LOL. You missed many towns surrounding the towns on your list. Way too numerous to name. Sorry.

Yuppie stands for "young urban professional". It was a term in the 80's. Considering the fact that none of the towns you listed are urban (in fact they're all suburban), I would say that none of the towns you listed are "yuppie towns".

Suburbs have become the bedrooms for aging yuppies in the NY/NJ area.

Haha. Well I guess they are no longer yuppies then. They would be "o-uppies" (old urban professionals)

Not just the aging yuppies...

And you don't have to live in the urban areas to be a professional in the urban areas
