It can go beyond that. I hope to retire in a few years, but I don't think I'd leave NJ. My family members are in this state. It would be weird to pack up at 55 and go somewhere and be absolutely alone and not know a soul. It was weird enough for me to do that WITHIN NJ, lol, but at least I know I have a sister 45 minutes away and the rest of them about an hour away.

Not that I'm a millionaire...

Yeah, Short Hills Mall is really beautiful. So is Millburn township itself.

well me too, Im retired, and too used too nj too leave. I just cant see to find a place that suits me. However my earlier statement is the norm. I never went with the norm. I am not leaving but finanically fine retired for the rest of my life in NJ. The only other place I can honestly see myself is CA, and no tax benefit there so where do you go? I just have not found Utopia. I am too used to NJ and all the mental/visually and verbal stimualtion!!! I cant go to a state with vast nothingness!! I need certain things and Im here to stay.

And what a stretch of wealth it is. From Harding down to Bedminster and out to Tewksbury and Mendham. It it contiguous with the Morristown, Madison, Chatham, Summit, Millburn corridor though. Along with Northern Bergen, that's probably 90% of NJ's wealth right there.
