Im a mid-20 something single social male moving to Basking Ridge for a job from Los Angeles. Don't know anything about the area.

I really don't want to be out i the boonies where there's not much to do which is the first things I've heard about BaskingRidge "Nice place, not much to do".

Anyone have insight on Good neighborhoods within a half hour commute of basking ridge, preferrably closer to NYC?

I want to avoid rough neighborhoods...this is the type of information I think I can get best from local knowledge.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Morristown. Quite happening- lots of restaurants, bars, nice town center. Parts of the town are not so nice, parts nice. You will be able to tell by visiting I think. 10 miles from Basking Ridge. If you lived near town you could be walking to all of these stores. Several owns around Morristown are right on the train line - Summit, Madison (New Jersey Transit - Home) that goes directly to Penn Station / Madison Square Garden.

I would recommend Summit, Morristown, and SOmerville as good more urban alternatives to Basking Ridge. I live in BR and commute to Morristown 15 minutes. Summit is 20, Somerville 25.

Hi my husband recently found work in Manhattan. We are trying to move with four children of which two are in elementary school. Please recommend where we should live ? NYC or NJ? Please advise reasonable rent and good schools and somewhere we can raise a large family?
