I am considering the option of moving to NJ ad I know that some people that consider Westchester also consider NJ. What would you say is the main difference between the two culturally/socailly speaking. How do the public schools compare? I am thinking Larchmont, Pelham, Tuckahoe and Eastchester vs. Warren, Chatham, Westfield, Summit and Clark for example.

Westchester school budgets have held up...for now. NJ districts are looking at steep cuts in the immediate term. But assuming both places make the cuts they need, there won't be much of a difference between the two.

As opposed to Chappaqua? They are the same size. Compare the top school in NJ - Millburn - enrollment is 1400, so is Horace Greely's...
