Default Many Missing?

Is your list supposed to be of all NJ towns in declining order of per capita income? If so many are missing, such as:

Mountain Lakes - $89,470.
Essex Fells - $89,145.
North Caldwell - $68,974.
Kinnelon - $57,243.

(And this is just a quick list off the top of my head.)

Don't censor the data based on your value judgements. Just put all the towns in and let the data speak for itself.

Its the Rich town that borders my town to the West. Muti-Million dollar mansions and historic cottages can be found in that town. The town itself isn't as nice as its neighbors....

He excluded "country club communities" like Alpine because of little to no commercial development. Don't know about Mountain Lakes or Kinnelon, but Essex Fells and North Caldwell definitely fall into that category.

LOL. Right next to Ridgewood. Very small town, doesn't even have its own high school. The high school went to Ridgewood for years, then Ridgewood booted them out and they went to Midland Park (my hometown). I was the last class to graduate without Ho-Ho-Kus kids, in 1976. Then after about 20 years or so, they went back to Ridgewood.

The day that the first Ho-Ho-Kus high school students started at MPHS, the headline in The Record read "Blue Blood Meets Blue Collar". We didn't take kindly to that, but the kids didn't turn out to be as stuck up as everyone anticipated.
