the state from New York City to eastern Pennsylvania and Route 287, which runs north-south through the center of the Town.
Transportation to the Tri-State Metropolitan area is available via express and local commuter train service and by Lakeland bus service. NJ Transit provides the train service to Hoboken, New Jersey, which connects to PATH trains providing service to New York City. While many residents commute to work in Newark and New York City, many work in the surrounding areas of Morris County.
     Residents are primarily executives, skilled workers and independent business people. Part of the Town's business community consists of the Research and Development Center for Drew Chemical Corporation, two shopping centers, as well as numerous antique shops and other stores located on and around the Main Street Business district. Residential housing available in the Town includes one- and two-family homes, townhouses, and restored homes representing the Colonial, Victorian and Contemporary Eras.
