I would have bet money on Alpine being #1. Guess I would have been wrong...

The Most Affluent Top Town in New Jersey Is Mountain Lakes in Morris County-www.njmonthly.com

Almost all (8 out of 10) are in Essex and Bergen county. With all the wealthy western counties like Morris, Hunterdon, etc, that really surprised me.

Generally the closer you are to NYC, the more expensive it is.

Yes, but this list was by income, not house prices. The closer you are to NYC, the more people there are, period. This includes poor and middle class people. I can think of several towns to the west where there are not many poor and middle class. These towns are where wealthy people move to live on large pieces of land and estates because you just can't find 10 acre estates in Essex Fells and Short Hills.

You have to see what these large 10-acre estates in Morris and Somerset Counties are worth. I bet they are worth half of what they would be worth if in West Essex or Bergen Counties, even though such are not supposed to exist.

I am sure those living on the equestrian estates in Far Hills, Bernardsville, Peapack Gladstone could care less about living in Bergen or Essex County.

I'd rather live on an estate in Essex or Bergen as opposed to out in the middle of nowhere.

Somehow, I think my point is being missed.
