Yes. But I live in Berkeley Heights and work in Chatham, so I drive that part of Springfield every day. It can be very difficult to pull out onto the street, even if you're not crossing traffic. I think with the affordable housing mandate by the state, some of the smaller towns in NJ are beginning to have density issues, which only makes traffic that much worse.


We looked at a house on a slightly more busy street, then luckily found out in time that there will be a 150 unit development going in around the corner. Safely assuming most of the prospective buyers drive, that's over 100 cars now going down the street.


I know the OP's wife has her heart set on a newer house. I'll repeat what I said before about loving New Providence, though. I'd choose it over any of the towns originally mentioned, but then I also have no problem with older homes and all their quirks and possible maintenance issues. We ended up here, which I also love. Very similar towns.


Sorry for the hijack, OP (if you're still reading). Let us know what you eventually find.

We just moved to Westfield from Hoboken last year and love it. Schools are ranked top in the state in academics and sports. My wife takes express to Newark which is 18 minutes. Then you hop on train from Newark to midtown and it's about half hour/45 minutes.
